TOP REVIEWS FROM BASIC SYSTEM PROGRAMMING ON IBM Z
Loved the effort, but it would the Skytap environment ran sluggishly. I wish you could let us use the TN3270 emulator by giving up your Host IP to the participants. Life would be much easier.
Learned quite a bit. Well presented. Though, without access to a mainframe to practice and experiment, this stuff learned will fade away. Would be nice to see a COBOL/Db2 course from IBM
I wish they made the labs easier to use. It was hard to follow and it would have been nice to actually use labs more to make sense of all the lectures.
Interesting and fun set of courses. A good refresher for someone who used to work in mainframes earlier operating systems, such as MVS.
