“Building Web apps from scratch using C or COBOL...”

There it is. Using COBOL never would have occurred to me for web pages. HTML and xHTML-CSS were enough.

I was forced to do an interactive system in COBOL once (on an IBM mainframe). It had to have some subroutines done in BAL (assembly), but was mostly done in COBOL (with some REXX scripts supporting things). Those were the days.
