2019.02.10 - Chemnitzer Linux Tage 2019

As in most of the past few years, I’ll also attend the Chemnitzer Linux Tage (Chemnitzer Linux Days) this year. For those that don’t know the event, it’s a local Linux Conference in Germany, in the town of Chemnitz, on the campus of the Technical University of Chemnitz. Here is the link for the event: CLT2019.

This year I’ll also hold a talk there: Modern Mainframes and Linux Running on Them. There is a short abstract on the linked site, also including a link to a 1-page short-paper with some more information. In one sentence: it’s about Mainframes and Linux; Linux is running on the Mainframe.

I’ll post the charts here, once I have them, but they are also gonna be posted on the event page. If you are interested in the topic, and on the CLT, make sure to join the talk ☺.

Update 2019.03.12 - First Version of the Slide-Deck is Finished

I finished the first version of the slide-deck: Modern Mainframes & Linux Running on Them.

I managed to more or less follow what I wrote in the abstract/short-paper. Obviously I can’t go into too many details, but I think its a nice overview for someone who hasn’t come in contact with a IBM Z Mainframe yet, and wonders whats it all about.

In my quest to not use PowerPoint (or compatible OpenSource software), I created the whole thing in Latex (LuaTex), using Beamer and the Metropolis theme - adapting the color-theme and adding IBM’s own font face Plex.

Let’s see how it works on Sunday.
