Welcome to my blog! I plan to post articles to share my mainframe systems programming knowledge and experience, and perhaps to ask for help now and again. The primary focus will be CICS, as that is where I spend most of my time, but I will likely have some info to share on some other items, such as ISPF, REXX, JCL, and SCLM.
Just a bit about myself … I have been a systems programmer working primarily with CICS and associated products since the mid-80’s. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Missouri-Rolla (now Missouri S&T) with a BS in Computer Science. I currently make my home in southwest Missouri – which is a great place to live if you can tolerate the occasional tornado warning and ice storm.
