In this podcast, we'll take a look at the people, technology, and culture behind one of the world's most powerful and important computing platforms, the Mainframe. Expect interviews, discussions, and interesting tidbits along the way, with your hosts, Frank and Jeff.
In this very special episode, we usher in the announcement of the new z14 mainframe with an exclusive interview, then get deep down in the guts for a talk about mainframe millicode with super-genius Brenton Belmar. Be warned... this is quite a silly episode, but one that we think you'll enjoy.
