The computer language COBOL debuted in 1960, and it’s still running the world’s governments and banks

It’s tried and true. And also, according to this article, not hard to learn.

I do recall a remark by a programmer a few years ago – once you’ve learned one or two languages, it’s not hard to pick up another.

I took a couple of computer science classes in late 1979 as a college freshman. EVEN THEN we were taught COBOL was obsolete!
