A programming language is an artificial language designed to express computations that can be performed by a machine. **Please note:** As is the case elsewhere on Stack Overflow, resource and tutorial recommendation requests, requests for lists of things ("which languages have this feature..."), and excessively opinion-based ("what's the best...") questions are off topic.

Programming language based on the one-liners of Arnold Schwarzenegger


Let’s make stacker, a pro­gram­ming lan­guage that imple­ments a stack-based cal­cu­la­tor.


There are about six major conceptualizations of memory that dominate today’s programming. Three of them derive from the three most historically important programming languages of the 1950s — COBOL, LISP, and FORTRAN — and the other three derive from the three historically important data storage systems: magnetic tape, Unix-style hierarchical filesystems, and relational databases.


I was reading yet another blog post titled “Why our team moved from to " (I forgot which one) and I started wondering if you can generalize it a bit. Is it possible to generate a N * N contingency table of moving from language X to language Y?


I don’t know about you, but nothing gets me going in the morning quite like a good old fashioned programming language rant. It stirs the blood to see someone skewer one of those “blub” languages the plebians use, muddling through their day with it between furtive visits to StackOverflow.
