Happy birthday BASIC!

Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of the BASIC programming language!

Happy birthday BASIC!

BASIC is the language that many started their adventures in scientific computing with and the current generation of Data Scientists owe it quite a lot of respect. Dartmouth college and the hall where the very first BASIC code was run are holding a series of celebrations to mark this special anniversary, many of which can be viewed online, and have put together a Docco on the history and impact of the language.
