  • SQL

    Created by Donald D. Chamberlin and Raymond F. Boyce, SQL is a special-purpose programming language designed for managing data in relational database management systems
  • Ada

    On the site, it never gave the exact date it said April 1977
  • C++

  • Python

    Python is a general-purpose, high-level programming language whose design philosophy emphasizes code readability. Its syntax is said to be clear and expressive. Python has a large and comprehensive standard library.
  • Visual Basic

    Visual Basic is a third-generation event-driven programming language and integrated development environment from Microsoft for its COM programming model first released in 1991.
  • JavaScript

  • Delphi

  • Java

  • PHP

    PHP is an open source server-side scripting language designed for Web development to produce dynamic Web pages. It is one of the first developed server-side scripting languages to be embedded into an HTML source document rather than calling an external file to process data.
