…and the rest, as they say, is history – part 2

The name D is, keeping in tune with the recursive nature of things, a reference to a feature of D itself – message passing. Message passing was by no means something invented by C or in D. It was from an older language E, created in Oslo.

E is considered the first true language that implemented the concept “F“. F is one of the most commonly used paradigms today, having outlasted/outpopularized almost every other paradigm. Interestingly enough, the first thoughts of F came up in the development of A!

Having completed that loop – the question is simple. Identify D through F for 1 point.

Laaate post is not that late ;) Almost made it on time.

…and the rest, as they say, is history – part 1

Loooong question with much editorializing shall ensue:

A was invented by B at MIT in 1958.  One interesting, almost core, feature of A, is its intensely recursive nature. This recursion was to such an extreme that a complete interpreter for A was written in A in “about a page” of code!

Fast forward to 1972. The setting is, of course, Xerox PARC. C and ‘Dan’ were in discussion about powerful programming languages. C, inspired by the one-page nature of A, claimed that he could define the “most powerful language in the world” in a page of code. ‘Dan’ bet him on it, and C eventually did come up with the language D.

Laaate post is continued in the next one.

Identify A, B and C for 1 point.
