Mainframes, or more general mainframes, form the heart of global IT. Because of their efficiency and operating costs, mainframes are almost only operated in very large companies, "normal people" typically do not encounter these machines directly. But if you consider that in online banking only about 30% of the code is listed on the customer's devices, but 70% in the form of COBOL code on a mainframe, you can imagine the economic importance of this technology. In the online course we want to give you the opportunity to learn about mainframe programming. Planned course contents (as of Oct. 2017) include: - Introduction and overview - COBOL - zOS operating system for mainframes - development paradigms - data management
