Default Cobol cabal will take over Australia

From http://www.channelregister.co.uk/201...guage_to_know/

All of the big four banks in Australia use Cobol, as well as 50 per cent of the tier two, all of the large insurers and 70 per cent of the second-line ones. Some 50 to 60 per cent of government agencies also use the language. But none of the young people coming into the industry seem to be learning it, or any of the other old languages, like Fortran or Delphi.

Kevin Francis of Object Consulting has said that those who do know how to use these older technologies are able to charge seemingly ludicrous rates.

Francis said: “I have seen examples of developers on older technologies like RPG and Delphi charging twice the rate of a developer on a newer technology.“
Maybe time to dust off your Delphi Developer docs and head for Australia
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
