Letter to Students:

Dear Students,

The Open Mainframe Project is excited to announce we are accepting up to eight student interns for our summer of 2018 Intern Program. 

Don’t wait to apply: Application deadline February 16th, 2018!   <>                                                                            

Each intern will work closely with a mentor for the duration of his/her internship. If you have a great idea for a development activity for Open Mainframe Project, you can submit the idea as part of your application and, if chosen, the Open Mainframe Project Internship Administrator will find a suitable mentor for you.

Kevin Lee, one of our 2017 interns, shares his experience: "As an intern for the Open Mainframe Project by the Linux Foundation, I tested, improved, and created business networks on Hyperledger Fabric on the mainframe. From my internship at the Linux Foundation, I had the opportunity to not only experience blockchain systems in industry, but also become immersed in the process of developing and building a project from start to completion. As the pioneer and developer of IMMUNIchain during the internship, I worked closely with my mentors on brainstorming, coding, debugging, deploying, testing, and finally presenting my project at the conference. Members of my mentoring team, led by Vicom Infinity CTO Leonard J. Santalucia and IBM Transformation Leader Jin VanStee, were all specialized in different industries and helped to critique and improve my project with their diverse perspectives. From my experience working with the Linux Foundation, I not only become more well-versed in reconciling the varying definitions of blockchain in academia and in industry, but I also gained valuable experience and built meaningful relationships with my mentors."

Don’t wait to apply: Application deadline February 16th, 2018!

We hope to see you this summer!
