I have a very generic question: How was the very first programming labguage created from the binary machine code? I researched this for multiple hours but found no satisfactory result, just generalizations. I want to know how the very first electronic computer that ran the machine code only was used to create a symbolic language.
This may not be related to programming as such, but I am just very curious to discover how people managed to create tools that we use today from 0s and 1s - this is mind-blowing!
Any technical explanation is very welcome!
