Languages In Programming And Tech Developments

Programming and tech are inseparable. Computer programming has come from a very primitive age to a very intelligent generation. With a look at the different generations of programming languages we see that programming has really undergone technological developments in a major way. There are currently five generations of computer programming languages.
First, we have the first generation languages. And they represent the very early, primitive computer languages that consisted entirely of 1’s and 0s, and this was the machine language which only the machine could comprehend. We then went to the second generation languages, which represent a set up from the first generation languages. They allowed the use of symbolic names instead of just numbers. These languages are also referred to as assembly languages, for the code is written in an assembly language which is converted to machine language.
For the software languages, they are used in creating executable programs and even the entire operating system. Some of the examples include: C, an advanced programming language used for software application development and creating operating systems for example, UNIX operating system. We also have Visual basic a language based on the basic language, and is used in creating windows applications. Finally we have C++ which is like C, but its more object oriented. Its main function is graphical application development.
