    In a previous event, we heard from the COO of Interskill Learning and IBM Champion Darren Surch about the amazing certifications that you can obtain for free as part of the IBM zSystems Student Ambassador program from Interskills Learning. On this week's topic, we would like to hear about the following: 

    • Which course(s) are you most excited to learn?
    • Why that particular course(s)?

    Woohoo! @Darren Surch is amazing indeed.

    Anyway, here's my recommendation:

    • Z Enterprise Curriculum, which will provide you with the basics of IBM zSystems hardware,
    • Introduction to the IBM Environment 2.4 Curriculum, which will provide you with the basics of z/OS concepts and development environment for the platform,
    • Cloud Computing Curriculum, cause everything is on the cloud nowadays.

    Those three, along with IBM Z Xplore, will provide you with a solid understanding of the platform and its role in today's cloud era.​ Afterwards, feel free to explore whatever you want, or try and go for one of the IBM Professional Certificates that Interskill offers.

    If you are leaning towards application development, try taking the DevOps and Agile Curriculum, or if you have a passion in security, you won't go wrong with taking the security and RACF courses. While most likely you are unable to practice what you learned there (yet), you will still learn a lot from them.

    Have fun with Interskill!

    I think we should have at least some basic skills certified, including Linux on Z, DB2 and zOS basics (TSO, scheduling, JCL, SAF and RACF)
