Hello, world! Programs are usually written to make the text “Hello, world!” appear on a computer screen. This is also a basic sanity check for an installation of a new programming language. The first Hello World program appeared in chapter 1.1 of the first edition of Kernighan & Ritchie’s original book about C, ‘The C Programming Language’, in 1978. This is considered to be the first ever “Hello World!” program.
Today I have compiled a list of ten programming languages with their application domains and little historic background. Also I have mentioned the names of the developers of these languages along with their little biography. I hope you will find this article quite useful. The list is developed by researching through language websites, developers’ biographies and other related search engines. These programming languages include C and C++ programming language, Java, Pascal, Python, Basic programming language, COBOL, FORTRAN, Lisp, Perl, R, Swift and Go programming language. There are many other languages out there and covering all of the is out of scope of this article.
