    My LinkedIn profile does not mention COBOL. That is deliberate - for years people were saying that knowing COBOL would make it harder for a programmer to pick up other languages - and there is a kernel of truth to that. Over the 35+ years I wrote code, I’ve used maybe 35 languages, but COBOL was the one that I spent the most time using.

Most of the work that I did over the years was related to healthcare - primarily Electronic Medical Records work, using Tandem computers.
