Sign up to participate in the Master the Mainframe event! The event will be held Friday October 18th – Saturday October 19th.
In early 2018, Glassdoor listed over 6,380 U.S. “mainframe” jobs and Indeed listed 9,675 jobs in mainframe, COBOL, z/OS, JCL, CICS, and IMS. Based on current growth patterns, IBM predicts that approximately 37,200 new mainframe administration positions will emerge worldwide by 2020. For this, the LRCCD ACM student chapter has teamed up with IBM and the California Department of Technology to provide students from the Sacramento region an opportunity to learn mainframe skills, network with industry proffesionals, and challenge themselves to acquire Digital Badges, and prizes through the IBM MASTER THE MAINFRAME CHALLENGE.
Master the Mainframe is a fun way to learn and experience hands-on mainframe technology with no prior knowledge required. It is a global competition where academic students from around the WORLD can learn and compete for Digital Badges and prizes. More than 85,000 participants in 3,000 schools across 120 countries have participated in the Master the Mainframe learning. In addition to participating in the challenge, students will be exposed to new industry technologies in presentations and live demos provided by IBM, CDT, Software AG, and Compuware.
Join us and gain unique skills required for enterprise systems, learn how to code and build innovations using the mainframe, earn Digital Badges, and find employment opportunities from private and state agencies!
