MainframerZ is a community of app devs, sys progs, and anyone else with an interest in Z Systems. With the addition of AI, and support for new languages (such as Java, Node.js, and so many more), it is an exciting time to be working on the mainframe.
Join us for talks, networking, demos, panels, discussions and workshop events. Get to know like-minded people who are also passionate about the mainframe - there will be plenty of pizza!
Suggested topics of discussion include:
• Specific product talks around CICS, MQ, z/OS Connect EE, DB2, IMS, Zowe etc.
• Carve your career in the Mainframe
• Reframe the Mainframe (Mythbusting)
• Z Skills
• Customer success stories
• MAD for Z (Mainframe Application Developers)
• ...and many more!
We want to know the areas you would be interested in to make sure our events are useful and shaped to your needs. Please comment in the discussion area if there is something you want to suggest, or if you want a chat, or join us on Slack.
Spread the word amongst your friends and colleagues - the more the merrier!
The next event is being planned for June 2019.
Get in touch, let us know what you'd like to see at the next event
Come along to meet other Z professionals, and grow your network. Listen to a series of lightning talks from a range of people currently working in the Z space, and help shape the future of this group.
The lightning talks will be 10 minutes each covering a broad range of topics.
