Interns presented at OSSEU successfully last month. Bob is working with Mae to get the intern’s stories publicized to get more proposals for 2019. Bob also suggested a blog post as a call for project proposals from the community at large - John to follow up with Mae on this.

No updates from Zowe or ADE.

z/VM Cloud Connector currently in IBM open sourcing process - no timetable for when that will be complete.

Bob shared a proposal for a VCU Capstone project to be funded by the TSC - the ask for funding is $5,000. Attendees generally liked the idea. John said he would take the proposal to the email list to approve.
