  • S509 - I get my CICS enroute Zowe

    For newer CICS developers and system programmers, who may not have grown up with 3270
    emulators and C*** commands, it can be difficult to become productive with non-mainframe
    tools like VS Code, IntelliJ, or ad-hoc scripting and pipeline automation offerings. This talk will
    show how to perform CICS development tasks using familiar form factors like shell scripts and
    VS Code. We'll show an end to end demo of building the GenApp and other exemplary
    applications using free open source tooling, and also cover Db2 Developer for z/OS and other
    free plugins and software tools.

This talk will focus on the DevOps scenarios around the Zowe CLI, the ease of use of the VS Code and IntelliJ plugins, as well the extensibility of the Zowe SDKs and the Zowe Desktop that underpins the Db2 ecosystem. Zowe is open source and encourages everyone and anyone to get involved and we’ll cover how to do this and share customer success stories of where engagement with the Zowe community has benefited IT organizations and vice-versa.
