Migrating Mainframe/VSAM applications to Linux/Postgres
Michael Potter is a long time open source advocate. Often presenting his "Seat Belts and Airbags for bash" presentation. Michael's team has written a system for migrating IBM Mainframe applications to Linux/Postgres.
We will demonstrate a IBM COBOL/CICS/VSAM application running on Linux/Postgres and do a detailed discussion on how VSAM is mapped to Postgres tables. We will also discuss how this is done without changing the COBOL source code.
[Speaker Notes: We could just do the demo and make this a 20 minute presentation. It is not likely that your normal attendees will be interested in this presentation but it is possible that people will specifically come to see this presentation so you may attract people that would not otherwise attend]
[Speaker Notes: Attached are the slides I used at a Linux conference. I will update them to focus on what Postgres fans will want to know]
