Fortran Still Lives
I am 71 and still working full time as a developer, primarely in Visual Basic.
I first encountered FORTRAN on an IBM1620 in 1964 at Minnesta's St. Cloud State College (now St. Cloud University). It was the "high level" language available. As I recall, this was a FORTRAN variant developed at the University of Toronto and was called "UTO Fortran". This may be significant as I recall many references over the years to that University contributing to FORTRAN We also wrote in assembler.
It has often been said that FORTRAN was primarily used by the scientific community, but I spent much of my career programming for the commercial world where COBOL dominated, and I often would write specific applications in FORTRAN over the years if the language gave me the capabilities needed. I don't think I was unusual, in that FORTRAN was included in college courses for many years, and many COBOL programmers also knew FORTRAN and could choose between the languages.
I would be surprised, however, unlike COBOL, if much "new code" is developed in FORTRAN. The list of compilers referenced in this article I strongly suspect exist to support legacy applications originally developed in FORTRAN, not for new development. It would be interesting to know if any new applications are being developed in FORTRAN VS other more powerful and modern languages so widely available? If so, why FORTRAN?
