    It looks like most of the activity here is related to z/OS. I manage z/VM where I work. Does anyone have any experience or resources related to this? It seems it's a bit hard to find info on it other than at the redbooks website.

    The z/VM community makes use of listserv pretty often, especially the IBMVM one.  Info here

    Consider also joining the z/VM Council where there are monthly meetings and additional forums.  Info here

    Yes I know exactly what you mean.  I do think it would be nice to offer more systems programmer centered options for zVM zOS and Z systems itself. I would like to see more of in the education sector especially access to learning the entire environment from the hardware UP.

    Yes, it is mostly z/OS centric but a little z/VM trickles in on occasion. If you really want to find a list that is dedicated to z/VM, subscribe to IBMVM on Lots of z/VM folks there.

    Within community, there is a topic group that is focused on z/VM --

    There is the opportunity leverage this in addition to the other items that Marcy mentions below.
