First programming languages were created with bits on a special machine (known as first computers) where every character was registered as a sequence of 8bits or a byte, like information nowadays. In this mode appeared first calculators, programming languages like ALGOL, COBOL, FORTRAN, later Pascal, C etc. Their functionality was minimal, as all was based on circuits (comaparators for if statement and so on).
