Timeline created by PyxelTek
  • Plankalkul

    The Plankalkul coding language was released in 1948 by Konrad Zuse designed for engineering purposes
  • Fortran

    The Fortran coding language used to be known as FORTRAN which stood for Formula Translating System. It was developed by John Backus & IBM mainly for calculating computing math equations and scientific computing.

    MATH-MATIC was invented in 1957 by Charles Katz and was inteded to be an improvement over FORTRAN.
  • LISP

    The LISP programming language was developed by John McCarthy in 1958 and is the second oldest high-level programming language in use today. LISP is a group of programming languages which are mainly used for mathematical notation. The word LISP derives from the word LISt Processing.

    COBOL is a business concentrated programming language developed by Grace Hopper, William Selden, Gertrude Tierney, Howard Bromberg, Howard Discount, Vernon Reeves, and Jean E. Sammet in 1959. COBOL stands for COmmon Business Oriented Language
  • RPG

    RPG is a high level business coding language designed by IBM in 1959. And like I said before, it i used for business applications. RPG stands for Report Program Generator.

    The BASIC coding language which stands for Beginner's All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code was developed by John George Kemeny and Thomas Eugene Kurtz in 1964 whose main purpose is to serve as an all-around family of languages being well known for its ease of use.
  • LOGO

    LOGO is a programming language mainly used for education in teachng programming ways similar to LISP. It was developed by Wally Feurzeig and Seymour Papert in 1967 and is known to produce line grapics from a machine called a turtle.
  • B

    The B programming langauge was developed by Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie in 1980. Its main purpsoe was to serve as system and language software.
  • Pascal

    Pascal is a programming languge designed and developed by Nikalus Wirth in 1970. Its main purpose is to teach good programming practices.
  • C

    The C programming language was developed by Dennis Ritchie in 1972 and is most commonly known for being a popular langauge for the Unix operating system.
  • ML

    ML is a programming language designed by Robert Milner and others at the Univerity of Edinburgh in 1973 and it best known for calculating algorithims. ML stands for metalanguage.
  • SQL

    SQL is a programming language developed by ISO/IEC in 1974 and its specialty is managing data held in a regional data management system.
  • ADA

    The ADA programming language was developed Tucker Taft and Jean Ichbiah in 1980. Its main purpose is to be an all-around type of language doing things from financing to support systems. It was given the name ADA after Ada Lovelace who was the first computer programmer.
  • C++

    C++ is a programming language developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1983 and its main purpose is to be a general purpose programming languge.
  • Python

    Python is a programming language designed by Python Software Foundation in 1991 and its desingn emphasizes on code readability and it allows for fewer lines of code compared to other languages.
  • Visual Basic

    Visual Basic is a third generation programming language developed by Microsoft. It is derived from BASIC and is known to be easy to learn.
  • Delphi

    Delphi is a development environment designed for graphical, mobile, and web designing. It was developed in 1995 by Embarcadero Technologies.
  • Java

    Java is a programming language developed by Sun Microsystems and Oracle Corporation in 1995. It is designed to work across multiple platforms without any trouble.
  • JavaScript

    JavaScript was developed by Netscape Communications Corporation and the Mozilla Foundation in 1995 and is most commonly used in web browsers.
  • PHP

    PHP is a programming language designed by the PHP group in 1995 for the purpose of being a general coding language and a server side and web development language.
