Programming languages history

Posted by dariosantarelli on June 22, 2008

Here you can find an interesting diagram of programming languages history. Years go by, but surprisely you can see how apparently incompatible paths (OO and functional programming) are slowly fusing in time.  For about 50 years, computer programmers have been writing code. New technologies continue to emerge, develop, and mature. Now there are more than 2,500 documented programming languages!

Here a preview 😉


Moreover, O’Reilly has produced a poster called History of Programming Languages  which plots over 50 programming languages on a multi-layered, color-coded timeline.
