How Zowe made the mainframe open, simple, and familiar
Project and Program: Enterprise-wide
, Open Source on Z
, SHARE Virtual Experience 2021
The Zowe project launched at Share in August 2019, will be two years old this month ! This talk will cover how the project has grown up to where it is today, with its core components, its incubators, its community, and its customers. The focus will be on how Zowe has been deployed as infrastructure for education classes, at customer sites for automating system operations and devops tasks, by developers learning VS Code rather than ISPF, and by vendors modernizing their mainframe software tools by onboarding them within the Zowe technology stack. Attendees to this talk will get to hear real world examples of where Zowe has been a success, together with where it didn't meet customer needs but was able to evolve and add missing or new features. Speakers include a customer, and a student who has done Master the Mainframe before and after Zowe.
