SHARE 128 in San Jose, California, scheduled for March 5-10, 2017 is now soliciting proposals for presentations. While this may seem far too distant in the future to think about it, the scheduling process for it will begin one week after SHARE 127 in Atlanta, Georgia has ended. So if you think you have an experience to discuss that others would find interesting, please submit it now, rather than later.

Just renewed my CD & DVD subscription, along with a collection of case plates and bumper stickers just in case.

Well, this just arrived.  It came from Nuremburg, but I don't know yet who sent it. I also don't know where I'm going to put it. ;)

This is, to my knowledge, the first publicly announced LinuxONE implementation. If anyone has other links, I would be interested in seeing them as well.

For anyone that wasn't able to attend Connor Krukosky's SHARE presentation about buying a mainframe and setting it up in his basement, the video is now available!

It was quite the talk and he received a standing ovation from the audience of 140+ mainframers.  Which included a number of IBM executives. :)

Connor totally crushed it in this presentation. He had over 130 mainframe systems programmers paying rapt attention and frequently laughing as he detailed the multiple challenges he faced after buying an IBM z890 mainframe for $237.39 several months ago. At age 18, there's no way I could have pulled off such a performance in front of a small crowd, let alone over a hundred people. At the end, he received a standing ovation, which I happily joined in.

No special pre-approval required to participate. If you want to get an early look at SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2, this is how you do it.

SHARE 127 will be in Atlanta from July 31st through August 5th. We've been making a concerted effort to showcase "new and innovative" workloads for the mainframe. And not just on Linux for z Systems. Some of the topics include things like
Docker
Blockchain
Hadoop
Analytics
Apache Tomcat
KVM
Apache Spark
"Mobile"
If you haven't looked lately at what can be done with a mainframe, SHARE is a great conference to get caught up.
SHARE is an independent association user group providing IT and enterprise technology professionals with training, technical content and networking opportunities focused on IBM System z Mainframe Technology.

While the editors of the article got the logo wrong, this is still an article with good stuff in it.
 
OpenStack for the mainframe from SUSE.
Lots of companies offer the OpenStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud distributions. Mark Smith, SUSE's global product and solutions manager, claims that SUSE OpenStack Cloud 6 is the one you can use to transform your data center from IBM z System mainframes to Microsoft Hyper-V with ...

Talks to z/VM?
This I gotta see!
Not for doubt of doability but due to enduring disinterest among so many other would-be doers.

Nice work SUSE ... again.

Yay!  Been trying to get mainframe support announced for some time, so it's nice to see it released.
 
"SUSE has certainly got the jump on Red Hat and Ubuntu by announcing its OpenStack 6 would run on IBM z Systems."

One of the cool things of OpenStack is, that it manages machines across platforms +Bernhard Wiedemann​. The mainframe is a reliable element, and thus I'd prefer to run it there to manage it all. It's good to have the choice of platforms for running it thanks to SuSE's effort, including the choice between z/VM and KVM as endpoint on z.
