Over the past 30 years, Rocket has remained dedicated to its goal of modernizing legacy systems. This includes our longtime commitment to building open source software for the mainframe. […]

Rocket.Build 2019: Bigger and better

As I reflect on how far Rocket.Build has come, I can’t help but think back to the very first coding challenge we hosted in 2013. What started as a small hackathon during the annual Rocket Leadership Summit in Boston has grown to a series of global events that I look forward to every year. From […]

Rocket.Build 2019: Raising the bar year after year

Some of my favorite memories as a kid were family picnics in the summer.  From a kid’s perspective, it’s clear why. I had more friends and family to play with than usual, and I could eat as much food as I wanted (an obvious win.) But underneath it all, what I loved was the freedom […]

It’s a simple metaphor that means to think differently, unconventionally, or from a new perspective—necessary ingredients in software development, and problem solving. At Rocket.Build this week, we’ve invited participants […]

Here in Boston, Rocket Software is enjoying our sixth, and biggest Rocket.Build hackathon event. When the executive team first discussed this year’s project themes (four, total,) […]

Rocket.Build 2019: Using open source to improve the mainframe experience

Some ideas come from clever visionaries—this wasn’t one of those ideas. This idea was born from optimism, assuming “it’ll just work,” and subsequently having everything blow up in my face. When I worked on Zowe, we used Ant scripts to automate the build process of the desktop and its applications. Ant could handle everything from […]
