Project Zowe deep dive for developers. Using and extending the platform through the software development kit.


Presentation

Tools for developers at zOS shops may be locked down in function so a customer evolving quickly in an agile environment must either work with the provided configurability, or else raise enhancement requests for new features in an upcoming release.  For many mainframe shops this leaves them behind the distributed IT world who can work with open source tools and plug and play extensibility.  Project Zowe includes a rich functional web UI and command line interface as part of its base, but through being open source and extensibility it allows this function to be customized and grown by in-house IT shops or software vendors.  This talk will deep dive on how to do this showing examples and the software developer kit (SDK) in action.  These will cover adding new web UI contact to interact with components on the virtual desktop, adding new command line interfaces, and work with the REST APIs and API gateway framework that Zowe provides.  This talk is of interest to anyone who wants to build their own tools or understand how Zowe is constructed to enable them to provide their own solutions to empower z/OS developers.
