This is my collection of useful information in the world of z/OS application programming.

I appreciate all of the work which these prolific authors compile in technical articles. So I attach great importance to always mention the author whenever I know his name.

Furthermore I'm interested in permanently increasing my collection. So feel free to send me any documents or links to interesting docs which I may take up.

Extra Tip: When selecting a document for viewing you might get the message "Sorry, we are unable to generate a view of the document at this time.". This seems to be a temporary restriction of Google Docs. You can still download the document with the appropriate button in the upper left corner.

This site is under permanent construction. So don't be astonished at design changes.

I'll do my best to ensure a consistent data basis and I try to keep the navigation easy and user-friendly.
