In this project, you will have your first look at the COBOL programming language. As you view, compile, and execute COBOL code you will learn what COBOL is, where it began, and how it has evolved to remain an important player in today’s business systems. In fact, it is estimated that up to 70% of large corporations still use COBOL for processing data in their mission-critical systems. While the language is not as trendy as Python, Java, or C#, Cobol programmers are currently in high demand—especially in government, financial, and insurance organizations.
