Customers are often reluctant to have too much experimental development on their production machine, even if it is contained in a separate LPAR. Systems programmers may need a sandbox at a more "hands on" level than provided by an LPAR in a production machine. Remote developers may have latency difficulties with very distant 3270 emulator sessions. Production machines may simply lack spare cycles to accommodate developers. The IBM zPDT product can address these problems. It provides a full z/OS system on a Linux PC base. This workshop discusses and demonstrates zPDT in considerable detail.
