Programming Languages

By SMoutos
  • Plankalkul

    Designed by Konrad Zuse for engineering purposes. Plankalkul is German for "Plan Calculus".
  • Fortran

    Fortran (derived from Formula Translating System) is a general-purpose, imperative programming language that is especially suited to numeric computation and scientific computing. It was originally developed by IBM in the 1950s for scientific and engineering applications.

    MATH-MATIC is the marketing name for the AT-3 compiler, an early programming language for the UNIVAC I and UNIVAC II. Intended as an improvement over FORTRAN. Created by a group led by Charles Katz in 1957.
  • Lisp

    Originally specified in 1958, Lisp is the second-oldest high-level programming language in widespread use today. The name LISP derives from "LISt Processing". Lisp was created by John McCarthy in 1958.

    COBOL, or COmmon Business Oriented Language is primarily used in business, finance, and administrative systems for companies and governments. It was designed in 1959 by the Conference on Data Systems Languages.
  • RPG

    RPG is a high-level programming language for business applications. It was developed by IBM in 1959 as the Report Program Generator.

    BASIC (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) Created by John G. Kemeny and Thomos E. Kurtz, is a beginner, all-purpose code based heavily on C++.
  • Logo

    Logo is an educational programming language, designed in 1967 by Daniel G. Bobrow, Wally Feurzeig, Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon. The language was originally conceived to teach concepts of programming related to LISP.
  • Pascal

    Pascal is an influential imperative and procedural programming language, designed in 1968–1969 and published in 1970 by Niklaus Wirth as a small and efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring.
  • B

    Created by Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie. B was designed for recursive, non-numeric, machine independent applications, such as system and language software. It is a stripped down version of another language called BCPL.
  • C

    C is a general all-purpose language developed by Dennis Ritchie between 1969 and 1973. It is one of the most widely used languages of all time.
  • ML

    ML is a general-purpose functional programming language developed by Robin Milner and others in the early 1970s.
  • SQL

    SQL (Structured Query Language) is a special-purpose programming language designed for managing data held in a relational database management system. SQL was initially developed at IBM by Donald D. Chamberlin and Raymond F. Boyce in the early 1970s.
  • Ada

    Created by a group called HOLWG (High Order Language Working Group) Ada was created to reduce the number of high-level languages used in the US Department of Defense's computer system projects.
  • C++

    C++, created by Bjarne Stroustrup, is a general purpose programming language. It has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing the facilities for low level memory manipulation.
  • Python

    Python is a widely used general-purpose, high-level programming language. Python was conceived in the late 1980s and its implementation was started in December 1989 by Guido van Rossum.
  • Visual Basic

    Visual Basic is a third-generation event-driven programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft for its COM programming model first released in 1991. Programmers can create an application using the components provided by the Visual Basic program itself.
  • PHP

    PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. It was originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994.
  • Delphie

    Delphi is an integrated development environment for console, desktop graphical, web, and mobile applications. It was developed by Borland, the chief architect behind the devlopment was Anders Hejlsberg.
  • Java

    Java is a computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "write once, run anywhere" Java was originally developed by James Gosling in 1995.
  • JavaScript

    Developed by Brenden Eich, JavaScript is a dynamic computer programming language. It is most commonly used as part of web browsers, whose implementations allow client-side scripts to interact with the user, control the browser, communicate asynchronously, and alter the document content that is displayed.
