Welcome To Emmerel Software Systems

The computing world is volatile and changes constantly: new Javascript libraries seemingly daily, new projects from Microsoft, IBM i operating system and language improvements, the mobile platform settling in… the list goes on. Knowing which technologies and projects will stick and constantly updating one’s skills is key to staying relevant.

It’s fast, it’s fun, and I’m glad to be in the thick of it.

I’m Michael Lopez, and full-stack developer and computer consultant located in New York, and owner of Emmerel Software Systems, Inc.

I target the Microsoft, IBM i (AS/400), and Xamarin mobile platforms.

Whether it’s database design, web apps, desktop apps, 5250 workstation apps, mobile apps, or services unifying it all, I’ve probably done it.

I’ve written many systems, mainly for the business industry, and along the way I’ve learned a lot of best practices, and have witnessed a lot of bad practices.

I’ll be posting on this site things that I find to be helpful and interesting, and also things that should be steered away from.
