Open Mainframe Summit aims to connect and inform all those interested in growing the use of mainframes and related technology in dynamic technical and educational sessions. It is open to students, developers, corporate leaders, users and contributors of projects from around the globe looking to learn, network and collaborate. It will feature content tracks that tackle both business and technical strategies for enterprise development and deployment. This year, the premier mainframe event will be co-located with two industry conferences – IBM TechXchange Conference 2023, hosted in Las Vegas on Sept. 11-14; and Open Source in Finance Forum, hosted in New York City on Nov. 1. In today’s episode, hosts Alan Shimel and John Mertic are joined by panelists that include speakers, sponsors and Open Mainframe Project Leaders who discuss what we’re looking forward to for this year’s event.
