We on the IBM zSystem team are incredibly appreciative of all of the work that our advocates do to advance awareness for zSystem skill opportunities. We want to take a moment to highlight one of these standouts!
Introducing Zhenyu Wang from South China University of Technology, Guangzho China
As the head coach, I organized the Student Club of IBM. At present, the club has more than 30 students who actively participate in learning and practice activities related to the Mainframe. They have won the first prize in “National Application Competition of the Mainframe” twice.
Do you have any advice for someone who is interested in a career in Mainframes?
Mainframe is a unique and fascinating subject, which is enduring and innovative. Many popular and modern technologies are inspired by the Mainframe. To be a Mainframe engineer, You should be passionate about the Mainframe technologies, update your technical stacks, and arm yourself with IBM Design Thinking Methodologies and tools.
What are some of your best Mainframe event memories?
I participated in the IBM z14 release conference. The experience was amazing. I was lucky to witness the z14 Mainframe, and learned the new technical features of z14. I was so impressive with IBM's innovative ability and the strong vitality of the Mainframe.
I also organized 20 undergraduates to participate in "IBM overseas innovation and entrepreneurship practice course“ in Columbia University. This course enjoyed by all participants. It not only broadened their horizons with diversified cultures, but also improved innovative ability.
Have any questions about how Zhenyu activates students with mainframe skills, or how you can empower your students in a similar way? Comment on this blog and we will be more than happy to work with you!
