 for first generation language
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  first generation language
  
     Raw machine code.  When computers were first "programmed"
     from an input device, rather than by being rewired, they were
     fed input in the form of numbers, which they then interpreted
     as commands.  This was really low level, and a program
     fragment might look like "010307 010307".  Almost no one
     programs in machine language anymore, because translators are
     nearly trivial to write.
