Mainframe Myth Busting

On March 7th, I will be busting mainframe myths and presenting cold hard mainframe facts at the Economic Education Summit V. The Ohio Department of Education Office of Career-Technical Education is putting on the fifth annual event at the Hyatt Regency Columbus. Focused on “bringing education, business, and industry together to improve Ohio’s economy,” the summit provides breakout sessions for 10 industries.

From 9:30-11:45 in Delaware A Room, the Information Technology breakout will be taking place. Other speakers joining me include:

  • Brad Warnick, Manta
  • Brian Callaghan, Nationwide
  • Kathy Pfeiffer, IBM
  • Don Resnik, IBM
  • Stephanie Souryasack, Nationwide
  • Mick Say, JP Morgan Chase

These speakers will cover topics ranging from available jobs in mainframe to System z University, a mainframe apprentice program designed to help technical-minded individuals gain the tools needed to excel in mainframe. Our focus is on meeting Ohio’s needs, and, therefore, the discussion will be JAVA and .net based.
