Students can win prizes while gaining unique skills that will land them a job at Fortune 500 companies around the world, and there’s no experience needed. This unique, virtual contest is open globally to high school and college students to progressively teach mainframe skills in a real-world enterprise computing environment.
Many educators use this contest to supplement their classroom with broader IT skills. To learn more about how students can benefit from Master the Mainframe and how educators can use it in class, see our faculty guide.

Announcing Legends of Z
Students are much more likely to succeed if they go through the contest with friends in a meetup. To encourage more meetups, we’re organizing a worldwide event the week of October 5 through October 14 called Legends of Z. Legends of Z is a worldwide week of code with thousands of students going through Master the Mainframe at the same time in their own local meetups.
You can read more about this event and the many ways people are leveraging it in my LinkedIn article.
