What after Pascal? Well … Scala!

In 1970’s and 1980’s, Pascal was the programming language most commonly used to teach the basics of programming. Pascal was not just an “academic” language, it was also used for writing system software (and even entire operating systems). However, the programming language C (which is Pascal’s “peer”) has gradually pushed out Pascal from both areas (not completely). To teach the basics of programming, the most commonly used languages are C / C ++, somewhat less Java.
