I just received this nice message from Mauro Israel.

Reminds me I could have had a career in programing. At this time, COBOL, this famous COmmonBusiness-Oriented Language was the main thing in terms of software with BASIC, or FORTRAN, PASCAL… All the same, all different. Just codes and procedures with few differences.

COBOL was different. Because it was a woman inspiration.

COBOL language was created by a woman called Grace Hopper in the second half of 1959. It’s still used (less of course) now. As you can see, the impact of women in technology is important.

IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
      PROGRAM-ID. MERRY-CHRISTMAS.
      PROCEDURE DIVISION.
          DISPLAY 'MERRY CHRISTMAS'.
          STOP RUN.
