FORTRAN " In 1954, Language FORTRAN was invented at IBM by a team led by John Backus; it was the first widely used high level general purpose programing language to have a functional implementation, as opposed to just a design on paper.


Congratulations this is your 2222 post. Martin Taylor.


 The first assembly language was developed in 1947 by Kathleen Booth for the ARC2 at Birkbeck, University of London. Prior to this software was written in actual machine code and entered into the program memory using switches or jump wires and connectors. Assembly language is still used today. FORTRAN was written in assembly language.


During a nine-month period in 1842–1843, Ada Lovelace translated the memoir of Italian mathematician, Luigi Menabrea about Charles Babbage's newest proposed machine, the Analytical Engine.the first programming language was called ‘BINARY’ it was a just a mixture of two numbers (0 and 1)so,aquick answer will be that coding was made by ada lovelace and luigi menabrea for charles babbage’s computer invention. - Saksham Gupta (Quora) The first high-level programming language was Plankalkül, created by Konrad Zuse between 1942 and 1945[1]. The first high-level language to have an associated compiler, was created by Corrado Böhm in 1951, for his PhD thesis. The first commercially available language was FORTRAN (FORmula TRANslation); developed in 1956 (first manual appeared in 1956, but first developed in 1954) by John Backus, a worker at IBM. - Wikipedia I Personally think "Binary" should be considered first but officialy (according to Wikipedia) it is Plankalkül and Commecrially would be FORTRAN.


Binary is not a programming language it's a number system.


The first assembler was written by Kathleen Booth in 1947, a bit before the first personal computer.


And what about Assembly programming language? Was born with first personal pc?


it was * FORTRAN*


fortran was the 1st prohraming language


FORTRAN, I believe. Lemme research and tell ya more ^^


@Ar Sajib. HTML isn't even a programming language it's a markup language. Furthermore, HTML didn't appear until 1993 and I started programming in 1980.



@Kyle Gillingham. The concept of algorithm has existed for centuries and the use of the concept can be ascribed to Greek mathematicians, e.g. the sieve of Eratosthenes and Euclid's algorithm; the term algorithm itself derives from the 9th Century mathematician Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al'Khwārizmī, latinized 'Algoritmi'.


good question


*cries in the corner* *thinks~lotta shit to learn kiddo*


html is the first programing language


Hello. . ..I think html..


C is the first and the basic programming language. All non Web languages based on c but some little changes happens😉😉😀


@Ujjwal Kumar. BASIC appeared in 1964 and C appeared in 1972. The first electronic computers appeared in the 1940s. So what makes you think BASIC and C were the first programming languages?


Everything was manually coded without algorythms.
