Hello World! Project

The phrase "hello, world" is a popular computer program that outputs "hello, world" on a device display. It is meant to be a simple teaching aid for learning a new language, because coders with little or no experience can execute "Hello World" both easily and correctly. Above all, "hello world" is simple. Such simplicity allows it to be used to quickly compare syntax differences between various programming languages or how a given programming language works, especially in terms of structure and syntax.

The first "hello world" appeared in 1988 in "The C programming Language" by Kernighan and Ritchie the authors wrote:

The only way to learn a new programming language is by writing programs in it. The first program to write is the same for all languages:

Print the words

hello, world

This is a big hurdle; to leap over it you have to be able to create the program text somewhere, compile it successfully, load it, run it, and find out where your output went. With these mechanical details mastered, everything else is comparatively easy.

In C, the program to print "hello, world" is

#include <stdio.h>
printf("hello, world\n");

My Variations of "Hello, World!"

I created a series that output "hello, world" in various languages (or technologies) I am familiar with. I tried to approach their design in an interesting or unique way, or one that demonstrates my knowledge, as opposed to efficient, optimized code.
