Why do we need so many programming languages? Why cant we use just one universal language for everything?
the other day I googled " total number of programming languages" and I found out it's around 700 - and counting . So am just curious and want to know how we ended up having so many language. I am computer illiterate. Please do illuminate me.
It is like human languages. Some in english some in russian some in chinese.... And who can force all the people in the world to talk only in one lang? Elon Musk? Volandemort?
I asked my self the some question many times but i found that as that we have to understand the history of computer developpment and the birthday of programming language from low level that deal only with 0 and 1 to hight level semi-understandable by humains.Then i understand why there are so many langs.
