COBOL and The Definitive State of the World’s Greatest Legacy Ecosystem — DZone Agile Zone

First, I’m going to “introduce” myself in an attempt to establish a greater level of credibility than I might otherwise be able to muster! I’ve been working for over 30 years. My entire career has been in the COBOL space, the vast majority of it working with Global 2000 companies to deliver COBOL application development…

I cut my teeth in the Cobol world.  I was college trained in Fortran, Algol 60, Snowball, and PL1.  The place I was working at as a collection agent found out I was a computer major and offered me a job to manage the IT Department with a Honeywell Mode 58 running a 5K version Mini-Cobol and ISAM.  It was one of the best times of my career. I moved up to using Multics and Cobol to write utility programs and training programs for high school kids.  My mainframe Cobol was on a banks IBM 360 system.

I guess for the right amount of money I could get back up on the bicycle again.  😉
