Computer Languages History
Below, you can see the preview of the Computer Languages History (move on the white zone to get a bigger image): If you want to print this timeline, you can freely download one of the following PDF files: There is only 50 languages listed in my chart, if you don't find "your" language, see The Language List of Bill Kinnersley (he has listed more than 2500 languages). Here is the ChangeLog of this history. Note: I have now a page where I explain how I build this chart.

Guillaume Marceau: The speed, size and dependability of programming languages The Computer Language Benchmarks Game is a collection of 429 programs, consisting of 13 benchmark reimplemented across 33 programming languages. It is a fantastic resource if you are trying to compare programming languages quantitatively. Which, oddly, very few people seems to be interested in doing. The Benchmark Game spends a lot of efforts justifying itself against claims that the benchmarks are always flawed and that the whole exercise is pointless. I don't think it is. In fact, I've found that The Game is remarkably effective at predicting which forum hosts programmers annoyed at the slowness of their language, and that's good enough for me.

The History of C++ Programming Language - Authentic Society Notes on the difference between C an C++ You may hear from time to time that the C++ programming language is a superset of the C language. In C++, you can do almost everything you can do in C, with the exception of just a small number of things that may be considered specification details. Nonetheless, C and C++ are two different languages. Holding a Program in One's Head August 2007 A good programmer working intensively on his own code can hold it in his mind the way a mathematician holds a problem he's working on. Mathematicians don't answer questions by working them out on paper the way schoolchildren are taught to. They do more in their heads: they try to understand a problem space well enough that they can walk around it the way you can walk around the memory of the house you grew up in. At its best programming is the same.

Up and Down the Ladder of Abstraction In real life, you would never use a ladder that only let you go up. Likewise, when creating abstractions, stepping down is as important as stepping up. Here, we take the abstraction from the previous section, and overlay a concrete representation on top of it. That is, we draw the trajectory that represents all time, but we also draw the car at some particular time.

online computing dictionary online computing dictionary dictionary help programming language The History of Programming Languages For 50 years, computer programmers have been writing code. New technologies continue to emerge, develop, and mature at a rapid pace. Now there are more than 2,500 documented programming languages! O'Reilly has produced a poster called History of Programming Languages (PDF: 701K), which plots over 50 programming languages on a multi-layered, color-coded timeline. How It Started We first saw the "History of Programming Languages" diagram, created by Éric Lévénez, while visiting our French office.
