Hello, my name is Steve.
I have managed to get myself a university placement year working on a mainframe using COBOL.
I begin my job in September and have purchased a book I was recommended by a former COBOL dev.
I want to learn the language by coding and I would like to write programs that are not from the book (Murachs Mainframe COBOL). However, I am not sure what ideas I could program as a beginner to the language. I see most systems are for transactions and number crunching, however, I am stuck on a few ideas.
Any help is greatly appreciated as I am enjoying writing the language and understanding the different concepts to modern languages. Also, apologies if this is not the correct place to post this. It seemed like the correct place.
