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.
