  • Plankalkul

    Designed by Konrad Zuse to be used for engeneering purposes
  • Math-Matic

    Designed to be an improvement over Fortran by Charles Katz.

    The original dartmouth Basic was designed in 1964 by John George Kemeny and Thomas Eugene Kurtz the name is an acronym for Beginners all purpose symbolic instructional code it was designed to be simple and used interactively the first one to be designed interactively at the time.
  • LOGO

    Made for educational use and to teach computer science concepts by Wally Feurzeig and Seymour Papert
  • B

    Ken Thompson wrote B basing it on BCPL language. Though a powerful language the C programming languag made it outdated and it is no longer in use.
  • Pascal

    Designed by Niklaus Wirth used for data structuring and encourages good programming practices
  • C

    All purpose language developed by Dennis Ritchie it was made to be simple to use and is in use everywhere from micro to supercomputers the idea of this language is in most modern languages even Java.
  • ML

    Developed by Robin Milner general purpose language used to develop proof tapes
  • SQL

    Designed by Donald D. Chamberlin designed to manage data held in a relational database
  • ADA Implemented for first time

    ADA- designed by a team led by Jean Ichbiah for the United States Department of defense its first validated use was on April 11, 1983 at New York University, it is designed for the development of very large software systems it was believed to be one of the most powerful at the time although it was hard to find a compiler that could run it.
  • php

    Php was designed to make web pages easier to design and much faster.
  • Visual Basic

    Currently owned by the Microsoft Corporation sold to Microoft by Alan Cooper designed to be easy to use and derived from Basic
  • Java

    Designed after c and c++ popular for its com,plex yet simple features.
  • Delphi

    Released in 1995 developed by Borland contains tools to make programming for windows easy and fast.
  • Python

    A powerful and popular language often used by google and is in alot of modern computers.
  • Period: to


    Fortran was designed by John W. Backus and was used to do mathmatical calculations.
  • Period: to


    Designed by John Mccarthy designed to offer practical mathmatical notation for computer programs.
  • Period: to


    Developed by IBM and one of the only modernly used languages that still use punch cards.
  • Period: to


    Designed by Bjourne Stroustrue a powerful language often considered intermediate for its combination of high and low level coding it is probably the most popular and used in almost every computer system in some way.
