    The Mainframe is turning 50 this year, and starting today, CA is kicking off a year-long celebration in honor of the technology that remains at the heart of business, science, government and academia today. As an integral part of the mainframe community, we want to make sure you’re up-to-date on the latest Mainframe50 happenings, and can help spread the word about some of the great things we have planned. 

    To get the celebration started, check out the Mainframe 50 overview here, and take a moment to look at what else we have planned:

    • Mainframe 50 – Radical Then, Radical Now video:  David Kirkpatrick, CEO of Techonomy, discusses the mainframe and the future IT. Watch the video.
    • Mainframe 50 Contest, a trivia competition for mainframe experts that runs Jan. 13 – Feb. 9. Enter for your chance to win! Details and questions can be found at www.ca.com/mainframe50/contest.
    • “Celebrate, Give and Share,” CA Technologies has partnered with Global Giving to choose four great causes that support STEM education. Starting today, CA will donate $1 for every person who clicks on the organization of their choice on the CA Technologies Facebook page, or at www.ca.com/mainframe50/giving

    Mainframe’s 50th anniversary is a year-long celebration, and we’re just getting started. Stay tuned for new activities throughout the year, you won’t believe what else we have planned!
