On my Youtube channel i recently uploaded some videos for those who want to learn COBOL programming for free.
The real home of the COBOL is undoubtedly, a Mainframe. But you can still learn this programming language for free using OpenCOBOLIDE.
COBOL is free to use on your personal computer. You can use the software known as OpenCOBOLIDE. The software can be downloaded from the link: https://launchpad.net/cobcide/+download
In my YouTube tutorial i teach step by step the entire process to install the software, code your first COBOL program then compile and run it.
