I am a Mainframer: Personal Stories and Lessons from the Next Generation of Mainframe Developers

August 18, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Join us on Wednesday, August 18 at 8-9 am PDT for a new webinar that explores “Personal Stories and lessons from the next generation of mainframe Developers.”

Five open source mainframe developers will share their personal journey into the mainframe, covering what they’re working on, the challenges and issues (good and bad) and their experiences with customers, the open source community, and more. 

One of the challenges of open source and projects like Zowe is how it can reinvent a 60 year old computing platform for the next generation of developers and system programmers and architects at tomorrow’s IT companies. 

This webinar will shine the light on four key Open Mainframe community members who are playing their part and open the lid on their successes, failures, and questions and answers for the secret sauce that is powering Zowe and other Open Mainframe Projects they are involved with. The success of Zowe and the Open Mainframe Project comes in large part from the diversity and background of its committers, and this panel brings together a group that includes the Zowe Technical Steering Committee lead together with squad members from different companies.

Speakers include:

  • Joe Winchester,  Senior Technical Staff Member at IBM (Moderator)
  • Jakub Balhar, Staff Software Engineer at Broadcom and Zowe TSC Chair
  • Lauren Li, Front-End Developer at IBM
  • Leanid Astrakou, Staff Software Engineer at Rocket
  • Leonid Baranov, Staff Software Engineer at Broadcom
  • Ashley (Nan Nan) Li, Content Designer at IBM
