The application development language, COBOL, is 60! September 1959 saw the first mention of the technical acronym “COBOL”, which was then adopted as the name for the language being specified and developed. Our first COBOL SIG session will kick things off describing the computing language’s contemporary relevance, use cases and prevalence. The language’s history is a fascinating study - the way in which it was designed, its continued evolution and relevance, and a number of defining characteristics have ensured it remains in widespread usage. Join us as we discuss and outline those attributes.
