When you see the message indicating you have successfully completed Part One, you are ready to move on to Part Two.

Reflect a moment on your experience thus far in the contest. You have successfully connected to and operated in two different environments on IBM's flagship operating system, z/OS; running on a state of the art, enterprise-class mainframe.

There are not many people in the world who can make this claim. It's quite the accomplishment, so well done! Consider putting participation in this contest on your résumé; hands-on mainframe experience distinguishes you from other job seekers and employers are always excited to meet young people who've learned something about the mainframe!

This is also a good time to brag to all your friends by posting a message to your social media networks.

You are now ready for the more difficult challenges in Part Two.
