Hello, World!

Posted August 9, 2017 · Share

One of the first things a programmer does when learning a new language is figure out how to print text on the screen. Most of the time, it’s the famous “Hello, World!” text.


#include <stdio.h>

main() {
	printf("Hello, World!\n");

This is the programming language C, from a 1974 Bell Laboratories book. See the Wikipedia article about Hello World.


So this is my hello to you. I hope you’ll stick around.
