I am a retired z/OS system engineer. The retirement was not my choice I might add, but by the end of 2015 I turned 62, which was the retirement age where I was working, so had to go.


I started back in 1973 working on a s/360-50 running MFT. Since then I have worked in large organisations, interspaced with a 12 year stint working for a vendor (Hitachi Data Systems). It was a lot of fun, sometimes frustrating, but seldom dull.


I have worked mostly in Demark, where I come from, but have lived and worked 15 years in Switzerland and 6 months in Singapore. I am back in Denmark now.


Even though I am officially retired, I am not idle. I have been lucky enough to be involved in a large VM to z/OS conversion project for a university in New York, I have participated in a zD&T installations in Germany and Switzerland, I maintain and work on a zOS 2.4 system on which I develop my freeware utilities. Keeps the little grey cells alive. I have set up a small company Harders-Jensen IT Consult to make it official. So, should another project come around then I am ready. I can assist with anything ISPF and REXX, Assembler coding, setting up and running z/OS and zPD&T systems.
