Folks are talking about COBOL again, now that people remember that much of what we take for granted runs on it.
- My upstairs neighbor maintains a COBOL codebase
- Admiral Hopper helped develop COBOL
- Edsger Dijkstra dissed COBOL; Edsger Dijkstra is dead; COBOL is still in use
- ESR dissed COBOL in The Jargon File; ESR was cancelled; COBOL is still in use
Too ‘nuff said.
This video is a hoot, if only for the joke about punch cards and responsive design.
