This page lists notable language developers only. For all APL dialects including those without notable developers, see timeline of APL dialects. To choose a dialect for use today, consider running APL.

A language developer is an organization or individual that develops and distributes a programming language. This includes vendors, which are companies that sell APL implementations, as well as developers of free implementations. In the mainframe era it was common for hardware vendors to create APL implementations in machine code for their particular architecture. Developers active today use portable languages in order to support multiple architectures.
