“Niklaus Wirth said Algorithms + Data Structures = Programs. But programs are more than that. They are ubiquitous in modern life, but only a tiny minority of the population know how to program. Programmers, coders or developers are therefore seen as the most rarefied of individuals – disconnected from society yet with enormous influence and power.

This lecture examines what programming is, who invented it, and how it is changing to better represent the needs of modern society.

A lecture by Richard Harvey

The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:
