    Programming Languages Timeline

  • Plankalkul

    Konrad Zuse designed the high-level programming language Plankalkül (Calculus of Programs) in 1945, after moving out of Berlin at the end of World War II.
  • Fortran

    FORTRAN or formula translation was the first high level programming language (software) invented by John Backus for IBM in 1954, and released commercially in 1957.
  • Math-Matic

    Created by a group led by Charles Katz in 1957. Math-Matic was an improvement over Fortran.
  • LISP

    Short for LISt Processing, LISP is a high-level programming used in artificial intelligence research first created by John McCarthy. It quickly became the favored programming language for artificial intelligence

    Short for Common Business Oriented Language, COBOL was developed in 1960 by Grace Hopper, Bob Bemer. Today it is the second-oldest high-level programming language.
  • RPG

    IBM developed RPG. It was a High level programming language for business aplications.

    The original BASIC was first developed at Dartmouth University by John Kemeny, Mary Keller, and Thomas Kurtz. BASIC is short for Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. An easy-to-understand programming language that was popular during 1970 - 1980.
  • LOGO

    LOGO is a high-level programming language known for its graphics capabilities, created by Seymour Papert in 1967. LOGO is often used for young school children as a basic method of programming instructions into a computer to create a graphic.
  • B

    Designed by Ken Thompsom to make smaller files.
  • Pascal

    Pascal was designed in 1970 by Niklaus Wirth to impose programmers a structured programming style. P
  • C

    The C programming language is also a high-level programming language developed by Dennis Ritchie and Brian Kernighan at Bell Labs. The first major program written in C was the Unix operating system.
  • Delphi

    Delphi is a high-level, compiled, strongly typed language that supports structured and object-oriented design. Prof. Niklaus Wirth published the original definition of Pascal in 1971. It was implemented in 1973 with some modifications. Many of the features of Pascal came from earlier languages.
  • ML

    A general purpose functional programming language developed by Robin Milner.
  • SQL

    Structured Query Language designed for managing data held in a relational database management system. Designed by Donald Chamberlin and Raymond Boyce.
  • ADA

    Originally known as DoD-1, Ada was officially given its name in May 1979 and was named after Augusta Ada Byron. Developed by the United States Department of Defense, Ada is a high-level Pascal-based programming language.
  • C++

    Bjarne Stroustrup modified the C language to C++ and created what many considered the most popular programming language ever.
  • Python

    The name is a tribute to the comedy group "Monty Python", but the same name snake is still became the symbol of the language.
    The creator of the language, Guido Van Rossum, was Google employee from 2005 to 2012 and works for Dropbox since. Python is an interpreted language widely used, one of the easiest to learn and use.
  • Visual Basic

    Visual Basic
    Developed by Microsoft. It's successor VB net is extremely popular and widely used today.
  • Java

    Java is a programming language and environment invented by James Gosling and others in 1994. Java is widely used to create Internet applications and other software programs.
  • JavaScript

    Javascript is commonly placed into an HTML, ASP, or a similar file and run directly from the web page to perform tasks such as printing the time and date, creating a calendar, or other tasks. Originally developed by Brendan Eich and known as LiveScript, which was renamed to JavaScript in 1995
  • PHP

    A PHP script produces web pages, and may be embedded inside HTML code as JavaScript but works server side. A PHP script may be used locally. PHP was designed in 1993 by Rasmus Lerdorf because it needs a free tools to program Web pages and released under the name PHP/FI, (Personal Home Pages / Form Interpreter).
