50th Anniversary of Algol 60

August 3, 2010

Last week I gave a talk about Algol 60’s 50th anniversary to the South Australian Branch of the Australian Computer Society.

Leading up to the talk, I found it difficult to stop reading. There’s so much historical material available, especially online, not to mention the several programming language related books on my bookshelf that had not been consulted for several years.

Anyway, here are the slides as pptx, ppt, and PDF.
