Localhost IBM 2: Intro to z/OS Mainframe APIs

Tuesday May 26, 2020
8:00pm to 10:00pm EDT
Event is hosted online

Event Description

Participants in this workshop will learn about IBM z/OS Connect, the enterprise platform for developers to improve the connection and communication between teams that create service applications for the server ecosystems and the RESTful API developers. With API Connect participants will learn how to set up existing software applications and services and make them accessible as RESTful APIs.

Powered by IBM Z

IBM Z is the powerful enterprise computing platform that 71% of Fortune 500 companies depend on for their success. In addition to z/OS, IBM Z runs Linux, runs Docker containers, and plays well with other open solutions.
