Programming Language Timeline

  • Plankalkul

    The name means "formal system of planning"and it was developed by Konrad Zuse for engineering purposes.

    Developed by a team led by Charles Katz under the direction of Grace Hopper. It was a business-oriented language. The name was from the FLOW-MATIC.
  • Fortran

    The name is derived from "Formula Translation". It is a general-purpose, imperative programming language that is especially suited to numeric computation and scientific computing, originally developed by IBM

    aka (Common Business Oriented Language). The purpose is to be a compiled English-like computer programming language designed for business use. It was developed by the Conference on Data Systems Languages (CODASYL).
  • Lisp

    The name LISP derives from "LISt Processor". Developed by Steve Russell, it was originally created as a practical mathematical notation for computer programs.
  • Basic

    aka "Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code". It was developed by John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz. The purpose was to be a general-purpose, high-level programming language whose design philosophy emphasizes ease of use.
  • RPG

    Developed by IBM for business applications. RPG stands for Report Program Generator.
  • LOGO

    It was developed as an educational program, by Daniel G. Bobrow, Wally Feurzeig, Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon. The name "Logo" is not an acronym. It was derived from the Greek logos meaning word or "thought" by Feurzeig
  • B

    Designed by D. M. Ritchie and K. L. Thompson, for primarily non-numeric applications such as system programming. Nobody is sure what exactly B stands for, but there are many guesses.

    It is an imperative and procedural programming language. Developed by Niklaus Wirth. It was named in honor of the French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal,
  • C

    Created by Dennis Ritchie, the purpose was to be a a general-purpose, imperative computer programming language, supporting structured programming, lexical variable scope and recursion, while a static type system prevents many unintended operations. It is called "C" because its features were derived from an earlier language called "B",
  • SQL

    "Structured Query Language", developed by IBM. It was developed as a special-purpose programming language designed for managing data held in a relational database management system (RDBMS), or for stream processing in a relational data stream management system
  • ML

    ML stands for MetaLanguage. It is a general-purpose, modular, functional programming language with compile-time type checking and type inference. Developed by Robert Milner and his team.
  • ADA

    Developed by a team led by Dr. Jean Ichbiah at CII-Honeywell-Bull in France. The name “Ada” is not an acronym; it was chosen in honor of Augusta Ada Lovelace, Ada is seeing significant usage worldwide in high-integrity / safety-critical / high-security domains including commercial and military aircraft avionics, air traffic control, railroad systems, and medical devices.
  • C++

    Developed by Bjarne Stroustrup. It is a general purpose programming language, meant to be better than C, by Dennis Ritchie, that is also where the name C++ came from.
  • Python

    It was developed by Guido van Rossum. The design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than possible in languages such as C++ or Java. The name Python does not have significant meaning.
  • Visual Basic

    Developed by Alan Cooper. The purpose was to be relatively easy to be learned and used. The name is from a previous language, "basic".
  • Delphi

    It is a software development kit (SDK) for desktop, mobile, web, and console applications, developed by Anders Hejlsberg. The name "Delphi" started out as a beta codename for a closely guarded skunkworks project at Borland and later was chosen as the language name.
  • Java

    It is a general-purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. Developed by Sun Microsystems‎, The name comes from Java coffee.
  • Javascript

    Developed by Netscape Communications, It was developed for interacting with forms, giving feedback to the user, and detecting when they do certain things. It was originally called mocha, but the name was later changed to Javascript.
  • PHP

    It is a general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to server-side web development. It was developed by ‎Rasmus Lerdorf, The name PHP is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor
