Introduction to PHP for IBM i5/OS

Great OS, and for it being based on 35 year old concepts, it is STILL ahead of its time. My favorites are hardware execute protection (which just recently made it to x86), integrated database (which Microsoft was going to do with Vista, but dropped), and single level store (Plan 9 has a cousin of this in its virtualized everything architecture).
If like me you wondered WTF is i5, this is nice. The OPM to ILE transition of 1995 seemingly may have (eventually !) inspired the dot-net-CLR philosophy, but I never heard of it till now !
