Slack Open Mainframe Project Access Problems

    Please I need help accessing the Slack Open Mainframe Project.

    I'm beyond frustrated.

    I'm new to IT, and I'm trying to learn COBOL by IBM course.

    I received an email with how to access the system  (COBOL Programming with VSCode Labs Confirmation).

    The email says to :

    "We are using Slack for system access questions and password issues:
    Click this link https://slack.openmainframeproject.org/ to add yourself to
    the Open Mainframe Project Slack workspace. Within this workspace, add the
    cobol-programming-course channel."

    However, Slack does not accept my Gmail email. It says "The email address must match one of the domains listed below. Please try another email." Then it says: 

    You can use any account with the domain:
    • linuxfoundation.org
    • phoenixsoftware.com
    • contractor.linuxfoundation.org
    • virtualzcomputing.com

    Don't have an email address from one of those domains?
    Contact the workspace administrator at Open Mainframe Project for an invitation."

    I only have GMAIL and I'm stuck in this loop.

    Any suggestions?

    I really would like to take this course.

    Thank you so much for any suggestions.

    Valeria, I just responded to your message 1 on 1 as well. Please try the link in the registration email again - it should work. The OMP team tells me the link was reset to ensure our learners can register and get access to the slack workspace.

    Let me know if that does not work.

    Thanks for your help.

    I was able to get that part figure it out.

    Still have not been able to access the first training file. The Zowe profile I created says "no database found" and "Error: The response from Zowe CLI was not successful". Not sure what I am doing wrong.
