This article lists the age of All Programming Languages along with interesting points. Programming Languages did not start when you think like Python is older than Java. It all started from 1949.
Interesting points before we take a look at the complete list:
The first Programming Languages where developed in 1949 and this includes Machine Code and Assembly Programming Language.
Python is 4 years older than Java. Python was developed in 20th February 1991 and Java was developed in 23rd May 1995. As of 2021, Java is 26 years old and Python is 30 years old. The fact is Python came to limelight around 2010s while Java was on the spotlight from the beginning.
Python was ported to support Java 6 years before supporting C. Jython (Python support for Java) was released in 17th January 2001 and Cython (Python support for C) was released in 28th July 2007. This was Jython 20 years old and Cython 14 years old.
Bash was released 17 years after C. Bash was released in June 8, 1989 while C was released in 1972.
ArXiv was launched 2 years before HTML was launced. ArXiv is 30 years old but HTML is 28 years old. Did you get it?
