Today, April 8, is the 60th anniversary of the beginning of the conference that eventually came up with the original version of the business-oriented computer language that we all know and love -- COBOL!
Happy Birthday, COBOL!
Cool, I didn't realize that. :) I also remember hearing that Grace Hopper had some involvement with COBOL? Looking on Wikipedia, it says she popularized the idea of machine-independent programming languages, which led to COBOL.
