Hello World Rebooted πŸ’‘

So, most of us try to remain skilled in more than one language...let's say possibly 4 to 5 languages and the first program we try to write in any language is none other than Hello World.

In search of how I can learn to write Hello World in as many language possible, I decided to search the web for various languages, but it is really a Herculian Task to search for as many as possible, but then Open-Source come handy. For the currently ongoing Hacktoberfest, I decided let's make newcomer's do it themselves. Created a repo with Hactoberfest tag, and BoomπŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯

In less than 24 hours, repo has 53 Hello Worlds(Yes, You heard it right) in differnet languages. Repo also conatins short information about every language. I know there are still plaenty of languages out there, but 53 by any meance is not a small number.

It will be great if you can contribute to the project by any of the following ways:

  1. You can improve code quality by adding comments to already available codes.
  2. You can add short langauge informations in README file.
  3. And yes, you can (and must 😎) add any new language you know.

This has been done a few times.

Hello World in Many Programming Languages

Perhaps what you could do differently is provide a basic program in every language and link to an online code sandbox.

Does CSS count? :P

body:after { content: "Hello, World!" }

I think it would make more sense to make your list of hello worlds only with with languages that YOU know. I know around 16 programming languages. So I could make a neat little "hello world" list but one which mean something actually.

I like this suggestion - you get an opportunity to contrast / compare different constructs in each language that can provide similar functionality, and pick out special features that make it awesome. It's a bit like a code golf challenge, do the same thing in the most: elegant / performant / insane ways.

I assume folks have met the 99 bottles website (1500 languages)?:
99-bottles-of-beer.net/

I provided one of the GNU Make implementations, which lasted about a week before it was improved upon :)

I think I've added a pull request. Never used GitHub before so this was a fantastic little project to learn with :)

possibly 4 to 5 languages

I reached 12 (plus some application script languages). I won! - And I would say I'm good with three of them. Yet!
