Computer Languages 22 years on

Many moons ago in the late 1980s, right at the start of my interest in computers, I bought a book about computer languages. The book titled Computer Languages: A Guide for the Perplexed by Naomi S Baron inspired me to get into programming and eventually led me to program professionally (in the sense that somebody paid me 😄 .) What is interesting, 22 years on, is what has changed and perhaps just as interesting, what hasn’t changed.
