The objective of this session is to demonstrate through hands-on workshops, the power of collaborative development and delivery enabled by the Enterprise DevOps solutions.
Learn to maximize the capabilities of your Mainframe through IBM DevOps
    Integrated application development and problem analysis (ADFz)
    Managing your source code using modern technology (including Git)
    Building automation (Dependency Based Build DBB) for COBOL or PL/I without a specific source code manager but using a pipeline automation tool (including Jenkins)
    Using a unit testing framework (zUnit) for COBOL or PL/I as part of the development and build environment.
    Using IBM Z Virtual Test Platform (zVTP) for application Integration Testing of a COBOL/CICS/DB2 application
    Application deployments automation to many environments (Urban Code Deploy UCD)
    The labs will also use IBM Z Development and Test Environment (zD&T) as our z/OS system.
This is a no-fee workshop
