NH Honors BASIC Language

Technology 0 Comments 06/17/2019  

New Hampshire has installed what appears to be the first historical highway marker honoring computer programming, according to the Concord Monitor. The new sign honors BASIC, Beginner’s All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code, a programming language that was invented at Dartmouth College in 1964.

The sign itself is located on New Hampshire Route 120 — a short distance away from the college and BASIC’s creation.
