During the Open Mainframe Project Mentorship Program, Ahmed and Hartanto improved upon the materials of the COBOL Programming Course, a project set to provide free and accessible COBOL training for everyone. Amidst the needs for COBOL programmers, they help to enable the next generation of learners to add COBOL to their tech toolkit. The project community has been amazing, everyone is welcoming of us, and we get to work with various people who are happy to help us even though we are new to the field. Unlike most projects, our project is courseware-based. So we get to explore COBOL in great detail to add to the course. Furthermore, we also learned how to communicate better with each other and got exposed to mainframes, where millions of lines of COBOL code are still in operation today.
