Programming is no doubt the next generation of technology. Drew creator of DropBox said “Programming is the closest thing we have to being Super Heros”. The list of the top 5 programming language and their inventors are here. Their images have been included, also, some important information about them have been noted. Here is the list.
1. Java – James Gosling
Dr. James Arthur Gosling invented Java, one of the most popular and successful programming language. From my research, I learned that Java was earlier supported and later developed by Sun Microsystem before Oracle took over. Java is still a successful programming language till date.
3. C++ – Bjarne Stroustrup
Bjarne Stroustrup; is well known for his invention and development in C++ programming language. C++ is a higher language than C when C language was very popular. C++ is still the most used programming language and not that easy to use.
4. Python – Guido van Rossum
Python is a programming language used more in software development, web designing, app developing, information security and many more! This makes code very easy to read and understand. Python is designed by Guido van Rossum of CWI. Python has successfully replaced C and Java, unlike the old generation.
e.g of websites using python; Google, Yahoo! It will be nice to learn this language.
5. PHP – Rasmus Lerdorf
PHP (Personal Home Page) was originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1995 and it is being used in big companies like Facebook, Wikipedia, WordPress and Almost half of blogs and websites use this internet language.
PHP was ones a competitor to Microsoft’s Active Server Pages (ASP) server-side script engine. Now over 30 million Web sites and 2 million Web servers are currently using it. It’s a nice programming language!
Although there are numerous languages, but these few stand out because of their compatibility feature and relative simplicity. You can pick up any from the list to learn first. Did I miss anyone? Tell us your favorite via comment section
