Sr. Engineering Services Architect
Years in IT—
My first mainframe job—
Operator on a Sperry Univac. Fun to look back at the innovation since I used punch cards, had to cut tapes and label them, backup was done by mounting a 8 kilo (18 pounds) disk (like a cheesecake) and provide machine commands to back up one drive to the other.
My favorite mainframe attribute (or memory)—
Should I pick one attribute, it has to be DB2 for z/OS. I got involved with DB2 V1R1M0 in 1985 almost by accident and never left this area. I will probably retire when DB2 retires.
