IBM Master of the Mainframe contest.Six NPHS students recently entered the IBM Master of the Mainframe contest along with a variety of other high school and university students. The contest challenged students to learn an entirely new computer programming system relatively quickly and is designed to equip students with basic skills to make them more competitive for jobs in the enterprise computing industry. Students linked their own computers to the IBM mainframe system and begin writing codes. Each student was awarded a shirt with the logo “Get Served” from IBM as the prize. IBM has launched this yearly contest to introduce students to an area of the computer field that they may not have had much experience with and to invite students to put their resumes into IBM"s Student Opportunity System, a recruiting tool available to all of IBM"s clients and business partners.
