Toward Modern Fortran Tooling and a Thriving Developer Community [article]

Milan Curcic, Ondřej Čertík, Brad Richardson, Sebastian Ehlert, Laurence Kedward, Arjen Markus, Ivan Pribec, Jérémie Vandenplas
2021 arXiv   pre-print
However, Fortran has not kept up with the modern software development practices and tooling in the internet era. As a consequence, the Fortran developer experience has diminished.  ...  To address this problem, an open source community has formed on GitHub in 2019 and began to work on the initial set of core tools: a standard library, a build system and package manager, and a community-curated  ...  Summary A new open source community called Fortran-lang was formed to address the lack of modern Fortran tooling such as a comprehensive standard library, a dedicated build system and package manager,  ...

The Next 7000 Programming Languages [chapter]

Robert Chatley, Alastair Donaldson, Alan Mycroft
2019 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Half-a-century on, we cast programming languages in a Darwinian 'tree of life' and explore languages, their features (genes) and language evolution from the viewpoint of 'survival of the fittest'.  ...  We investigate this thesis by exploring how various languages fared in the past, and then consider the divergence between the languages empirically used in 2017 and the language features one might have  ...  We are grateful to Sophia Drossopoulou, Stephen Kell, Tom Stuart, Joost-Pieter Katoen, Flemming Nielson and Bernhard Steffen for their useful feedback on an earlier draft of this work.  ...

On the preparation of computer science professionals in academic institutions

J. A. Archibald, M. Katzper
1974 Proceedings of the May 6-10, 1974, national computer conference and exposition on - AFIPS '74  
Other causes are the specific failure of industry to make its needs known to academic institutions and the general lack of communication between these communities.  ...  Re-ordering of priorities within undergraduate programs and an application-oriented undergraduate program are presented as a means of solving part of the problem.  ...  Indeed, such development is the vitality of a thriving discipline. Retention of theoretical emphasis in the graduate curricula should meet these needs.  ...

Tegawende F. Bissyande, Ferdian Thung, David Lo, Lingxiao Jiang, Laurent Reveillere
2013 2013 IEEE 37th Annual Computer Software and Applications Conference  
Unfortunately, there is a lack of large scale and comprehensive studies that examine the "popularity", "interoperability", and "impact" of various programming languages.  ...  Programming languages have been proposed even before the era of the modern computer.  ...  CONCLUSION AND FUTURE WORK Programming languages come and go. Only a few are adopted and thrive.  ...
