Today we celebrate the 40th year anniversary of the COBOL programming language. Actually the language itself is a little bit older but on this day 40 years ago the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) developed the first standard form of the language called COBOL-68. Cheers!
I’ve been programming in the Java language for more than 10 years now, but I never got around to getting myself certified. That is until last month when I did the Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform exam. Today the mail delivered an envelope from Sun Microsystems containing my SCJP certificate, a card stating I’m a Sun Certified Professional and best of all a neat pin.
