AlanKay associates "high level" programming languages with LateBinding

Quora Answer : Which features should any high-level programming language offer?

Jan 13, 2015

It should be be possible to describe complex behaviours simply and elegantly. With little discussion of the underlying machine.

I think that's pretty much all you can say, really.

There's too much diversity of approaches and ideals to give more specific features. Prolog is not Haskell is not Scheme is not Julia. They are all high-level languages, but there are no features which every one of them definitively has to have.
