COBOL is something I use at work. Typically, you see IF blocks like this
But the END-IF part if actually optional. You can just use a period and it does the same thing.
Many headaches if not caught when reading.7
PL/SQL is one of my primaries at work.
Does not have an official "multidimensional array" per-say. Instead you define anonymous tables types and point it at a different "record" type to define the structure. Then you can make a table of that table indexed by string/number/record/etc. It's all tables. Tables of tables of tables.
Reading it can be wild.1
So I'm just wondering if this happened to everyone else because a few friends of mine at work have corroborated my experience.
So, when I was very young and just starting to learn PHP, I was trying to grasp OOP. I read and read about it and did the example tutorials and nothing really did it for me. Then one day, writing some scripts for a game I played, it just hit me. Literally like "oh.....I get it. That's why this is a thing."2
Working full time and going back to college......
I got my full time gig in January. This semester I decided to go back for my bachelor's because I only got my associates degree. Honestly balancing the homework and work isnt that bad. It's trying to get ANYTHING ELSE done....like getting and oil change, going to the dentist, etc. I have to use paid time off for all of it now. :(2
Moved out a few months ago. Love my setup. Dual monitor at desk and a big ass TV + laptop for when I want the couch. Coffee to top it off.20
Just landed my first job. Fresh out of college. Met with my manager a couple days ago and I'm part of the team that's transitioning Cobol to Java. Wooooooop -cries softly-6
