In this lengthy but light-hearted article, InfoWorld's Peter Wayner traces nineteen "generations" of computer programmers. Beginning with the punch-card programmers of the 1960s, he traces the rise of various types of developers, documenting their programming language of choice and skillsets, as well as taking a humorous look at their favorite clothing, cars, music, etc.

For the record, his 19 generations include the following:

  1. Punch-card programmers
  2. Space Shuttle programmers
  3. Cray programmers
  4. Cobol programmers
  5. Basic programmers
  6. C programmers
  7. C++ programmers
  8. Objective-C programmers (first generation)
  9. Perl programmers
  10. PHP programmers
