Timeline created by princedre
  • FORTRAN

    is a general-purpose, procedure imperative programming language that is especially suited to numeric computation and scientific computing. Designed by John Backus in the 1950s
  • MATH-MATIC

    Created by a group led by Charles Katz in 1957. MATH-MATIC is the marketing name for the AT-3 compiler. Intended as an improvement over FORTRAN.
  • COBOL

    Its name is an acronym for COmmon Business-Oriented Language, defining its primary domain in business, finance, and administrative systems for companies and governments. Designed by Grace Hopper, William Selden, Gertrude Tierney, Howard Bromberg, Howard Discount, Vernon Reeves, Jean E. Sammet in 1959
  • BASIC

    BASIC an acronym for Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code was designed in 1964 by John George Kemeny and Thomas Eugene Kurtz at Dartmouth College to provide computer access to non-science students
  • LOGO

    is a computer programming language used for functional programming. created in 1967 for educational use Daniel G. Bobrow, Wally Feurzeig, Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon
  • PASCAL

    designed in 1968/9 and published in 1970 by Niklaus Wirth. a small and efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring.
  • C

    C is a general-purpose computer programming language developed in 1972 by Dennis Ritchie was designed for implementing system software, it is also widely used for developing portable application software.
  • SQL

    SQL (Structured Query Language) is a database computer language designed for managing data in relational database management systems (RDBMS), and originally based upon relational algebra. Designed by Donald D. Chamberlin Raymond F. Boyce
  • C++

    is a statically typed, free-form, multi-paradigm, compiled. developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1983.
  • ADA

    It was originally designed by a team led by Jean Ichbiah of CII Honeywell Bull under contract to the United States Department of Defense (DoD) from 1977 to 1983 to supersede the hundreds of programming languages then used by the DoD. Ada is strongly typed and compilers are validated for reliability in mission-critical applications, such as avionics software.
  • JAVA

    originally developed by James Gosling and released in 1995. Java is a general-purpose, concurrent, class-based, object-oriented language that is specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible.
  • VISUAL BASIC

    VISUAL BASIC Visual Basic was designed to be easily learned and used by beginner programmers developed by microsoft
