How Programming Has Developed Over The Years

 

 

To follow how programming has developed over the years we have to travel back to 1954 and Fortran, the message was simply “Hello World! And yet, this started us off on the road to the internet.

 

It is strange although not totally unexpected how the term “Hello World” has been used by programmers over the years; in fact, it would be a disappointing not to have seen it on the Apple and other computers.

 

Now we are in 2012, are we expecting too much from the next generation of programming of course not, as the graphic by Services Angle shows, we have already come a very long way.
