Do you know who Lady Ada Lovelace was? How about Charles Babbage? How about Kristine Bastin (née Harper)
and Iris Rivera?
The future of computing, and especially top-end enterprise computing, is full of wonderful, interesting people, ideas
and initiatives, and whether you're talking about Babbage's Analytical Engine, Turing's computing theories, the
founding of SHARE, the visionary ideas of Rear Admiral Grace Hopper, the historical achievements of Fred Brooks, or
the future-foundational efforts of Kristine Bastin and Iris Rivera, the history of the mainframe continues to be populated
by amazing people whose view of the future has led us all forward.
Join zNextGen IBM Rep Luisa Martinez and SHARE Enterprise-Wide Program Officer Reg Harbeck for a retrospective
look at the future of the mainframe context and ecosystem, with a particular focus on the amazing and exceptional
personalities that continue to make it so.-Luisa Martinez-IBM; Reg Harbeck-Mainframe Analytics Ltd.
