What happened to Fortran and COBOL? They were a b*tch, back when I was drinking too much. LOL.

Yes, Fortran and COBOL, but also add Pascal that was ‘tough’ way back when.

A decent Cobol programmer can write his own ticket now, and for the foreseeable future.

It’s still heavily used. And we’re not talking some nickel and dime mom and pop hardware store chain.

We’re talking Fortune 500 companies with hundreds of billions of dollars in assets.
