COBOL Advocacy (7 Part Series)

1) COBOL - not dead; not dying; not even idle 2) "The Beauty of the COBOL Programming Language" 3 ... 5 3) COBOL - not dead; not dying; not even idle (#2) 4) COBOL's 60th birthday 5) COBOL - not dead; not dying; not even idle (#3) 6) COBOL - not dead; not dying; not even idle (#4) 7) For those who learn COBOL

I have no idea what the provenance of Granite Geek is, but a few days back they published Calling all COBOL cowhands!.

On the page is a link to an article on Medium's OneZero entitled IBM Rallies COBOL Engineers to Save Overloaded Unemployment Systems.

That links to an item on IBM's own site, written by Meredith Stowell, Vice President, IBM Z Ecosystem, entitled IBM and Open Mainframe Project Mobilize to Connect States with COBOL Skills.

Finally, that links to IBM and Open Mainframe Project Mobilize to Connect States with COBOL Skills, also written by Meredith Stowell.

So not only is COBOL not going away anytime soon, there's actually serious money to be made knowing and programming in it. You have been told!

Programmed Canon Canola calculators in 1977. Assorted platforms and languages ever since. Assisting with HOPL.info. I am NOT looking for work -- I've got more than enough to do.
