I've just been awarded Cobol Developer of the year for 2009!
It has been a great ride at Xero, from releasing our first beta little more than 2 years ago, to racking up our 6000th customer this week.
Some people doubted us for picking a VSE/ESA environment and the IBM compiler, but the support for 31 bit addressing and dynamic calls really accelerated our development of a Web 2.0 software product.
I'd like to thank all the other forward thinking members of our team for choosing and building on a great platform, and encouraging me to achieve this award.
