Excuse me, Matt. The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.

Still making money quietly coding COBOL, and still recommending it as a language for kids to learn if they want a guaranteed income into the foreseeable future. I know lots of Java, Python, C# etc. coders who are out of work, but the COBOL folks are all gainfully employed. Can say the same for Fortran.

COBOL is dead! Long live COBOL!
