By Elizabeth K. Joseph posted 9 days ago


A couple months ago, I shared the Call for Proposals for IBM Z Day, specifically calling out the Open Z track. The event is coming up this week, on Wednesday, September 15th!

We've put together a really compelling schedule and I hope you choose to join us. Registration is free, just visit

In this Open Z track, we're thrilled to have speakers from various projects, companies, and organizations, covering:

  • The Open Mainframe Project
  • The latest updates to SUSE Enterprise Linux Server, Red Hat Enterprise Server, and Ubuntu on IBM Z and LinuxONE
  • Ansible for z/OS case studies
  • Containers on IBM Z, from a community perspective
  • The Software Discovery Tool, part of the Open Mainframe Project
  • IBM Python on z/OS
  • IBM Z + DS8K with Open Source and APIs
  • AI/Machine Learning on IBM Cloud Hyper Protect Virtual Servers
  • .NET on IBM Z
  • Testing open source apps with Travis CI on IBM Z

Schedule for the Open Z track can be found here:

But I suggest exploring the whole schedule to follow your interests throughout the event. Replays will be available, so feel free to skip around.

See you there!
