Code For Thought: Hello Fortran!

Posted by d.barclay on 5 September 2023 - 12:00pm

Despite the fact that Fortran has been around since the 1950s, it remains a very relevant programming language today and has an active community of keen engineers. In this latest episode of Code For Thought SSI Fellow Peter Schmidt discusses the origins of Fortran, how to deal with legacy (Fortran 77), how the language evolved and the modern day use cases of Fortran. In the course of the episode, you'll hear from Thomas Clune (NASA, US), Wim Vanderbauwhede (Uni. Glasgow, UK), Milan Curcic (Uni. of Miami, US) and Ondrej Certik (GSI Technologies, US).
