Learning a Language Older Than Me

Today I've started to learn SAP's ABAP programming language. It's basically COBOL with in-line SQL. Compared with a modern high level language like Perl, it's antique and primitive. BUT if you know ABAP, it's currently the only way to program SAP, and that makes it a very useful skill to have on your CV.

As with my previous SAP course the notes are rubbish, and again the instructor seems very good. Today he almost ignored the course notes all together, rather than just deviate a little as my previous SAP instructor.
