IBM Destination z wants your expertise! Submit a mainframe-related tip or technique in our community forum for a chance to win the first Destination z Challenge. First prize is a collectible LEGO model of a zEnterprise 114!
Participation is open to all Destination z members with submissions due by May 4, 2012. Soon after our expert panel will select the top three submissions. Tips and techniques from these three finalists will be posted in the community forum where readers will be able to cast their votes for the top tip or technique. The leading vote-getter will be announced in June. The finalists will be featured in the DzInsider enewsletter as well as on destinationz.org.
Finalists will be selected based on their usefulness and insight. Submissions can range from the highly technical, such as commands, shortcuts, etc., to the best bit of advice you received when starting out as a mainframe professional.
The contest is sponsored by Destination z partner Trident Services.
Contest rules are available here.
