Welcome new blogger

December 2, 2008 Leave a comment

If you haven’t found his blog already, Steve Baugh has started up an excellent new CICS blog called “The CICS Guy”. In Steve’s own words from his About page ..

Welcome to my blog! I plan to post articles to share my mainframe systems programming knowledge and experience, and perhaps to ask for help now and again. The primary focus will be CICS, as that is where I spend most of my time, but I will likely have some info to share on some other items, such as ISPF, REXX, JCL, and SCLM.

Steve’s only been posting since September but already his blog is packed full of well-written informative posts with plenty of top tips.  What I love the most about this blog is that Steve totally understands the value of sharing information and blogging. This time a snippet from Steve’s first post

I am finding that it is an exciting time to be working in the mainframe environment. Since you are reading this, it is a good bet that you are a mainframer yourself. We are lucky, you and I. Let’s spend some time sharing our insight regarding what makes the mainframe environment the place to be!

This is definitely one to bookmark. You can read Steve’s blog here:
