Excellent course which provides an introduction to enterprise computing with IBM Z, presented in a very engaging manner by Jeff Bisti. Highly recommended for those who want to learn about mainframes.
AMAZING course covering IBM Z architecture, design, hardware and software components. Thanks Jeff and team for this very comprehensive overview of the platform.

This is really good course for starting with IBM Z. Even though (technically) it is pre-recorded & self-paced course, Jeff and other instructors made it very interactive. I loved the puns and surprise quizzes too. I wish there should be more.
Saying all this, I also want to highlight some points of improvement:
For IT professional like me, who is all into Intel & Windows & Linux guy, there is lots of unlearning required. PC and Mainframe worlds are different right :D. It would be helpful if you guys highlight the similarities such as Bootstrap module in IPL is like Bootloader in PC world etc.
Another issue, I observed that some of the captions are incorrect i.e. spelling mistakes.

I felt this was a great course to learn what the mainframe is, some mainframe related terminology, and a good in-depth description of how some of those things function. I don't think this is a true beginner's course though, as it was presented to be, without some computer background knowledge and schooling, there is a lot a person would have to google and expand on to truly grasp what is being presented. As someone who is finishing up a Computer Science degree and is highly interested in the mainframe however, I found the overall course to highly informative and enjoyable.

This is a great course for an introduction to IBM Z Mainframes. There are a lot of acronyms and terms to be familiar and it can be daunting. Yet, the course is able to provide great reading materials for us to peruse. This is not for beginners per se, it's really for those familiar with IT terms and wants to get their foot at the door with IBM Z Mainframes.

-The course layout makes learning easier than traditional methods of learning.
--Information is broken down into smaller pieces
--The amount of test questions is commensurate to the material that was covered.
--Jeff Bisti is a great instructor; he presents the technical jargon in a fun format

Excelent course I just think more information should be given in presentations or videos instead of Redbooks or Manuals. They tend to be very boring to read
par Shuvojit B•
It was really very informational and compact. I would have liked it more if i got to know more about IOCDS configurations in the videos.
par Pratik G•
Excellent course, that I really enjoyed a lot. learned new terminology of IBM z/os mainframe. thanks to @team IBM and my instructor.

Muy interesante, bien explicado y en el se empiezan a obtener conocimientos de mainframe de una manera sencilla y amena.
par Ali K•
The verbally explained parts were short and useful but perhaps presenting more slides and charts could be useful.
par Amrita M•
It was tough but with all help from the instructor to break it into pieces I manage to complete

Refreshing to have someone present mainframe topics in this format! Great job Jeff!
par Muhammad A R W•
There are too many acronyms Jeff must use full names of things during lecture
par Adem A•
It was so impressive. Thanks, Jeff and IBM for collaborating on these topics.

CHPID is misspelled in the final test, several times, as CHIPID.
par Hossein D•
it was great, just need more diagrams to explain concepts
par Ernesto P E•
too many terms without an in depth graphical explanation
par Eliana R•
