Will your open source project run on a mainframe? And beyond!


You probably developed your open source project for a single, "default" architecture like x86, but today there is a growing interest in other architectures, from ARM to Power, and yes, even mainframes (s390x). The talk will present some of the reasons these architectures are growing in popularity, form factors they're available in, and why your open source project may want to consider supporting them.

From there I'll discuss some of the free tools and programs that are available to open source software developers to port their projects to ARM, Power, and s390x, and give some practical guidance on precisely how to get started.
