  • Plankalkül

    Designed by Konrad Zuse computer language designed for engineering purpose name is Plan Calculus in english
  • Fortran

    Designed by John Backus
    Used in numerical weather prediction, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, computational physics and computational chemistry the name is a blend from The IBM Mathematical Formula Translating System
  • Lisp

    Designed by John McCarthy Lisp was originally created as a practical mathematical notation for computer programs, influenced by the notation of Alonzo Church's lambda calculus The name LISP derives from "LISt Processing
  • RPG

    Developed by IBM RPG is a high-level programming language (HLL) for business applications
    name acronym for Report Program Generator

    Mainly designed by Grace Hopper Used for finance and administrative systems. Its name is an acronym for COmmon Business-Oriented Language

    Developed by John George Kemeny and Thomas Eugene Kurtz.
    Basic is designed to help begineers get introduced to programming and development. The acronym for BASIC is Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code
  • LOGO

    Designed by Wally Feurzeig andSeymour Papert Logo is a graphic oriented educational programming language
  • B

    Developed By Bell Lab; Worked on mostly by Ken Thompson and helped by Dennis Ritchie.

    Designed by Niklaus Wirth. PASCAL is a imperative and procedural programming language. named in honor of the French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal
  • C

    Developed by Dennis Ritchie at Bell Labs The way C was design it provided constructs that map well to typical machine instructions, and because of that its has found lasting use in apps that was coded assembly
  • ML

    Designed by Robin Milner & others at the University of Edinburgh ML is ageneral-purpose functional programming language ML stands for metalanguage
  • SQL

    Designed by Donald D. Chamberlin and Raymond F. Boyce. special-purpose programming language designed for managing data held in a relational database management system Acronym for Structured Query Language
  • ADA

    is a structured, statically typed, imperative, wide-spectrum, and object-oriented high-level computer programming language, extended from Pascal and other languages. It is a concurrent, systems, and real-time programming langauge. Supports High-integrity apps. Ada was originally designed by a team led by Jean Ichbiah of CII Honeywell Bull for the DoD. Ada is named after Ada Lovelace who is credited as the 1st computer programmer.
  • C++

    Designed by Bjarne Stroustrup added object oriented features, like classes, etc. to C ++ in C++ is increment symbol in C.
  • Python

    Designed by Guido van Rossum Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C. Python's name comes from the television series Monty Python's Flying Circus
  • Visual Basic

    Developed byMicrosoft Enables the rapid application development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications, access to databases using Data Access Objects, Remote Data Objects, or ActiveX Data Objects, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects. Visual Basic was derived from BASIC
  • Java

    Designed by James Gosling and Sun Microsystems Java is a general-purpose, concurrent, class-based, object-oriented computer programming language Named because the developer liked Java Coffee
  • Javascript

    Designed by Brendan Eich JavaScript (JS) is an interpreted computer programming language as part of web browsers, implementations allow client-side scripts to interact with the user, control the browser, communicate asynchronously, and alter the document content that is displayed. The change of name from LiveScript to JavaScript roughly coincided with Netscape adding support for Java technology in its Netscape Navigator web browser
    Netscape wanted a lightweight interpreted language
  • PHP

    Designed by Rasmus Lerdorf PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development PHP originally stood for Personal Home Page, now Hypertext Preprocessor
  • Delphi

    Developed by Borland.
    It is Object oriented, Compiled Code, and uses Visual Programming Tools
