In History
  • Plankalkul

    is a programming language designed for engineering purposes by Konrad Zuse between 1943 and 1945. It was the first high-level non-von Neumann programming language to be designed for a computer.
  • FORTRAN (FORmula TRANslation)

    designed to allow easy translation of math formulas into code
  • MATH-MATIC

    Early programming language for UNIVAC I and UNIVAC II. Intended as an improvement over FORTRAN. Created by a group led by Charles Katz in 1957.
  • Lisp

    Lisp was originally created as a practical mathematical notation for computer programs, influenced by the notation of Alonzo Church's lambda calculus.
  • COBOL (COmmon Business-Oriented Language)

    designed by Grace Hopper. primary domain in business, finance, and administrative systems for companies and governments.
  • RPG (Report Program Generator)

    high-level programming language (HLL) for business applications. RPG is an IBM proprietary language and is available only on IBM i or OS/400 based systems. Developed by IBM
  • BASIC - (Beginner's All Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code)

    develpoed by by mathematicians John George Kemeny and Tom Kurtzas as a teaching tool for undergraduates. a simple computer language considered an easy step for students to learn before more powerful languages such as FORTRAN.
  • LOGO

    designed in 1967 by Daniel G. Bobrow, Wally Feurzeig, Seymour Papert and Cynthia Solomon. Today the language is remembered mainly for its use of "turtle graphics", in which commands for movement and drawing produced line graphics either on screen or with a small robot called a "turtle". The language was originally conceived to teach concepts of programming related to LISP and only later to enable what Papert called "body-syntonic reasoning" where students could understand (and predict and reaso
  • PASCAL

    published in 1970 by Niklaus Wirth as a small and efficient language intended to encourage good programming practices using structured programming and data structuring.
  • B

    designed by D. M. Ritchie and K. L. Thompson, for primarily non-numeric applications such as system programming. These typically involve complex logical decision-making, and processing of integers, characters, and bit strings. It is almost extinct, as it was replaced with the C language.
  • ML

    ML is often referred to as an impure functional language, because it does not encapsulate side-effects, unlike purely functional programming languages such as Haskell. developed by Robin Milner and others in the early 1970s at the University of Edinburgh
  • C

    initially developed by Dennis Ritchie.Its design provides constructs that map efficiently to typical machine instructions, and therefore it has found lasting use in applications that had formerly been coded in assembly language, most notably system software like the Unix computer operating system
  • SQL (Structered Query Language)

    SQL was initially developed at IBM by Donald D. Chamberlin, Donald C. Messerly, and Raymond F. Boyce in the early 1970s. This version, initially called SEQUEL (Structured English Query Language), was designed to manipulate and retrieve data stored in IBM's original quasi-relational database management system, System R, which a group at IBM San Jose Research Laboratory had developed during the 1970s
  • C++

    Developed by Bjarne Stroustrup. C++ was originally named C with Classes, adding object-oriented features, such as classes, and other enhancements to the C programming language. The language was renamed C++ in 1983. statically typed, free-form, multi-paradigm and compiled
  • ADA

    Ada is a modern programming language designed for large, long-lived applications – and embedded systems in particular – where reliability and efficiency are essential. developed by a team led by Dr. Jean Ichbiah at CII-Honeywell-Bull in France.
  • python

    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. The language provides constructs intended to enable clear programs on both a small and large scale.
  • Visual Basic

    Visual Basic is a third-generation event-driven programming language and integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft for its COM programming model first released in 1991. Microsoft intends Visual Basic to be relatively easy to learn and use
  • Delphi

    The Delphi programming language was developed by Borland and is the descendant of Turbo Pascal. Delphi was released in February 1995. Delphi is a native code compiler that runs under Window v3.1 or Windows '95. Delphi is essentially object Pascal with similar programming tools found in Microsoft Visual Basic 3.0.
  • PHP

    Originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1995. PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language.
  • JAVA

    James Gosling, Mike Sheridan, and Patrick Naughton initiated the Java language project in June 1991.The language derives much of its syntax from C and C++, but it has fewer low-level facilities than either of them
  • Javascript

    JavaScript was originally developed by Brendan Eich. the language was officially called LiveScript when it first shipped in beta releases of Netscape Navigator 2.0 in September 1995, but it was renamed JavaScript when it was deployed in the Netscape browser version 2.0B3.
