On February 20th, I wrote about the resurgence of COBOL as a necessary skill set for a younger generation due to Baby Boomers reaching retirement age. On March 4th, I had the pleasure of speaking with Arunn Ramadoss of Micro Focus about its Action Program. The Action Program provides colleges with the tools needed to teach COBOL. Micro Focus also reaches out to professors and provides additional training including seminars. They are currently reaching out to over 50 universities in several countries.
Listen to this podcast as Arunn gives us information about the Micro Focus efforts, as well as some insight to the COBOL job market. Find additional information at the Micro Focus COBOL portal and links pages.
