Welcome to our IBM Z and LinuxONE Community!

Today we're celebrating the launch of our new Fans of IBM zSystems Hub and IBM Z ISV Ecosystem User Group. I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight a few key updates and features we’ve added to our community.

With over 8,500 members, IBM Z and LinuxONE is one of the fastest growing IBM communities. It continues to be our technical and content-rich landing pod - your one-stop shop for getting the latest and greatest information on all things IBM Z and LinuxONE. Bringing together a vibrant community of clients, developers, students, and fans of IBM Z, it’s the go-to platform for sharing cutting-edge technology, exploring opportunities to engage and share in local and online communities, as well as staying up to date on all the excitement this platform brings to our everyday lives!

If you aren’t a member already, join us today to see what community members are sharing in their blogs, videos, and discussions – and stay connected through the many IBM Z events we have planned.

Now check out our newly redesigned community front porch!

  • The Get Involved section is front and center. We have many active user groups for you to join, both global and regional, based on your areas of interest.
