NaSPA, like the rest of us, is changing. Some of these changes are exciting, some stressful, but all of them interesting.
My name is Steve force, and I have been a practicing systems professional for 15 years. While working in Europe in 1989, I learned about NaSPA through Candle Corporation and subsequently joined. At the time, I was working as an MVS systems consultant, primarily on MVS systems with the JES3 subsystem, and thought it would be interesting to write an article comparing JES2 with JES3. I soon discovered writing an article was work. However, with the patient help of Tom Sprague and Amy Birschbach, the editors at Technical Enterprises, Inc., I soon discovered even I could write (it is amazing how people trained in journalism can spin silk from binder twine.)
