COBOL is fifty
Anniversaries are coming thick and fast this year, but one which is close to me because it has provided me with most income is that of COBOL. It is not the first machine-independent computer language to be defined (that honour belongs to FORTRAN) but it's probably the one which had most impact. I could say more, but the celebration site (just press the button) says it much better.
