Programming Computers Back in the Day -- Flowcharting

When I started programming computers, it was using the language COBOL. We had to draw a flowchart of each program before we could begin coding. This is my flowchart template from back in the day. Flowcharting is no longer used, because programs are not one long linear program, but broken down into smart objects, units and methods. The programs today are more complex, but are written in smaller chunks or functions.
