It’s been a month and a few days since I’ve spoken to you, my love. Have you missed me? On a more serious note, I felt that I could not start a new blog series without having closure. I’ve started this series of IBM’s Master the Mainframe 2018 contest on september 11th 2018 and now officially finished it 22nd of january 2019.
Here it is, the badge. W-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-h!
Thank you all!
I wish to thank all few thousands of visitors! Do you see that one last spike? That’s the last day the MTM contest was open, the 31st of december. A total of 440 visitors panicked and checked my website. We cried, laughed, had fun but we got all our work done. Each comment fueled my will to write blogposts and I would also like to thank all viagra and credit card loan spam bots to give me the illusion of 50 new comments per day!
Master the Mainframe 2019
Zowe is a new open source software framework that provides solutions that allow development and operations teams to securely, manage, control, script and develop on the Mainframe like any other cloud platform. Zowe is the first open source project based on z/OS.
I’m very curious about what they’ll come up with in 2019. In the meantime, it might be time to explore Zowe?
What am I going to learn next?
- I’m probably going to rent a VPS and setup a 24/7 online mainframe there. Hetzner will be my go-to VPS hosting, I’m not paid to say this 🙂
- Trying to become a Google grade programmer via https://codingcompetitions.withgoogle.com/hashcode and https://codingcompetitions.withgoogle.com/kickstart.
- Learning Java, Java EE and Enterprise COBOL.
What about you?
What are you going to study? Did you get the badge?
