Open Mainframe Project 2022 Mainframe Open Education Mentee Tisso Senosha, a student at University of Johannesburg, will give a presentation on Wednesday, January 18 at 9:20-9:30 am EST.
The Mainframe Open Education Project provides students with the resources to learn foundational mainframe skills. As a reviewer, contributor and advisor to the project, Tiiso upskilled himself, influenced how he wants to learn mainframe skills, curated content for the project’s GitBook, and built a student user group that he continues to lead. He also created awareness of the project in the student community. My mentor made it easy to adapt to the core team’s style of work and be able to make an impact. It was fun experience that helped me grow and discover my passion. Lauren Valenti and I met bi-weekly to discuss how far we are in reaching the targets set for me and have a coaching session too. I focused on reviewing the educational content on the Gitbook and acquire more knowledge. However, I took the Mainframe Security Administrator learning path on Interskill. From my mentorship, I learned team-work, leadership skills, content curation, improved my communication skills and found best ways to deliver educational content. It is more about being creative, promoting the project on social media and at different universities, writing blog posts and organising virtual events. Add it to your schedule here.
