COBOL Essentials

This course begins with an overview of COBOL, learning some of the basic language features. Students will then write a simple program. As COBOL becomes more familiar, the important issue of Structured COBOL Programming is addressed. Students are encouraged to use these structured techniques as they code additional programs, and all solutions to the exercises will be structured solutions. As the course progresses, students will spend the majority of each day in workshop, with minimal lectures to introduce new topics and then immediately apply them hands-on. When finished, each student will have a good grasp of the essentials of COBOL.
Students must have a basic understanding of the computing environment and skills with an integrated development environment (e.g. TSO/ISPF on an IBM mainframe, MicroFocus COBOL, Rational Developer for System z) with three months experience recommended.
5 Days/Lecture & Lab
