Top programmers of all time in the world
Being a technology enthusiastic you must be aware of the programmings. Yes ! the bunch of codes on internet today, which executes just on your one click. Today’s world is technology driven. There is a term programmer, who writes machine level codes which is understood by the computer. So it will be a worth reading about the best programmers in the world. Yes, we know many programmers but, there are some top programmers also who wrote code and world is owed by them today. Let’s start reading more about them without spending more time :-
