I have been slowly and painfully teaching myself CSS/HTML.

Same :/ luckily code academy is a good website for learning that

Give W3Schools a read some time too, some of the elitists would argue it sometimes does something a longer way than necessary but it's brilliant for teaching you new things.

In order of frequency of use/familiarity:


  • Verilog (work)
  • Python (work, game engine)
  • C++ (game engine)
  • C
  • Shellscript
  • Java (meh. sucks.)
  • 6502 ASM (NES games)
  • HTML
  • PHP

Other languages I hate that I've been forced against my sanity to use over the years include ocaml and prolog. I have many a four-lettered-word for ocaml.

Uhhhhhmmmmm... Python, Java, PHP, JavaScript, SQL, HTML, CSS, C/C++, C#, Elixir, Bash, MATLAB, R, Mathematica, JSP/JSTL, x86, and Haskell.

I think I have a problem. o.o;

Reminder: It really doesn't matter much to people what you already know, the point of programming is to solve problems with your expertise though design and co-ordination. If you are pious, open a church. But its down to personal preference, what you're doing and what the client/enterprise wants.

What I've done work with:
4Lang,
ArnoldC,
Lisp,
Ruby,
Haskell,
Go,
COBOL,
Perl,
C,
F# (waste of time),
Python (old python)
Ruby,
Rust

What I use these-days:
C#
Python3
Lua,
Java
Javascript (if you want to call it a language)
Ruby

Obviously I have knowledge of SQL databases and web development markups.

What do you think of LUA and Ruby?

How much difference is there between C++ and C#?

Ruby is a hipster language and Lua is like if python was influenced by java.

As for the C++ and C#. I dont know about C++. But C#/Java would be a better comparison. C# is what java should have been if it wasnt for the odd design choices somewhere, but it can be limited to windows machines, so it is not good for portability outside of web dev. C++ I hear can have problems because it uses a much older language design that cant be changed without breaking all software. The best way is to think of C, but with object-orientated design thrown into the mix.

Thank you so much. I didn't realize older versions of C did not have OOP. I've been on the fence about learning as I've been messing around with Unity and it has two language options: C# and Unityscript. I C# would be a more logical choice, since it can be used standalone as well with Unity.

I like that you listed ArnoldC, Now all you need to learn is Brainfuck :D

I can at least get away with pretending that I'm decent at BASIC, Java, and Python.

I develop Python professionally, though I also have experience in Java, C++, C#, Perl, ksh, Visual Basic, and enough Fortran to be able to read and modify code. Current project I'm working on for my job is to read in weather data and being able to track a hurricane by searching for the minimum pressure location, then following so we can predict is expected path out to a week.

Eh... I'm gonna just leave the top part of my CV here and see who STILL wants to go into this hellish field.

I'm gonna go into research but I need to get a degree first in order to make it anywhere in academia >.>

(been there, done that)

Ricky's CV said:
I have roughly nine years of experience in SQL using Oracle, MySQL, Postgres, and MS SQL, some NoSQL experience using MongoDB and 8 years using object oriented programming, mainly Java with a focus on Spring and Hibernate as a framework. I have also used Ruby/RoR to some extent. I have used Python trying out Django on an enthusiast level and used that and Perl to troubleshoot server-side scripts. I have been programming since I was seven. I have used Aspect-Oriented Programming. My favorite operating system is Linux. I have built responsive web applications including mobile, and have performed security testing and remediation. I have used SOAP, REST, JSON, XML, XSL, Xpath, XSLT, XSD, DTD, DOM, SAX and JAXB. Much of this was for mobile applications, including responsive mobile web applications. I have used cloud based deployment solutions such as AWS. I have used search services including ElasticSearch. I have a firm understanding of networking concepts, data structures and algorithms. I have a lot of experience utilizing third-party API's and delivering products to clients with strict deadlines based on product specifications from product management. I have experience troubleshooting hard-to-diagnose race conditions and enjoy this challenge. I also have a passion for learning new technologies and creating simple, elegant solutions to solve complex problems. I have used Javascript frameworks such as backbone.js as well as core JavaScript, jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile (for a mobile web service for an art site that I made). I have also used Dojo, Handlebars, and mustache. I have used MVC frameworks for most of the time I have been in web development (roughly 8 years). I have also worked with Ruby on Rails and Django, though the latter was just playing around. I have used HTML5, CSS3, Less and have worked on applications using a SAAS-based solution. I have experience taking in specifications with very intricate business requirements and turning them into solid solutions. I have used many custom API's since almost everything in Java is a third-party API. I have also used Apache Jmeter to help tune the JVM and look for memory leaks. I have used both Ant and Mvn. I have used SVN, Perforce and Git. I have done pair programming and TDD as a practice. I have experience setting up and configuring Apache, Tomcat, SQL distributions as well as LAMP stacks using PHP.

I haven't programmed much yet, per se — I'm having a little trouble setting up Xcode properly for what I'm doing, but that's another story… —; but I do know enough C++11/14 to be able to read it even though I have to give some templates some thought when looking through it, especially when tutorials and examples start delving into template meta-programming. I've mucked about in Ruby some, too, while making some contributions to Homebrew, and am thinking about writing some PHP for a MediaWiki extension as well. Other than that, I've also dabbled in bash scripting and raw HTML a tad, but haven't really done anything fancy with either language yet. I might also get into x86 and ARM (and possibly even PowerPC) assembly in the future if and when I need it while doing some XNU kernel hacking and making homebrew software for legacy Nintendo game consoles (I'd work with the newer ones, but they're almost completely locked down and I really don't want to brick my systems…)
 
What an interesting thread!
Myself, I am fluent with C, C++, Java, HaXe, x86 assembly (16, 32 and 64 bit, intel syntax), C#, and Actionscript 2.0/3.0. If we're including scripting and markup, scripting and data languages, you can also count JSON, XML, HTML, Python, Javascript and HXScript, GNU Linker script, Makefile, and my own language called Oak.
I've dabbled in Lisp, Rust, Basic, Haskel, and Ruby, Objective C, and ARM assembly enough to do more than hello world, and done a little bit of D and Go that I cannot remember well enough to print to the console. I've used COBOL and FORTRAN a little bit, but they are long gone to me. I guess i could also count BrainF***, but that's not really useful enough to do anything noteworthy :)
Edit: I guess if you count RobotC, that's another

I've been coding in Python in computer science for 6 weeks now. It's my first coding language. Soon, we'll be learning Arduino, which I heard is just C++ with a bunch of other stuff mixed in. My brother, to code his Arduino he owns, who doesn't know any code in any language, just copies and pastes code off the internet onto his Arduino and doesn't even try to learn. My friend knows Java, C#, some C++, and, as do I, a little bit of Lua.

Does pressing the restart button when it freezes up and swearing frantically at the funny blue screen count? That's the only one I know. Always got confused by computers fairly easily. Knowing a computer language seems harder to me than scaling Mount Kilimanjaro, in a bikini whilst playing the trombone.

I wanna have a computer like on Star Trek, where I just tell it what to, and it does it, and doesn't freeze up, or give any sass, or talk back, and make me go through pesky menus of settings. Ideally, I'd just be able to explain what I wanted done, and Viola! It would be so.
