Each month, z/Action! meets some of the world's most innovative companies as they share how they're expanding horizons and driving success with IBM Z. This month we welcome ColeSoft founder Dave Cole. He’s here to talk about the z/XDC assembler development tool, and share insights from his long career innovating on the IBM Z platform. Joining him is 20-year IBM veteran Paul Newton.
Making Assembler Accessible with Dave Cole and z/XDC
Dave Cole remembers his first encounter with the TSO TEST command, back during the mid-1970s. “I said to myself, I can do better,” he recalls, concluding, “I did better.” Four decades later, ColeSoft z/XDC is the benchmark of assembler tools, relied on by IBM Z developers worldwide for analyzing code. z/XDC continues to evolve -- and it’s helping train the next generation of IBM Z talent. “It’s exciting to get younger people coming around,” Dave says. “We can generate some real excitement once we get somebody who’s committed to that direction.” Listen and hear where z/XDC is headed next … Antarctica, perhaps?
