    Evolution of programming is great concept to understand starting and updates of programming language. The new programming makes some effective changes in old programming and makes it powerful. Your given details are really good for basic knowledge of programming.

    This is such a great idea so that people would understand what are the certain improvements programming did for their daily living. The inforgraphic chart is very well detailed, all the information regarding the programming topic is indicated there. Thanks for sharing another informational idea that can help people get knowledgeable concepts.

    Micro-evolution is a change in allele frequency in a population because the allele aids in the reproductive success of those individuals that carry it over the individuals that carry a competing allele.

    I recall a class from back in the early 80’s, learning a simplified version of C+. I remember toting around boxes of punched cards. I was good with those punched cards – never dropped a box.

    I wasn’t aware that C language was invented in the year 1969 and is taught as a basic programming languages in schools and colleges .The inforgraphic chart is very informative as its explains the evolution of programming language in depth.I love writing programs in javascript.

    1 excellent image speaks all .. Thanks God that programming is not that difficult as it use to be and now we have all the information on 1 single click. At times I wonder what we will have next in near future, people will just think and their App or website will be done .. haha 🙂

    I had no idea Pascal was created in the 60s! I remember being taught that at University in 1990 and thought it was really easy to understand, just wish I could learn javascript, it gives me a headache as soon as I read the first line of code!
