Matthias@Hacker Hotel - Follow up

The given talk went quite well, I think. You can find the recording under this link. Unfortunately, I can’t share the slides directly.

Beside the link list for more information at the bottom of the post, I need to correct or emphasize a few things from the talk here:

  • The s/360 architecture is built to be not only compatible, as mentioned in the talk. The architecture is binary compatible since 1964!
  • For the IBM it was a 5 billion dollar bet not like mentioned a 1 billion dollar bet.

Further sources and articles which you may be interested to get more information about mainframes:

In addition I want to show you a very good article about 7 mainframe taboos we should break.
