language, history (Or "Plankalkuel" if you don't have
umlauts). The first programming language, designed by KonradZuse, ca. 1945. Zuse wrote "Rechenplan allgemeiner Struktur"
in 1944 which developed into Plankalkul. Plankalkul included

Zuse wrote Plankalkul for his Z3 computer (finished before
1945) and implemented it on there as well. Much of his work
may have been either lost or confiscated in the aftermath of
World War II.
