We recently launched a webinar series to introduce the Visual COBOL product line, its capabilities and the benefits it can bring to your application development team and your business organization.

The first webinar in the series, Visual COBOL – understanding the basics, was well attended and received great feedback. You can take a look at the Q&A session transcript from the webinar on our forum.
