What is the name of the first spreadsheet software program?

Category: Software


In 1979, while attending Harvard Business School, Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston help create the first spreadsheet application known as VisiCalc. It initially ran on the Apple II computer and was the foundation for software programs like Lotus 123 and Excel.

“VisiCalc took 20 hours of work per week for some people and turned it out in 15 minutes and let them become much more creative.” – Dan Bricklin
