- [Peggy] COBOL was widely used especially for any large volume data processing such as banking institutions, insurance companies, in many government run systems such as social security, retirement and even pension systems. 200 billion lines of COBOL are still in use today and that 90% of the Fortune 500 companies still have COBOL code keeping the lights up. Currently, many of the COBOL programmers from the '70s and '80s are retiring. Subsequently, there is a demand for programmers who know COBOL and can step in to help problem solve issues as they arise. My name is Peggy Fisher and I invite you to join me for my course on LinkedIn Learning which is designed to get you acquainted with the basics or if you're like me, to shake out the cobwebs and get you back up and running with this powerful programming language. COBOL developers today aren't often writing any new COBOL programs. They'll be reviewing and updating existing code. So, this course is designed to review the structure of COBOL programs and provide insight into some of the code features that you might encounter. Okay, buckle up, we're going back in time.
