how programming languages got their names: y @TheStrangeRoots How programming languages got their names Bash Clojure The creator wanted to include the letter 'c' (C#), 'I (Lisp) and 'j' (Java) and liked that it was a pun on 'closure! The word 'closure, the act of closing, comes from the Latin 'clausūra' stemming from' clauděre' which means 'to shut or close! Bash is an acronym for Bourne-again Shell, a pun on the Bourne Shell - named after creator Stephen Bourne - being "born again". 'Bash' is also a verb meaning 'to strike with a heavy blow', possibly from the Danish 'baske' meaning 'to beat, strike! Quite simply C got its name because it was preceded by a programming language called B.C spawned its own children including C++ and C#.It is the third letter in the English alphabet and was originally identical to the Greek letter 'Gamma', Java Go Elixir The name Java was the result of a highly- caffeinated brainstorming session. Java, or 'Jawa' in Indonesian, is the name of a large island in Indonesia that produces strong, dark and sweet coffee. It has been a slang term for coffee in the United States since the 1800s. One of the Google developers said the name Go, sometime referred to as Golang, was chosen because it was 'short and easy to type' The word 'go, meaning 'to travel or go somewhere' stems from the Old High German 'gan' (to go). The word 'elixir', meaning a potion or essence that prolongs life or preserves something, stems from the Arabic 'al-ikst' via the late Greek 'xerion', a powder for drying wounds. Appeared in Middle English from the 14th century. Java JavaScript Kotlin Perl Originally named Mocha, a type of fine quality coffee, it was later renamed JavaScript, combining Java, US slang for coffee, + 'Script, 'something that is written' from the Latin 'scriptum, 'a set of written words or writing. Inspired by Java, it was named after Kotlin Island in Russia. Originally called Kettusaari by the Finns ('fox island') and Ketlingen by the Swedes, (maybe stemming from 'kettel' meaning 'cauldron'). After Russia won control of the island in 1703 it was Initially named Pearl, the alternative spelling was adopted as the name was already taken. It comes from the Middle French 'perle 'meaning 'bead' or 'something valuable' and the Latin 'perna' meaning 'leg, also a mollusc shaped like a leg of mutton. JS renamed 'Kotling' then 'Kotlin. PHP Python Ris named partly after the first names of the first two R authors (Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman) and partly as a play on the name of S, itss parent langauge. It is the 18th letter in the alphabet and derives from the Greek letter 'Rho' php Originally known as Personal Home Page Construction Kit, this was later shortened to just PHP (an acronym for Personal Home Page). It is now accepted as the initials for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. Creator Guido van Rossum named Python after TV comedy Monty Python's Flying Circus. The word 'python' comes from the ancient Greek 'Puthón, the name of a huge serpent killed by the god Apollo. Later adopted as a generic term for non- poisonous snakes that constrict their prey. Ruby Scala Rust Influenced by Perl, the developer chose a colleague's birthstone which followed it in the monthly sequence (June is Pearl, Ruby is July). Ruby comes from the Old French 'rubi', a 'reddish precious stone', and the Latin 'rubeus, 'red'. Rust's name comes from a fungus that is robust, distributed, and parallel. It is also a substring of robust. Rust, also the reddish coating formed on oxidized metal, stems from the German 'rost' and possibly the Indo-European base of 'red. Scala is a combination of the first letters of 'scalable' and 'language! It is also the Italian word for 'stairway', as it helps users to ascend to a better language. The logo is also an abstraction of a staircase or steps. SQL Swift TypeScript SQL Originating from the shortcomings of JavaScript, hence the similarility of the name. Its name combines 'Type', meaning a kind or class (from the Greek 'tuptein' 'to strike'), with 'Script, 'something that is written' from the Latin 'scriptum'. First called "Structured English Query Language" (SEQUEL), pronounced "sequel", it was a pun that it was the sequel to QUEL. It was later shortened to SQL. The word 'sequel' stems from the Latin 'sequela' from 'sequr' meaning 'to follow. The word 'swift' means 'moving with great speed or velocity' and can be traced back to the prehistoric 'swipt' meaning to 'move in a sweeping manner'. The swallow-like bird became known as a swift from the 17th century and is used as the language's logo. TS how programming languages got their names

earthstory: Meet the yeti crab, a creature so unusual that a whole new biological family had to be created to classify it.It was found along the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge, 1,500 kilometres south of Easter Island at a depth of 2,200 metres living on hydrothermal vents. As a result of analysis based on morphology and molecular data, the organism was deemed to form a new biological family (Kiwaidae). But, a lot else remains an enigma and much more is to be discovered. We do know that yeti crabs lack pigmentation in the eye and are hence thought to be blind. Also of interest, their fluffy pincers have been discovered to contain filamentous bacteria which may be involved in a chemosynthetic relationship with the organism. It is suggested that these bacteria may detoxify some of the poisonous minerals emanating from the hydrothermal vents.-JeanPhotograph by Ifremer A.

If you have African DNA and a black parent then you are black period. U commenting on his blackness means nothing because his hair strands say black. This whole thread is you justifying how he isn't black when you could be using your energy somewhere else. No matter what you say he's perceived as black and has a black parent so he's black.

"Chains & grills" comment was supposed to be in poor taste 1: this is the stereotype perpetuated by societal remnants of archaic colonial- thinking. There is no set "book- cover" with which to judge the African diaspora & their descendants 2: @bigbrotherzook 's comments shit on & divide members of the community much like the "colonial masters" would want. THE CYCLE PERPETUATES Prove my Blackness? it's Very reminiscent of Trump's obsession with Obama's Birth certificate, no? clear something up for you: I AM a Black child, raised by a Latina Mother, educated in a VERY white society. Always one of 5 "black kids" in all of my schools. Seen as black by their community, seen as white in my own cause I didn't "act black", had lighter pigmentation & didn't do the dance the colonial masters would have wanted. For refusing to perpetuate poisonous ideologies & archaic beliefs. Call me biracial by all means, it's really no sweat off my back - imma do me, be me & you can call me whatever helps you sleep better. What I have qualms with is your divisive mentality perpetuating the problem. & please don't ever disrespect a woman not even in the comments Not only is that shitty as a Man...but it perpetuates the "black men ain't shit" narrative. 4d 94 likes Reply ambrosechance:
