Programming Languages through history

  • Plankalkul

    Plankalkul is a programming language designed for engineering purposes. It was developed by Konrad Zuse. The publishment was delayed due to war conflicts in Germany.
  • Fortran (Formula Translating System

    Fortran (Formula Translating System
    Fortran is a general-purpose, imperative programming language that was best at working in the areas of numeric computation and scientific computing. It was developed by John Backus.

    MATH-MATIC was developed by Charles Katz and was the early programming language for UNIVAC I and UNIVAC II. It is the marketing name for the AT-3 complier. It was intended as an improvement over the FORTRAN.
  • Lisp

    Lisp is a large group of computer programming languages. It is also called a family. Lisp has very many dialects which have been implemented over many years. The name lisp derives from LISt Processing which is one of lisps major data structures. Lisp was originally created as a practical mathematical notation for computer programs and quickly became the favored language for AI research. Lisp was developed by John McCarthy.
  • COBOL (common business-oriented language)

    COBOL was designed by the Conference on Data Systems Languages. Howard Bromberg, Howard Discount, Vernon Reeves, Jean E. Sammet, William Selden, and Gertrude Tierney. COBOL is mostly associated with business, finance , and administrative systems for companies and even the government.
  • RPG (Report Program Generator)

    RPG (Report Program Generator)
    RPG is a high-level programming language which is most often used for business applications. It was developed by the company IBM. A report program generator is a tool that replicates punched cards on the IBM 1401.
  • Basic (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code)

    Basic (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code)
    Designed by John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz. BASIC is a group of various high-level programming languages which were designed to emphasize that it is easy to use. Some of the languages include Dartmouth BASIC, Microsoft BASIC, and Visual BASIC.
  • Logo

    Logo is an educational programming language. Developed by Daniel G. Bobrow, Wally Feurzeig, Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon. The language was meant to teach concepts of programming related to Lisp.
  • B

    Developed by Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie. B was primarily designed for recursive, non-numeric and, machine independent applications.
  • Pascal

    Pascal is a historically influential imperative and procedural programming language. Developed by Niklaus Wirth as a efficient language encouraging good programming practices.
  • C

    C was developed by Dennis Ritchie. C is an imperative language. An imperitive language is focused on describing how a program will operate. C was designed to be simplistic. Therefore it was useful for applications that were coded in assembly language.
  • ML

    ML is a general-purpose functional programming language. ML stands for metalanguage which is language or symbols used when language itself is being discussed or examined. The purpose of the language was to develop proof tactics in the LCF theorem prover. It was developed by Robin Milner.
  • SQL (Structured Query Language)

    SQL is a special-purpose programming language designed to manage data that is in a relational database management system. Which is a database management system based on the relational model. It can also be used for stream processing in a relational data system. It was oringinally developed by Donald D. Chamberlin at IBM.
  • Ada

    Designed by a team led by Jean Ichbiah. The primary purpose of Ada is the development of of very large software systems. Ada is named after Ada Lovelace who is credited for being the first computer programmer.
  • C++

    The language was designed by Bjarne Stroustrup. This language is a general purpose programming language. It is designed to work best at system programming.
  • Python

    Python is a general-purpose, highe-level programming language. Its designed to emphasize codes readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code. It was developed by Guido van Rossum ffrom the Python Software Foundation.
  • Visual Basic

    Visual Basic
    Visual Basic is one of the adaptation of the BASIC programs. The main purpose of Visual Basic is to be easily learned and used. It was developed by Microsoft.
  • Delphi

    Delphi is an integrated developement environment (IDE) for use in console, desktop graphical, web, and mobile applications. It was developed by the Borland Software Corporation.
  • Java

    Java is a general-purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, It allows you to write programs on any platform and let them run on all platforms. It was Developed by James Gosling.
  • PHP

    PHP is a server-side scripting language which was designed for web developement. It is also used as a general-purpose programming language. While PHP originally stood for Personal Home Page it now stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, which is a recursive backronym. It was developed by Ramsus Lerdorf
  • Javascript

    Javascript is a dynamic computer programming language. It is most commonly used as part of web browsers. It is also used in game development and the creation of desktop and mobile applications.
