59,000 students were trained on IBM mainframe support last year. Participating students can access Systemzjobs.com, a job board that links IBM System z clients with System z professionals.
This year IBM has launched its mainframe competition in Kenya, part of a campaign to develop enterprise computing skills including big data analytics and scalable technology solutions.
REXX, Java and Linux on System z are among the technologies to which students will be exposed. The competition is organized in phases, each successive phase being more difficult that the previous one.
Registration can be done here.
