If you're an IBM Customer who can program mobile apps, then you'll want in on this! IBM is sponsoring a Mainframe Mobile APP Throwdown. The Mainframe Mobile App Throwdown is an app building contest designed to show IBM System z mainframe clients how easy it is to mobilize an app currently running on their mainframe or to build a new mobile app that can connect to the mainframe. It's a lightweight opportunity for clients to experiment with the IBM Worklight mobile app development platform and comes with free technical assistance. Worklight runs natively on Linux on System z, providing the fastest real-time access to a client's backend data and applications.
The benefits of winning are impressive. Winners will receive a new iPad plus a complimentary pass to the IBM Enterprise2014 conference in Las Vegas.
Of course it's not easy to program an app, and we appreciate that. That's why the winner will also receive the great learning experience of getting to spend a week with our IBM zMobile Experts.
Here's what you need to do to enter to win this package. Sign-up here to get started and to enter the Mainframe APP Throwdown. The Mainframe APP throwdown is open until Sept. 17, 2014. May the best App Developer win!
