My first mainframe job—
VTAM Systems Programmer: updating switched major nodes for a branch rollout and deleting the now-obsolete ones.

My favorite mainframe attribute or memory—
The longevity, the scalability and the old war stories of colleagues with more experience. I love how many of the attributes of mainframe that have been around for years are the latest and greatest in the distributed world. Sysplex/clustering, shared resources & engines…I just love it all.
