My most important intellectual and career move was taking a Boeing COBOL/IMS course in 1982 for $2,100.

It eventually led to a $125 an hour programming job by the turn of the century. And the stops along the way were not bad either. Oh, and the first programming job right out of school was just under $7 an hour.

That would cost about $4800 today using this inflation calculator:

You never mentioned the year. But if you plug that year and value in to the above inflation calculator, you’d get the rate today.
