Konrad Zuse built the first functioning, freely programmable, binary based computer, the Z1, in 1938; and the first fully automatic computer, the Z3, in 1941, which he installed in his parents' living room in Berlin. He made the first programming language, Plankalk├╝l, from 1942 to 1946. It was not published until 1972, and the first compiler for it was done in 2000. A Linux distribution, SuSE, is named partly in his honor.
