Event description
The first standalone GenZ event will include technical workshops, open discussions, guest speakers and group project sessions.

About this Event

Following on from a successful launch at the GSE conference last November, GenZ is proud to announce its first standalone event. This event includes a full day of interactive workshops, guest lectures, open discussions, and group micro-projects. These are all geared towards those that are on the first leg of their mainframe career (those with less than 5 years’ experience).

A Community of Budding Mainframers

One of the most crucial ways to ensure a successful mainframe career is to build a network across the entire mainframe industry as early on as possible. Later, whether looking for specialist support, career advice or even your next job opportunity, having a pool of contacts will prove to be invaluable, as encouraged recently by Mark Wilson, Chairman of GSE Europe:

“The mainframers you meet at conferences and training events will stay the same throughout your career, so it’s worth forming relationships early on and supporting each other’s journey”

Why GenZ?

The GenZ community has been formed specifically to enable new mainframers to network and support each other. It is also entirely run and administered by young mainframe professionals – this ensures that the content is of maximum value to new mainframers, in contrast with other “sales focused” groups.

GenZ plans to hold events throughout the year, incorporating technical workshops, open discussions, guest speakers and team building activities.

By engaging with like-minded peers, you will not only broaden your horizons but will also accelerate your own training journey – whether through knowledge sharing, technical workshops or sessions covering a multitude of mainframe fields.
