Evolution of Computer Languages [infographic]

Oh how I miss the days of COBOL, and BASIC programming…NOT !!!

However, our good friends over at Rackspace have put together a nifty infographic showing the evolution of programming languages; way back in the late 50’s with Fortran up to 2005 with Ruby on Rails.

Wait, Ruby on Rails? For all my diehard programmers and techies – you are correct, Ruby on Rails is not a programming language, but in fact a framework. I am not the only one that is pointing that out – on the Rackspace blog they’re getting a few poignant comments about that.
