Wikipedia: Hello world program

The Hello World Collection: “Hello World” is the first program one usually writes when learning a new programming language. This collection includes 296 Hello World programs in many more-or-less well known programming languages, plus 47 human languages.

The Hello World Project.

How the way people code “Hello World” varies depending on their age and job.
