Summary

Programming Revolutionaries interviews the legendary inventors of historic computer languages to derive lessons for programmers and future system designers.

Interviewees include: Adin D. Falkoff (APL); Aho, Weinberger, and Kernighan (AWK) (C#); Bjarne Stroustrup (C++); Charles H Moore (FORTH); Simon Peyton Jones (Haskell); James Gosling (Java); Robin Milner (ML); Larry Wall (Perl); Guido van Rossum (Python) (SQL); and, Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson, and James Rumbaugh (UML).
