The expansive environment of mainframe computing continues to develop and adapt to the tumultuous landscape of various sophisticated innovations and disruptive technologies. The Open Mainframe Project serves as the focal point for deployment and use of Linux and Open Source in a mainframe computing environment whilst increasing collaboration across the community as they continue to develop shared toolsets and resources.
Earlier this month, The Open Mainframe Project announced that the Open Mainframe Summit will take place virtually on September 22-23. The open-source initiative enables wide-scale collaboration across the mainframe community that includes speakers from DeployHub, FINOS, Jono Bacon Consulting, the Linux Foundation, ZEDEDA, and more.
The theme for this year’s Open Mainframe Summit was unveiled to focus on expanding beyond the mainframe to highlight a variety of influencers with strengths in relevant areas that leverage technologies, including continuous delivery, edge computing, financial services, and open source. Additionally, it aims to incorporate projects, diversity, and business topics that will offer seasoned professionals, developers, students, and leaders an opportunity to improve their practices and network with like-minded individuals.
“Mainframes are never going away. They have a rich history of being dependable and secure, and that will only get better as they modernize to work within the changing cloud and edge technology. Our second annual Open Mainframe Summit will continue our momentum of being a global celebration of the mainframe where students, developers, executives, open-source enthusiasts, and our community can network, collaborate and share knowledge and best practices. This year, we’re excited to showcase thought leaders of closely related technologies and how they interact and impact mainframe technology,” said John Mertic, Director of Program Management at The Linux Foundation.
Working closely with the CHAOSS Diversity & Inclusion Badging Program, sessions at the conference cover a variety of diverse and inclusive topics as well as technical and business sessions presented by a plethora of industry veterans. These include:
