MARC I. SMITH
IBM System z Marketing, IBM Destination z Project Manager and University Ambassador in Texas
Years in IT—
32 with IBM.
My first mainframe job—
I authored the debug guide for the first release of VM/XA.
My favorite mainframe memory—
It has to be seeing more than 150 students across two days at my very first Mainframe Exploration Day at the System z Technical University in San Antonio. The looks on their faces and their inquisitiveness as they first discovered what a mainframe was and then the community that surrounds it was, in a word, "Priceless!"
