A brief and incomplete history of programming languages
Andrea Magnorsky



Why do programming languages look the way they do today? How did it all started? In this talk we will go over a brief history of programming languages, from the very early days. We will go over greatest hits from Hilbert, Turing, Church, Hopper and more.


I really enjoy finding different ways to write code, sometimes for performance, other times for succinctness, sometimes, just because you can, there is no better way to learn than trying.

When I am not working I tend to play with Haskell or other languages or cats

Conferences and meetups are a great way to learn more, so I try to help when I can to make them happen. For that reason I co-organise Functional Kats and GameCraft. I also speak at local and international conferences like CodeMesh, Progressive.Net, ProF#, Lambda Days and many more.
