Years in IT—
I got my first mainframe job—
Working on an IBM System/360/40 right out of college writing assembler and PL/1 code
Favorite mainframe attribute—
I like everything about the mainframe. It has kept me employed for 35 years, and it has been fun for almost all of that time. I have never had a job that I haven't enjoyed. I have never left a job because there was something wrong with the job, it was always to do something more interesting or more exciting. Plus it puts food on the table, put my daughters through college and has kept me in guitars and cars. What's there not to like?
