IBM zSystems zXplore Workshop

I recently co-hosted an exciting workshop with a fellow ambassador Tiiso Senosha on 17/11/22.
I first introduced the students to Enterprise computing then Tiiso followed by introducing the zXplore platform and what the learning platform is about. The workshop followed with a walkthrough of the IBM Z Xplore platform from registration to the first and/or second challenge within Fundamentals (VSC1 and Files1). We actually exceeded the hour going through the challenges with them in depth from following the steps in VSC1 and submitting the required files as well as demonstrating to the students that after successful completion, the Files1 challenge is unlocked. My biggest takeaway from the event was how vital preparation is when organizing an event, it really comes in handy when you lose your composure.
