Open Mainframe Project: How Open Source is Powering the Modern Mainframe

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time

Mention a mainframe to someone, and likely a grainy picture composing of spinning tapes and wall to wall computing devices come to mind. But the reality is – these are amazing powerful machines, running critical functions across various industries that touch each of us every day, and are driving new innovation in open source. ​

In this webinar, by the Open Mainframe Project, we will explore the history of Linux and Open Source on mainframe, talk with a large user of Linux on mainframe on it’s impact in their organization, and learn about the community efforts and investment taking place to ensure that mainframe is a sustainable, first class platform for enterprise open source.
