Join the OMP Ambassador Program

By December 11, 2020Blog
The Open Mainframe Project is excited to announce the launch of the Open Mainframe Ambassador Program. Open Mainframe Ambassadors (OMAs) are individuals who are passionate about open source and mainframe, our projects, and modern technology. The influencers and evangelists are already engaged with an Open Mainframe Project host project in some way including contributing to forums, online groups, community events, etc. They are willing to share their expertise and help others learn about the hosted projects and community. The Open Mainframe Ambassador Program exists to empower community members with tools and resources needed to:

  • Promote open source on the mainframe
  • Educate a local community on the Open Mainframe Project mission
  • Contribute to Open Mainframe Project hosted projects
