What is the level of abstraction in a programming language?

Abstraction: Specificity, what is going on behind the layers? How is EVERYTHING defined?

How do computers work tho?

Research on Programming Languages:

Let's take a look at some different programming languages. Pick one and do a quick research on it:

Think about the following questions:

  1. When was it made? (Why?)
  2. What is it primarily used for?
  3. On a scale of 1 - 10, rank the “abstraction” of the programming language--how difficult or complex does it look? ie:
    1. NetLogo is a "8" in terms of abstraction.
