History of Programming Languages

I thought that this was an interesting item. It’s the history of programming languages back to the mid-50s. There are a few things that I saw that were interesting – such as the fact that Fortran will be 50 this November and is the ancestor to a number of programming languages. There were a few inaccuracies, such as the fact that they skipped from VB 1.0 to VB 6.0 and completely missed all of the releases between.




Oh well, it’s an interesting thing anyways…
