Submission + - The mainframe isn't dead after all (interopsystems.com)

willdavid writes: "Report by Jeff Gould, Interop Systems: Last week I had the occasion to visit SHARE, the premier mainframe conference, which was held in San Jose just down the road from where I live. Based on what I saw, there is one thing I can tell you for sure, and that is that Cobol is not dead. And neither is the mainframe. When I mentioned to one of my friends that I had been to SHARE, he joked that it must have looked like an AARP convention. But this turned out not to be so. While there were certainly a few 60-somethings strolling around the halls, the under 40 generation was also well represented. What struck me the most was not the advanced age of the people but the relative youth of a lot of the software being discussed. http://www1.interopsystems.com/analysis/the-mainframe-isnt-dead-after-all.html"
