Meet Next-Generation Mainframers
The November/December 2016 issue of IBM Systems Magazine, Mainframe edition, is now out, and it focuses on the millennial mainframer. Several articles highlight new and future z Systems workers.

In the cover story, find out more about the 2016 IBM Master the Mainframe World Championship. The contest showcases the best of the best of students, providing them advanced challenges on the z Systems platform. Meet the champion and other finalists.

In the feature, see how the IBM Academic Initiative program helps educators teach students skills and helps businesses find new mainframe talent. Four young people working on the IBM z platform share their stories.

If you are a new mainframer, we would love to hear your experience or we would love to hear advice from people with more tenure. Share your thoughts below in the comments.
