What (programming) languages are represented?
« on: June 19, 2009, 05:11:25 PM »
I know we have a country thread, an introduction thread, and a couple of other threads about demographics, but I was wondering what people use to program- just idle curiousity.

Personally, I use Delphi 7 and 2006 (toying with the idea of getting 2009), C# (WinForms and WebForms) 2.0 and 3.5 Framework, and still have a bit of left over classic ASP out there (using a combination of JavaScript and VBScript).  I've been toying with the idea of learning Ruby or Perl or even PHP, but keeping up with the tech I know is exhausting enough.  I'm also thinking about getting into AIR or Silverlight, but haven't decided which yet.

start:
10 input "Enter your name: ", name1
20 print "Hahahaha, " & name1 & "!!!! You entered your name into a basica program. Hahahahahah!"
30 goto start
35 REM This end statement is never reached.
40 end

I code mostly in C++ and PHP, though i've dabbled with almost every computer language.

In a past job, I wrote C and Java (not Javascript) code along with Oracle Forms code.  These days, I do almost everything in AutoHotkey along with Perl and PHP when needed.  Other languages that I've written viable code in include VB/VBS, Python, and Ruby.

Primarily C++ for me too. Matlab almost exclusively for my college work however. Dabbled with Ruby for a good while, eventually decided I just really didn't like it. No flame war, it was purely a personality conflict, on a technical level I had no issues with it.

Want to get into a very different language to broaden my understanding of different ways of doing things. Functional languages seem like a good choice. Haskell caught my eye but for some reason I'm more drawn to Scheme.

Not to dis Euphoria, in fact it looks very interesting but this is a funny feature to advertise these days

"You can create programs that use the full multi-megabyte memory of your computer, and a swap file is automatically used when a program needs more memory than exists on your machine."

It's a great feature... when running on DOS. :-]

Personally, i use a load of different languages for a load of different situations...

Web: PHP, HTML, CSS & Javascript(I use Javascript a lot in website modding[GreaseMonkey, etc]).
Console Apps: Java. Have used Pascal&Delphi(7), but hated it(was a school project).
GUI Apps: Java for long-term, larger projects, AutoHotkey for throwaways/smaller things.

C/C++ (wxWidgets), PHP/XHTML/JS, C# (Mono) and Perl are probably my favorites, but I get my kicks leaning new languages, so I tend to dabble a lot.

I primarily use C, C++. Perl, and assembly language (look f0dder, I got it right!), though I have used a lot of other languages over the years :).

Has anyone used AIR or Silverlight?  Can anyone comment on the language structure?

AIR is (I think) a way of packaging your actionScript code. ActionScript is close to javascript, but with strong typing and better OO features.

I do R, python, ruby, perl, ActionScript. Never realized the list would be this long. Dabbling with many others. Need to learn java seriously, but I'm afraid it'd be a huge effort for a language that people critisize so much and, quite honestly, looks like crap and needs humongous IDEs.

People overcomplicate Java. I thought it was a lot more complicated than it is, my advice is this; Sun's tutorials aren't that good. Especially if you're not a first-time programmer. I bought Java in a Nutshell by O'Reilly and the depth to which it covers Java is brilliant. The lack of a "an object is like a real life object" sort of childish talk is also a big plus (i found Sun's tutorials to be very condescending).

Also, doesn't need an IDE, IDEs just speed up basic tasks... With java all you need is JDK, JRE and a text editor. As for the lexical style, it's got a C-Style syntax, but is based around OO.

The Universities i've applied to all teach Java throughout the course so i decided to learn it before hand to make things go more smoothly, so i saw it as something that HAD to happen at some point anyway.

Flash, Actionscript or HTML and JavaScript - but the explanations don't show how straightforward the interface to the runtime SDK is.

For scripts: python, shell, dos batch
For web: php, javascript, html.

Just to add a slightly ocbscure scripting language, I spent a couple of years writing IBM JCL.

It was the ultimate in copy and paste languages as you had to find someone in a beard wearing sandals if you needed anything new  ;D

Now I dabble with Python and C#.

And those that dabble with Python and C# wear sandals and are covered in tattoos. :)
