The audiobook assumes that you are an experienced programmer and want to learn how to develop high performance applications using the latest tools and techniques. The audiobook is also a practical guide to developing high performance applications by optimizing both COBOL code and the application.

The audiobook targets IT professionals who are responsible for the day-to-day development and maintenance of business applications written in COBOL. The audiobook introduces essential concepts of performance analysis and optimization. It also covers many tools and techniques including some advanced techniques such as parallelization, multiprocessing, virtual machines, and XML parsing. With the help of hands-on examples, real world case studies, process maps, and a full-scale application, this audiobook teaches professionals and students alike how to build high performance applications using the latest techniques for optimizing COBOL code using safe hooks provided by COBOL compilers as well as unit testing services.

The audiobook features:

  • Introduction to COBOL
  • Planning data set design
  • Visualizing the data set with a break down matrix
  • Creating the conditional statements
  • Introduction to loops and looping language constructs
  • Introduction to arrays and additional operations of an array

And much more.

A great COBOL book!!

COBOL code still exists and many of the original programmers aren't around to support a program created in the mid-20th century.
