Abstract

In the beginning "programs" were patterns of bits that commanded the execution of individual machines. As machines evolved in complexity - languages evolved, starting with a variety of assembly languages and growing to encompass higher levels of abstraction. Over the years - somewhat surprisingly - programmers evolved from engineers at the pinnacle of their profession with many years of experience to individuals not yet 10 years old giving evidence that programming does not necessarily require a formal education. This panel will bring together a diverse set of industry and academic professionals to discuss the future of programming languages and programmers.
