Written September 5, 2013 One of the oldest programming languages, the Fortran programming language known mainly for its strength in numeric and scientific computation, was developed in the 1950′s and first published in 1957 by IBM in San Jose California as the first known high level programming language. Fortran came about at a time where programmers only had the opportunity to create programs using assembly and machine code which came with several downfalls such as it was:

The ALGOL Programming Language-then and now

The ALGOL(Algorithmic Programming Language) developed in the mid 1950’ s with the aims of: Creating a a language for scientific computation.  A language that was machine independent.  A universally accepted Programming Language.  Being the first language that Addressed the issue of software portability. All these goalswere acheved by an international Committe in the late 1950s’ in a report entitled Algol58 followed by other reports etitled Algol60 and Algol68 respectively .
