COBOL Fridays: Let’s talk syntax — data types and handling variables

Over the next few weeks, the COBOL Fridays webinar series will focus on syntax. Join us as we get down to the nitty gritty of COBOL.

In this week’s webinar, Dr. David Woolbright of Columbus State University walks you through the data division, the key sections in this division, data types, and handling variables.

This webinar gives you an opportunity to learn firsthand some programming best practices, pitfalls, and answers to commonly asked questions around data and handling variables. You won’t want to miss this extremely informative, detailed session that handles complex concepts with elegant simplicity.

A huge shout-out to Dr. Woolbright. You can find today’s presentation deck and more COBOL content on his website.
