I just saw this thread. It's pretty cool that everyone's sharing their experiences with different languages. Here's some of my favorites:

 

C++ 

MySQL 

Verilog 

 

Definitely teaching myself other ones such as HTML/PHP and also C#.

Heya guys,

adding another introduction to the threat.

My name is Alex I'm 18 and a first year student in Computer Science here in Germany.

I started "coding" when I was 12 but that was more likely basic HTML and PHP.

When I was 15 I had Computer Science as a suject for the first time where I started learning Delphi (Object Pascal).

Actually I spent more time at that than anyone else so I was always ahead of the others as well as of my teacher so in the end I was the one teaching the subject (kinda ironic).

Sadly Delphi only compiles to Win32 and by now to Win64, OSX and some iOS platforms.

Starting with some Minecraft-modding just for fun I began learning Java which I unfortunatly almost forgot by now.

But since I need this and C++ for my studies I guess I'll relearn it.

I also restarted with python and PHP(incl. MySQL,HTML,CSS,JS etc) but I rarely use them (only if a friend who's a webdesigner needs some help from work overflow :D).

I also looked into C# but thats kinda the same as Delphi and Java together so there was no point in learning it.

And yeah just the basic stuff like Bash-scripts in linux or autoIt for windows shortcuts.

 

As for the OS I'm running Win7 and XP since I game on my machine a lot and my netbook has insufficient RAM for any linux distribution (tested that multiple times) and crashed a hackintosh installation after the first reboot :D

I like Linux a lot but just dont have any use for it for now except for my root-servers running debian 6 and ubuntu server 12.04.

On windows I use Notepad++ for almost everything except for webdesign things for which I got dreamweaver.

 

Kind regards,

Trek / Alex

I am 16-year-old boy from Finland and I'm in high school for the first year now. I have been programming for almost seven years now. I started with basic HTML and quite soon I started adding CSS for styling and Javascript for functionality. After a year or so PHP came in and for a few years all I did was web applications. Now for a few years I have been very keen on Java and especially Android. I have been building a lot of Android applications for my own use because there are some that I didn't find in Google Play. Now I'm working on two bigger projects, here's a peek in one of those:

It is for scheduling events like mute, wifi, bluetooth etc. It supports four languages at the moment, English, Finnish, Swedish and German. It's not available on Google Play yet, it is still in beta testing. If you necessarily want to beta test it, feel free to PM me with your Google Play account email address and I'll sent you a Google Play beta testers' download link :D

Im a CS major at CSU Dominguez Hills in California. Im main using C++ and Java for my programming. I prefer text editors on Linux(I like old school stuff haha) to program, however, I use IDEs on windows. CodeBlock++ and IntelliJ are favorite IDEs to use. 

 

Im working on some robotics with the raspberry pi, by interfacing with the GPIO pins. WiringPI is and excellent C/C++ library to use for this.

 

My raspberry pi doesnt want to read my usb lol.. so im going to post my code and retrieve it, im too lazy to fix my usb issue, plus I dont have a hub.

Hello everyone! im learning currently an undergrad student learning how to program! So far have dabbled in python, c++, and java but haven't really done anything too extreme. Got interested in programming my senior year in high school when i took a webpage class and liked it more than doing animation (was going to go for game art or animation at first). The most complex thing i have made would be a master mind game, probably really simple for most people who have some experience with programming, but since that was made in my first class for programming that i have taken, it was definitely a challenge.

I would vote Eclipse as my IDE of choice. Started learning when I was 16. Currently know Java, C and MySQL. Studying Computer Engineering :)

 

My uni didn't give us a choice of IDE, we given Eclipse and told "Here use that, but be careful of the Auto Correct options" and they were right the correction features are a trap a new programmer could easily fall into. That being said it is one of my favorites.

 

Anyway, I'm a Software Engineering student with experience in:

 

Python (made my first game with this)

Java

SQL

XHTML

aspx

 

I've also dabbled in or am in the process of learning

 

C#

C++

VB.NET

 

I'm not really sure what I'm going to specialize in or weather I'll continue studies after my undergrad degree or not.

I'm an undergrad in CS. I've currently have learnt the following languages (chronological order with bottom being latest)
Turing
Java

C#
Scheme
C
C++

I've personally done a lot of Java in highschool and when I learnt C in uni it was just completely different. I've heard that they were similar, but I feel they are completely different. I didn't really do any resource managing in Java since it had 'garbage collection', so the jump to C/C++ was a little difficult (along with introduction to pointers and references). I'm now more familiar with C/C++ and am planning on doing a project using OpenGL.

