What are Cobol and Mainframe?

A new generation

Welcome to the world of Cobol, a programming language with a rich history that has been, since the 1960s, the standard in payment transaction, amongst other areas. What makes Cobol so indispensable? The answer lies in its stability, robustness, and security. As control software for Mainframe supercomputers, which are crucial for secure and fast payment transactions, both Cobol and Mainframe are an indispensable link in the modern digital world. So indispensable are they, that Mainframes have developed into [one of] the most advanced computers available. Working on a Mainframe is thus also super high-tech and therefore very challenging and innovative!

Technically, there is no reason to move away from Cobol, as it still functions impeccably. However, for too long there has been no investment in training new people, and as the last generation of Cobol developers retires, this has now become a problem. At Quuks, we take on this challenge by training a new generation of Cobol developers!

But make no mistake – learning to program does not a programmer make! The Cobol environment is complex and requires puzzle solving skills in order to build the right solutions. At Quuks we train not only programmers, but real puzzle-solving masters! Learning Cobol programming may not be difficult, but navigating the complex environment in which Cobol is applied takes time, dedication, and expertise. Are you ready to take on the challenge? Sign up and we will help you start a career as a Cobol programmer.
