Hundreds of programming languages ​​have been discovered since 1945. In the beginning, writing programs for computers to solve problems using machine language was extremely difficult, time-consuming, and limited in scope. But today's computers are artificially intelligent. That means people don't have to memorize thousands of instructions or commands to solve problems with computers, they don't have to follow specific grammar. Nowadays computers can also recognize human speech and can solve problems according to instructions.

In the development of computers as well as programming languages, different types of programming languages ​​have been developed, compressed, changed, and expanded at different times or stages. The emergence of today's simple, efficient and universal programming languages ​​has gone beyond 5 stages (Generation). The stages are happening

1st Generation or Machine Language-1945

This is directly the language of the machine. You have to command the machine with binary 0 and 1. The machine language is called the first generation language (1st generation language) Electrical Signal and ON-OFF represents Binary 0 or 1 by state, converts various instructions into opcodes, and programming is called first stage programming language. It is also called low-level language

2nd Generation-1950

Assembly language. It is also the language of machines, but it is not a direct machine language. By converting it into machine code, the machine has to understand the assembly language as the second generation language. When a program is designed using Binary opcode represented by a simple symbol as an instruction, it is called a 2nd Generation of Programming Languages.
