Open Source Summit Europe, which takes place in Dublin, Ireland is on September 13-16 and will have a virtual element.
Open Source Summit is the premier event for open source developers, technologists, and community leaders to collaborate, share information, solve problems, and gain knowledge, furthering open source innovation and ensuring a sustainable open source ecosystem. It is the gathering place for open-source code and community contributors.
Open Source Summit is a conference umbrella, composed of a collection of events covering the most important technologies, topics, and issues affecting open source today.
On Thursday, September 15 at 2-2:45 pm, Jeff Reser, Head of Solution Marketing at SUSE, will give a presentation about “How to Help the Next Generation.”
The technology skills gap is not new. Mainframe organizations are aware of the skills gap and the difficulties of attracting new talent to the mainframe because of misguided notions that it’s an outdated system. Far from being obsolete, many mainframes today are seeing increased workloads as they underpin high volume transactions in a number of industry sectors, boosted especially by the rise in customer facing online and mobile applications. Whole generations of people are “touching” the mainframe in this way without even realizing it. Open Mainframe Project aims to educate the next generation through its hands-on programs including the COBOL Programming Course, Mainframe Open Education and the Mentorship Program. In this presentation, attendees will learn more about these programs and how to can get involved. Add this to your schedule here.
