The VM Workshop 2023 takes place on June 22-24 at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. VM Workshop is a grassroots non-profit organization made up of customers, ISVs, and business partners with an interest in the use and growth of the z/VM platform, Linux on IBM Z, and VSE (z/VSE and VSEn).
Open Mainframe will be represented by several project leaders and ambassadors:
On Thursday, June 22 at 11 am – 12 pm, Len Santalucia, Chair of the Open Mainframe Project Governing Board and CTO and Business Development Manager at Vicom Infinity, and John Mertic, Executive Director at Open Mainframe Project, will give a presentation about the “State of the Open Mainframe Project.”
The Open Mainframe Project turns 8 this year, and has seen much success in establishing not only a home for open source on the mainframe, but also has been a driver towards building a diverse and inclusive culture in mainframe to help bring in the next generation. With the planned launch of a mainframe to be used by the open source community and greater collaboration with other open source projects and organizations, mainframe is now becoming more mainstream. In this talk, we will provide an update on the Open Mainframe Project and ways you can engage.
On Friday, June 23 at 11 am – 12 pm, Mike Friesenegger, Chair of Feilong and Solution Architect at SUSE, will give a presentation titled, “Feilong: The Open Source API for z/VM Automation.”
Feilong is an Open Mainframe project. Come learn about the project as well as be introduced to the technical components. A demonstration will show the API in action driving z/VM functionality.
