To many people who are thrown to work at a mainframe computer on their first work assignment, they feel lost. The hardware is a complete mystery. It doesn’t have a great user-interface. Mainframe people seem to speak a completely different language. What’s more, the books and manuals are incredibly hard to comprehend.

So, what’s covered in this book? We’ll introduce you to the hardware and peripherals of a mainframe system. You shall become familiar with the jargon surrounding mainframe computers. We’ll talk about the operating system, the software applications installed on a mainframe computer. We’ll also talk about the different people who work on a mainframe. We’ll train you on how to perform certain tasks on the mainframe – like creating or editing files. We’ll educate you on how you can learn mainframe programming.

So, who’s this book for? Whether you are a college sophomore or a graduate or a working professional, it does not matter. This book is for everybody. A novice too can read this book from cover-to-cover and become proficient with the mainframe technology. If you own a personal computer at home, you can read this book.
