Zowe is the first open source tooling platform for IBM Z and part of the linuxfoundation.org. At its heart is the idea of making the 55 year mainframe platform open, simple and familiar so that non mainframers can use Zowe to perform their day to day development or system programming tasks. In addition, just an operating system is only as good as the apps that build and ship on top of it, Zowe is a layered framework that can be extended by plugins that benefit from base capabilities such as single sign on or shared certificate management, but interface with commercial or in-house systems.

This talk will cover Zowe from all angles showing how the base function operates and can be installed, how it works with Visual Studio and can be used as part of a devops pipeline and how Zowe works alongside Node.js, Jenkins, Python and other open source languages in an enterprise.

The talk will also cover how open Zowe is with its governance with public meetings, open source in github with ZenHub git issues, squad formation, and how anyone no matter how small an individual or large a corporation can participate in Zowe and help shape the future of mainframe tools for the next 55 years.
