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

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.
