Senior consultant, Cobos Product Owner



Years in IT—

My first mainframe job—
Training assistant for Mr. Dornbusch's PL/I courses

My favorite mainframe memory—

In the early 80s, I was in charge of application testing and integration—it was a new profession at this time. I had the chance to develop all the tooling necessary such as source control, a multi-site "build and deploy" and asset management. After a lot of adventures such as putting the mainframe to the Web with the fantastic "Mainframe Integrator Suite," I'm now developing Cobos, a COBOL Eclipse IDE. This is a passion.
