You'd think with all the COBOL advocacy I've been doing, I'd notice, but it slipped past me that this year is COBOL's 60th birthday.
The folk over at MicroFocus however, have been very much on the ball.
- Our Government Runs on a 60-Year-Old Coding Language, and Now It’s Falling Apart (I'm assuming they mean the government is falling apart.)
- COBOL turns 60: Why it will outlive us all.
- How COBOL Still Powers The Global Economy At 60 Years Old .
For those who aren't au fait with COBOL, there's always Wikipedia.
