    Fans of IBM Z.....

    As we wrap up the year and getting ready for the holiday season, I wanted to share with you some update about our Master the Mainframe program - The program sunset in Sept when we launched IBM Z Xplore learning platform. The system will officially be shut down starting Dec 30th 2021.

    The learning will continue on our IBM Z Xplore learning platform. Please share this with all of your connections and socially amplify and request learners to join our new experiential learning platform - IBM Z Xplore

    Here is a sample message you can post on vairous social platforms!


    You will have through December 30th, 2021 to use Master the Mainframe and complete any challenges that are left open. After that date, this platform will be unavailable, and all access to the Z system using your Master the Mainframe ID will be removed. 

    While Master the Mainframe is closing, the content you know and love can now be found on the IBM Z Xplore learning platform. IBM Z Xplore is fully launched and available globally to anyone interested in developing valuable, in demand IBM Z enterprise computing skills while earning industry-recognized digital badges and earning rewards.

    Thank you for your continued support and participation on Master the Mainframe. We look forward to seeing you on IBM Z Xplore, as you continue your learning about IBM Z, z/os and application skills.
