Bricklin and Bob Frankston invented VisiCalc. Bricklin was studying for his Master of Business Administration degree at Harvard Business School when he joined up with Frankston to help him write the programming for his new electronic spreadsheet. The two started their own company, Software Arts Inc., to develop their product.

VisiCalc (for "visible calculator") was the first spreadsheet computer program for personal computers, originally released for the Apple II by VisiCorp. It is often considered the application that turned the microcomputer from a hobby for computer enthusiasts into a serious business tool, prompting IBM to introduce the IBM PC two years later.

[2]Developer(s): Software Arts. If you think programming now is difficult, VisiCalc was written in assembly language for an Apple II.

Here are a few words from this web page that describe this code: VisiCalc was written in assembly language | VisiCalc is the first spreadsheet software program. It was simple to use and enabled sorting and storage of data in tabular rows and columns.

I was reading your "A Brief History of Spreadsheets" and thought you might want to include the fact that Visicalc was also available on the HP85 and 87 in the early 80's. I found it more useful than the Apple version because it had graph plotting and statistical analysis in the same package.
