Program Languages

  • Plankalkul

    Plankalkul was designed by Konrad Zuse in the years between 1942 and 1945 for engineering purposes. The name Plankalkul means "formal system for planning".

    MATH-MATIC is the marketing name for the AT-3 compiler, an early programming language for the UNIVAC I and UNIVAC II. It was created in 1955 by Charles Katz, led by Grace Hopper.

    FORTRAN is a programming language suited for number computations and scientific computing, developed in 1957 by John Backus. Its name is a contraction of FORmula TRANslation.
  • Lisp

    Lisp was designed by John McCarthy in 1958. It was developed for easy manipulation of program strings and its name is an acronym for list processing.

    COBOL is a programming language designed for business use (data processing in national defense) in 1959 by Grace Hopper. The name COBOL stands for COmmon Business-Oriented Language.
  • RPG

    RPG is a programming language for business applications. IBM is its developer and RPG turned into a full programming language in the year of 1959. RPG stands for Report Program Generator

    BASIC stands for "Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code", and it was developed by John G. Kemeny, and Thomas E. Kurtz in May of 1964. It is a general, easy to use , all purpose language used in many applications.
  • Logo

    Logo was designed by Wally Feurzeig, Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon in 1967. It is an educational programming language named after the Greek word "logos" for "thought".
  • Pascal

    Niklaus Wirth designed Pascal in 1968–69. It is a small, efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring. Pascal is named after the famous French mathematician Blaise Pascal.
  • B

    B was a programming language developed by Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie in Bell Labs in 1969. Its name is thought to be a derivation of the programming language BCPL (or Bon). It is used to bootstrap the computer.
  • ML

    ML is a programming language developed in the early 1970's by Robin Milner and has roots tied to Lisp (A.K.A "Lisp with types"). The name ML stands for Meta Language.
  • C

    C was developed by Dennis Ritchie & Bell Labs in 1972. It is a general purpose language that supports structured programming. C's name was inspired by the previous programming language, B.
  • SQL

    SQL is a computer language used for programming and designed for managing data held in a data managing system or streamed in a relational data stream management system. A group in IBM developed SQL in 1974 and it was initially called SEQUEL (Structured English Query Language).
  • ADA

    Ada is a high-level, wide spectrum, object oriented programming language (aircraft navigation), developed by Jean Ichbiah, and S. Tucker Taft in February 1980. Ada was named after the first credited programmer, Ada Lovelace.
  • C++

    C++, named after C, was developed in the early 1980's by a man named Bjarne Stroustrup in Bell Labs. It introduces object-oriented programming to C and provides abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism (4 commonly known features) in C.
  • Python

    Python is a programming language intended for general purpose programming, created in 1991 by Guido van Rossum. The name Python was after Monty Python's Flying Circus, a television show.
  • Visual Basic

    Visual Basic is a programming language designed for Microsoft with the application of a graphical user interface, used to modify select portions of code in the BASIC programming language. It was introduced in 1991 and developed by a man, Alan Cooper, and his team in Microsoft. It is unclear why the program is called Visual Basic, but Microsoft intended this language to be simple and easy to learn.
  • PHP

    PHP is a programming language designed for web development. It was created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994. It stands for "Personal Home Page/Forms Interpreter".
  • Delphi

    Delphi is an event driven language for desktop, mobile, web, and console applications. Delphi's full name is Embarcadero Delphi and it was created by Borland in the years 1995-2008.
  • Java

    Java is a general-purpose computer programming language designed to have as little implementation dependencies as possible (used to create computer applications or other programs). It was developed in 1995 by James Gosling, and its name Java comes from Java coffee.
  • JavaScript

    JavaScript was developed in December of 1995 (after Java) by Netscape Communications Corporation, Mozilla Foundation, and Ecma International. JavaScript is most commonly used as a client side scripting language. It was originally named LiveScript but later changed to JavaScript when it was deployed in the Netscape Navigator 2.0 beta 3.
