Perth, Australia - Nov 3, 2008 (PressReleasePoint) - Longpela Expertise today
released the first book to introduce Mainframes in fun, easy-to-read English.
Titled "What On Earth is a Mainframe," this book clearly explains
the IBM zSeries computing platform and z/OS operating system.
What On Earth is a Mainframe provides the "must-know" Mainframe details
for any Mainframe beginner. It covers the basics about Mainframe hardware, systems
and terminology without getting bogged down in technical jargon. It also includes
management issues, hot new Mainframe topics, and many other facts and stories
that programmers, managers, CIOs and industry commentators will find invaluable.
"I've always been amazed that there isn't a Mainframe beginner's book
around that's fun and easy to read," author David Stephens said. "So
three years ago I decided to try and write one myself."
At 200 pages, What On Earth is a Mainframe is an easy read, and ideal for anyone
needing to find their Mainframe feet fast.
What On Earth is a Mainframe is available for sale online at lulu.com and through
