Call for project ideas for the Open Mainframe Project summer interns

By December 4, 2018Blog

We have started accepting applications for the 2019 summer internship program and keep getting asked one big question:

“What work needs done to help bring more open source to mainframe?”

And this is where each of you in the community comes in – help us find projects that students could work on this upcoming summer.

The students in the past have done some great work, including:

  • Porting open source projects to mainframe ( like Alpine Linux on the huge side, but also smaller projects like Kibana, nextcloud, and Zabbix )
  • Publishing guides on how to get an open source tool going on mainframe ( for example the guides built for Kubernetes on SLES, Ubuntu, and RHEL.
  • Proof of concept of open source being used to build a solution on mainframe ( such as immunichain which showcased HyperLedger on mainframe )
  • Contributions to an Open Mainframe Project hosted project ( such as Zowe )

Tell us you project idea today! Here’s how you can do it:
