Hello World

Hello World, Really? Yeah… now that’s a title never used before as a initial start of something new. Well well….

First and foremost, welcome to the Pikado.se blog! This blog will intend to highlight some of our work, thoughts and best practice methods like “Which software to use to simplify your work?” or “How coffee optimises work flow”. But for now, let’s dig deeper into how “Hello World” phrase gained it’s popularity.

How “Hello World” started?

Brian Kernighan actually wrote the first “hello, world” program as part of the documentation for the BCPL programming language.

Kernighan first referenced ‘Hello World’ in the C Programming Language book’s predecessor: A Tutorial Introduction to the Programming Language B published in 1973.

"Hello, World!" program by Brian Kernighan (1978)

Hello World is basically a simple program that, when run, displays the same message. Such a program is very simple in most programming languages. It is used to illustrate the basic syntax of a programming language and that’s why this is often the first program written by people who are learning to code.

Here’s what the code looks like in some of the most popular programming languages currently in use.

Java

class HelloWorld {
public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println("Hello, world!");
}
}

C#

using System;
class Program
{
public static void Main(string[] args)
{
Console.WriteLine("Hello, world!");
}
}

Python

print("Hello, world!")

Ruby

puts "Hello, world!"

Scala

object HelloWorld extends App {
println("Hello, world!")
}

ASP.NET

Response.Write("Hello World!");

Lisp

(princ "Hello, world!")

Haskell

main = putStrLn "Hello, world!"

Go

package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
fmt.Println("Hello, world!")
}
