Programming languages' evolution

It took decades for programming languages to evolve as well as for the paradigm shifts to happen.

Currently, young programmers need to really jump over decades when learning one language per years (not decades anymore) before they start their programming career (where you may learn different languages even faster if you want to survive on the market).

What a paradigm shift must be happening in their minds within just few years!

Mood: Impressed after reading first chapters of a book on programming languages and after watching a couple of Standford University video lectures on Computer Science.
