Other than my mother tongue and English, Fortran (Formula Translation) was the third “language” I learnt; and it’s a computer language. A language that changed the world of computing.
It was released back in 1957 by the IBM team led by the Father of Fortran, John W. Backus. He died on Saturday at his home.
Good God it was long time ago … I will miss all the punch card days. Thank you John Backus, may you rest in peace.
