According to the vikingcodeschool, the 50’s were difficult to programmers. They need to create the development of the programs by hand. All these scripts were processed by machines and later on, they might check if the code was correct or not. With the time, de development of software change. The first programming language was IBM´s Fortan, released in 1957.
With the time, the Defense Department from the US released Cobol in 1962, it was used with business purposes.
Many things appear every day, maybe they aren’t new, but maybe these things are changing something. I think that nowadays software and programs are being used to transform, not to CREATE.
New things are coming, maybe not an innovative thing or product, but a productive and helpful tool.
