Brian Zhou, Université M'Hamed
Bougara De Boumerdès (Algeria)
A Zimbabwean student of mathematics, Brian Zhou grew up mentored by his parents, who are both
teachers. He is passionate about
number theory and cryptography,
and his career aspirations are to
help make data more secure.
This year was Zhou's second
time participating in the Master
the Mainframe contest. He won the
regional contest in 2018, and being
one of last year's winners challenged him to learn as much as he
could about mainframes.

Pacome Simon Mbonimpa saw
an announcement for the Master
the Mainframe competition and
began to look into it. He found the
competition challenging but also
relaxing, and enjoyed getting to
utilize his knowledge.

concurrent enrollment computer
science class. After completing
Parts 1 and 2 as a school assignÉ &QÃ%ÉÃÈÉÇÈÉÈÃ&!î %Ã&ÉÃÇ!petition, not expecting to win. She
was especially challenged by using
REXX, but she studied up, letting the

this year, and she plans on attending
the University of Utah to study game
development. Her career goal is to
work as a game developer or software engineer. She hopes to one day
start her own company.

Christos Polemenakos, University

management. The experience was
a departure from his undergraduate experience, where he received
ÄÃÆÄÇÉ!$S%Ã î ÉÃÄ$&%ÃÈÉ$ÉÉÃ Ã
%Ç'"&'$ÉNÃ(Éî È%Ã&Ä&ÃÄ( Ã
multidisciplinary training in art,
technology and business helps him
draw connections in his work. He
enjoys working on interdisciplinary teams where everyone brings
unique perspectives.
Participating in the Master the
Mainframe contest changed what
Polemenakos thought mainframe
computing was, because most of
his programming knowledge is
self-taught. He enjoyed how each
part of the competition built on the
previous parts, introducing new
skills and techniques.
Divyanshu Singh, University of
Petroleum and Energy Studies (India)
Divyanshu Singh is a bachelor's
in technology student studying
computer science with a specialization in mainframe technology.
He enjoys seeing technological

advancements on the mainframe,
which eventually drove him to this
competition. Though he didn't
think about winning when he began, his curiosity and love of learning drove him to succeed.
Singh's career goal is to become
an enterprise platform developer
and work in the IT industry. He's
also interested in quantum computing. He aspires to make data
transactions faster, which will bring
advancements to society.
Avishek Sen, Sudhir Memorial
Institute (India)
Avishek Sen is a high school
student. Though he hasn't taken
computer science in school, he's
passionate about coding and programming languages. He learned
about the competition from his
physics teacher, and it helped him
think about all of the opportunities
that working in the mainframe
could open up for him.
Sen plans to get a degree in the

graduating high school. His favorite
topics are machine learning and AI,
and he wants to work on a project
related to programming infused
with AI and deep learning.

MASTER THE MAINFRAME OPENS
CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
The Master the Mainframe competition
opened up several career opportunities
for Anna McKee, who became the first
woman to win the contest in 2017, winning again in 2018. When the Master the
Mainframe competition returns in 2020,
McKee will be one of its judges. Since
her wins, she has graduated from the
University of North Texas and secured
a job opportunity with IBM, where she
works with IBM Z as an IBM Db2® systems programmer at the
Dallas ISV Center. You can pre-register for the 2020 Master the
Mainframe competition at masterthemainframe.com.
