Programming Languages: History, Python and Elixir

Programming languages have come a long way since the creation of Fortran in 1954. It’s fascinating to see how each language has evolved to suit its needs and time. 

History of the programming language 

  • The first programming language to be created was called Fortran. It was developed for the IBM 701 and released in 1954.
  • One of the next languages, ALGOL, became a popular language because it introduced many features that were never seen before. An example is parameters which allow programmers to specify input values instead of hardcoding them into the code itself. 
  • By 1968 BASIC had been developed so people without any knowledge about coding could program their own computer applications by using commands like “PRINT” or “IF” statements – this soon led to an explosion in popularity as more than one billion people tried out these new computers with BASIC installed on them over time. But even though BASIC was the first programming language for beginners, it had its limitations and lacked features like data structures. In addition to this, other languages were gaining popularity because they offered more flexibility in terms of speed of execution as well as memory usage. 
  • By 1991 C++ came out but did not immediately become popular – up until 1995 when Microsoft released their Windows operating system which also happened to come with C++ preinstalled on it! This gave a huge boost to the adoption rate which led to an increase in programmers using the language. 
  • Python is one of those most used languages today and has been around since 1989. It’s often cited as being easy enough for non-programmers while still giving them access to all sorts of power. 
  • Elixir is another popular language because it’s built with a strong focus on functional programming. It also has an extremely productive coding environment which makes writing code more enjoyable and efficient.

One of the most popular languages today is Python, and it’s also one of the easiest to get started with because it has large quantities of tutorials and libraries for new programmers. However, Python cannot be used in conjunction with elixir. Instead, you can use Elixir alongside Python without much conflict. Instead, you can use Elixir alongside Python without much conflict.

Elixir is a language built with a strong focus on functional programming. This can be overwhelming for beginners and newcomers to programming, leading to some difficulties in understanding the language as well as the syntax. It also runs slow when compared to other languages.

It has an easy syntax, which means you can write code without getting bogged down by complex grammar rules. And it runs fast – up to 20x faster than other languages like Ruby or Python! You’ll be able to build web applications in no time with this powerful tool.

However, there are situations where Elixir can have some performance problems – for example when it comes to longer calculations, including matrixes or some kind of optimization. This is because of the Garbage collector, which is a process that clears out memory. This process can dramatically slow down your application so sometimes you need to find alternative solutions for this problem – for example using the Erlang Runtime System (ERTS) instead of the default BEAM Virtual Machine.

For instance, let’s say you want to find the 12th Fibonacci number. Elixir can’t do this for you because it does not have predefined functions for mathematical operations. In this case it is best to use Pyret as your back-end instead of Python. This will allow you to do whatever mathematical calculations are needed without having to sacrifice speed or memory usage.
