The London Underground map was designed in 1931 by electrical draughtsman Harry Beck. Since then, many people have recreated the iconic design, some sticking exactly to the original concept, others putting their own twist on it.
To put things into context, these programming languages are set up primarily for the styling of web pages, so using them to create an illustration such as this takes a huge amount of time, skill and patience.
