Topic — The Last Programming Language

Abstract — For the last 50 years, we’ve been exploring language after language. Now many of the “new” languages are actually quite old. The latest fad is “functional programming”, which got its roots back in the 50s. Have we come full circle? Have we explored all the different kinds of languages? Is it time for us to finally decide on a single language for all software development? In this talk Uncle Bob walks through some of the history of programming languages, and then prognosticates on the future of languages.
