Cobol For The 21st Century 11th Edition Pdf Download
as a cobol programmer, the ability to write working code is more important than being able to read it. as a developer, you want to write code that will actually do what you want it to do and not just look like it. i want to write code that makes sense and not something that looks like it does. there is a difference in writing correct code and writing working code. and being able to read a well written code will not help you write well written code. if you want to write good code, that is the best way to learn how to write good code.
so, the usa is in control, and i doubt they will fold up their tent just yet. so, what are the chances of a y2k cobol boom in this story, and will it happen, as i think it will? i dont know, but i can tell you that the best places to work in this field are still the big companies that did the original y2k roll-out in the 1990s. those companies still have that work, and that expertise. the people who are still there are working for the knowledge that they learned in the y2k days. i dont know if they are teaching new programmers that, but they are certainly still teaching the old skills. if you want to find out what it takes to be a top programmer in this field, go to where the top people are. there isnt anywhere else to find them. the old y2k companies are still the places to be.
this is another word you are unlikely to run into in a programming job. but, in fact, lots of programming is done in a similar manner. visual basic, cobol, java, and smalltalk all make heavy use of sub-routines. their differences are mostly in the syntax: what declarations you use and how you use them.
i had never used a programming language before, let alone a programming language as difficult as cobol. i was assigned the task of writing a program to print out a message when an error message was received in the mainframe. i was told that if i couldn't do it, then it would have to wait for someone else. so, i began writing a program. the first thing i did was to write a main program. i then proceeded to write a separate program for each subroutine that was needed. the main program would call the subroutines. this is the way cobol programs are written. i didn't have much experience in cobol but i was eager to learn. i was told that i needed to learn how to use cobol. i was told to learn the language from a book. i couldn't afford to buy a book. i went on a journey through the world of computers. after a year, i got a job at a company. i was given a manual which contained a book on cobol. i started studying the manual and the book. it seemed like a good book to work through. in his book (and in the very first book i ever bought that was on cobol) bill reinke explains how one can go from a novice, to a professional after 15 years of work experience in the same programming environment. for example, the first time i coded in cobol, i used a text editor and compiled it on a vax-11/780. (in fact, i think that my first application compiled was an accounting package i wrote in 1984 that processed payroll for a small insurance company.) then, over the next 10 years i would move to a unix-based system. finally, i moved to a windows system. the question is: what will i be using in 15 years? will my first programming language be c#, java, or something else? will i have to learn a completely new environment? you can’t predict the future. 5ec8ef588b
