Programming Languages

  • Plankalkül

    Plankalkül is an engineer based programming language developed by German scientist Konrad Zuse. It's considered to be one of the first if not the first high-level programming language to be used for a computer. Despite being high-level is pretty basic on what it can be used for, but it was a pioneering language at the time that it was developed, and inspired many other high-level languages to be made.
  • Fortran

    Fortran is considered to be a compiled imperative programming language used for purposes such as scientific and numeric processing. It can even be used for architectural purposes as it has been used to help the design of airplane structures, bridges, and even buildings. The name Fortran is derived from Formula Translation and it was developed by John Backus of IBM.

    MATH-MATIC is a programming language designed around helping the AT-3 or Algebraic Translator 3 to work for the UNIVAC I and UNIVAC II which were business-oriented as well as research-oriented computers. The language was mainly a compiler with the skills to deal with arithmetic and algebraic expressions. It was designed by Remington Rand manufacturer under a team lead by Charles Katz.
  • Lisp

    Lisp, also known as Common Lisp, is a high-level programming language developed by John McCarthy and Steve Russel. The name derived from "LISt Processor". It was originally used for mathematical purposes such as mathematic notation in computer programs. However, now it's actually used for a lot of AI (artificial intelligence) purposes and it was of the earliest languages to use things such as storage management, tree data structures, and many other ideas in computer science.

    COBOL which stands for common business-oriented language was developed with the intent of use for as the name says business-oriented purposes. It's used in many governmental, financial, and large corporations/businesses as a means of an administration system such as automatic transactions and job processing. It was developed by a group of programmers who belonged to the CODASYL conference committee, with Jean E. Sammet being one of the earliest developers.
  • RPG

    RPG also known as IBM RPG is a programming language made with the intent of being used for business purposes/applications. It was originally used in operating systems as a Report Program Generation (Hence the name RPG), but eventually, it went on to be a full-on language developed by IBM making it very popular among the business and commercial world in various applications.

    BASIC is a programming language developed by John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz. It's was designed in such a way to be relatively easy to use to create basic level programs, as the name states it's essentially "basic" to use. Many schools and amateur computer enthusiasts found comfort in teaching and learning this language.
  • LOGO

    LOGO derived from the Greek word logos which means word or thought is a programming language widely used for visual representations of computer processing which is utilized through controlling a "turtle" or vector graphics on screen in order to make it move or essentially draw out things to an exact degree on screen. This language is apart of the Lisp family and was developed by American Research and development company Bolt, Beranek and Newman.
  • B

    B is a programing language developed by Ken Thomson of Bell Labs. It's mainly used for tasks such as decision making, processing of characters and bit strings, as well as the processing of integers. It's said that the name B is derived from another programing language named BCPL.

    PASCAL is considered to be a high-level and general-purpose programming language that has a focus on being easily teachable and structural which add so it's simplicity. PASCAL is also used for developing programs that are orderly and reliable. Niklaus Wirth developed this language and named it after a French mathematician named Blaise Pascal.
  • C

    C is a structured and general-purpose programming language developed by Dennis Ritchie from Bell Labs. C is used in a variety of different ways to provide instructions to machines. It's used in Operating Systems, various software, and even supercomputers. The name C means combined and is derived from another programming language called BCPL (Basic Combined Programming Language).
  • ML

    ML which stands for "Meta Language" is a programming language primarily used for the research of other programming languages to study the inner workings and numeric operations within them. ML has also been used for mathematic theorem proving. It's also apart of the Lisp family and is even considered to be an extension of Lisp. It was developed by Robin Milner and others at the University of Edinburgh
  • SQL

    SQL which stands for Structured Query Language, is considered to be a domain-specific programming language responsible for organizing and managing databases either on web applications or full-on systems. It can be used for simple things such as updating data in a database or adding/removing data from a database. It's very valuable for easy management among businesses or even simple computer database setups. It was developed by Donald D. Chamberlin and Raymond F. Boyce.
  • ADA

    ADA is a high-level programming language developed by Jean Ichbiah that is primarily used for systems in which an error in the programming can lead to major consequences. It's been used in things such as military operations, Air Traffic Control, railways, and banking purposes. Its name is derived from Ada Lovelace who is considered the first-ever computer programmer.
  • C++

    C++ is a programming language that is derived from another popular language named C. C++ is essentially an extension of C as it's considered to be more flexible and object-oriented. It's used in various ways such as in web browsers, video game servers, and operating systems. It was designed by Bjarne Stroustrup a Danish computer scientist.
  • Python

    Python is a highly popular and very strong programming language that has a focus on concepts such as code readability, whitespace, and clearness. It can be used for a wide range of subjects ranging from web development to even scientific purposes such as Artificial Intelligence. It's considered to be a high-level programming language , but it's relatively easy to pick up compared to other programming languages. The language was created by Guido van Rossum who named it after Monty Python.
  • Visual Basic

    Visual Basic
    Designed by Microsoft, Visual Basic is an easy to use application development programming language. It allows for visual representations of the software users can create and allows for simple execution as said applications along with detailed error reports. You can also use it do create macros, data-processing tables, and many more. It's widely used among beginner programmers hence the "basic" in Visual Basic.
  • Delphi

    Delphi developed by Anders Hejlsberg is a programming language as well as something called an IDE which stands for Integrated Development Environment. Because of this addition, it is primarily used for web, console, and mobile device purposes such as in IOS and Android. It's also very similar to Microsoft's Visual Basic in terms of how it's used to make programs.
  • PHP

    PHP is a script-based programming language that is widely used in various web applications. It works along with various aspects of websites such as data encryption, databases, cookies, and many more. The name PHP stands for Personal Home Page (Tools) and was effectively developed by Rasmus Lerdorf of Zend Technologies.
  • Java

    Java is a computer programming language that is based around being object-oriented, and class-based. It's used in a lot of desktop, mobile, and data processing applications around the world. This makes it one of the most popular languages at the moment. It even claimed to be run on about 3 billion computer systems worldwide. This language was developed by James Gosling and has said to get it's named from the Indonesian Coffee named Java.
  • JavaScript

    JavaScript is a high-level web-oriented programming language heavily used in web applications. It's essential to most popular web pages as well as most popular web browsers. It's related to a family of web-based languages such as CSS and HTML and it often works alongside them. It was developed by Brendan Eich who has based it around another languaged called ECMAScript.
