LANGUAGES AND CLASSIFICATION


There are hundreds of programming languages, many of them are similar. All languages have a same purpose e.g. Education, Science, Maths, Website and Fun. Some Languages have developed from other languages and have similar structure others allow you to code based on events, objects, or both. For these reasons it can be difficult for beginners to know how to classify a language. For example a simple problem is classifying humans. We could classify humans by; if they eat meat, can roll their tongue, what language they speak, their height, skin colour, religion etc.
