From the Author:

Microsoft's .NET Environment represents the single most substantial impact upon COBOL since the advent of IBM's ISPF in the 1970's. Not only does it provide an ultra-modern development environment in Visual Studio .NET, which COBOL now plugs into, but it provides in excess of 5,000 callable classes and API's that COBOL developers have direct, unfiltered, non-wrappered access to. COBOL is now on a level playing field with C++, C# and Visual Basic, as COBOL developers use the identical screen painters and development environment for developing GUI Windows applications as well as ASPX Web Form applications, and may even develop Web Services in COBOL. Legacy programs can be brought into this exciting new environment, allowing COBOL to fully participate on the PC, on the Network and on the Web. This book includes approximately 23 hours of video based training on 2 CD's. It is not fluff - it is real programming, using these new technologies and includes numerous sample COBOL programs to help get programmers started. But more importantly, is explains the concepts from the ground up, so that COBOL programmers who are unfamiliar with this new environment may learn how to use it quickly and efficiently. I truly hope that COBOL programmers everywhere will find this extremely useful in programming for the future.
-Howard E. Hinman