Hi I am TizzyT, I started learning programming (self taught) somewhere in highschool. Thought I start with C but I didn't get it at all. Started looking into simpler things and found RealBasic. Got comfortable with that and moved to VB.NET. Since it was essentially the same I migrated over pretty quickly. After a couple months of learning/using VB.NET I went to learn C#, I found it VERY SIMILAR to VB.NET only that there is case sensitivity and a small syntax change. I messed around with code I wrote in C# and VB.NET and decided to use VB.NET (only because I was more confortable with it). I never really decided to learn Java but a friend of mine in the IT courses asked me for help and he was learning Java, and thought I might have some experience in it, but I didn't non the less it looked very familiar to me and I ended up helping him and learning a bit of Java on the way (even though for some reason I hate it lol). While I was helping my friend I was also in college myself (after a years break), I was attending Devry University in Philadelphia PA (worst school ever imo). I was taking business with a specialty in computer science. I was learning C++ for only 1 of the 4 semesters I was there (which was opossite of what they told me). I bailed from that school and am suffering from debt atm lol but anyways I was comfortable with C++ aswell and I help out classmates that needed help (skype sessions) even one time getting in trouble because I apparently wasn't allowed to help (wtf?). Some people tell me if I know C++ I should know C, and even if that were true I do not say I know how to code in a particular language unless I have actually written something in that language. So C is not on my list lol. As for the other languages I know HTML, Javascript, some R, some D. My plan atm is to wrap my head around x86 or IA-32 (which ever you wanna call it). For now I write mostly in VB.NET because its was essentially the language I started with and am most comfortable, it does what I need and want to do. I am mostly self taught and only had a 8 week course in C++ so as far as being a good programmer goes I'm probably not one but I find it fun and makes me think, and there is always things to learn.

My first contribution ever I think was a little chess timer for my little brother. My first public contribution was in the ps3 scene where I made a simple bundle/GUI to make coldboots for the PS3. Since then I have been on my blog writting little programs that I think are helpful to at least one person and randomly posting projects I have been working on or completed. I provide source and yes they might be bad but I encourage others to improve and post changes in the comments so that I may learn. Currently I am working on a Twitch bot for a friend and its basicially complete, just need to make a couple plugins here and there.

 

Langauges:

Realbasic

VB.NET

C#

C++

Java

R

D

JS

HTML

 

Lanuages I want to eventually learn:

C

ActionScript

CSS

PHP

Python

Some ASM (preferably x86/IA-32)

 

IDEs:

1) Visual Studio (for VB.NET and C#, occasionally C++)

2) Code::Blocks (so much better for c++ imo)

I just got back to university to grab my second bachelor degree in IT-Security and Networking ,

As far as I know we will only be taking Java as a programming language...

 

When it comes to thing I am studying and to expand my knowledge , what other programming language should I learn which will benefit me in the long run?

Very interesting thread, a lot of amazing introductions so unfortunately mine won't be too spectacular. :P

 

I know HTML, CSS and JS (although I prefer to use jQuery) and am mediocre in terms of design. xD I learned PHP like most people in the mainstream, and am now starting to learn Java. I want to eventually learn some form of C, and I still have to get the hang of Objective-Oriented Programming. :P

I am just beginning my journey into programming. I have dabbled in HTML/CSS at shcool etc

 

But I am currently learning Python, as recommended from my Uni friends currently in their 3rd year of computer science.

 

Thinking of doing a computer science degree with the OU, but im not sure

I participated in a programming course at Vancouver Art Institute for spring break when I was in grade 10, ever since then I have been programming, c++ and python. I also know how to do HTML and CSS too :)  :D . I wanted to go to BCIT for their IT program but never got the grades for it (I'm bad at math). In the near future I will be going to college for computer science. WOO WOOT. But yeah I love coding, it's just so relaxing and satisfying.

Was born and grew up in Cardiff, Wales where I taught myself the basics of computer programming as I turned a teenager firstly by typing in a load of peeks and pokes into my Commodore 64 and then thinking I would like to learn what these actually do and visited the central library umpteen number of times to loan out computer programming books on the subject of BASIC.

 

A year or so later I was lucky enough to have given an Amiga 600 (a year later an Amiga 1200) for Christmas and set to work teaching myself AMOS (free cover disk on one of the Amiga magazines at the time) and saved up my pocket money and bought AMOS Professional.  I had great fun with AMOS as it was a development on my knowledge of BASIC.

 

After High School I attended college and took a computer programming course which taught the basics using Pascal before moving onto COBOL and focusing in on C, if I remember correctly we used Borland Turbo C for MS-DOS.  Whilst at College I managed to obtain SAS C and taught myself C on the Amiga which was fun.  I also dabbled a little in 68K and 8x86 Assembly but only a little and can't remember a thing twenty years later! :-)

 

After college I left the world of programming behind me and went into 1st Line Tech Support on a ISP Helpdesk before moving onto 1st Line Tech Support on a Shared Hosting Platform.  This then led onto 2nd Line for the same Shared Hosting Platform where I re-kindled my passion for coding and bought myself a book on PHP as we were also responsible for 1st Line support for integrating our payment card system with customers code.  It was great, I was able to use the knowledge gained write basic scripts that made static web pages a thing of the past.

 

Over the coming years I kept up my PHP knowledge and am now conversant in PHP using OOP techniques in an MVC environment (I prefer using my own MVC framework but have used various frameworks like Cake) using MySQL as my DB of choice.  I also taught myself jQuery as I needed to start integrating my PHP code with Ajax calls.

 

Back eight years ago (around 2006) I did teach myself C# using Visual Studio 2005 and made my first and only game.  It wasn't anything original, just Connect 4 but my then girlfriend (now wife) thought it was fabulous and had it on her computer for quite some time.  Didn't really do much with C# after this but have, in the last month, signed up on Visual Studio Online for a Professional Licence.  This gives me the full Visual Studio 2013 Professional IDE and am currently working through the latest ADO.NET Entity Framework Step by Step book to bring myself up to speed with technologies such as LINQ.

 

IDE's I currently use are PHP Storm (7.1) for PHP development and Visual Studio 2013 Professional.  I also use MySQL Workbench and SQL Server 2012 Management Studio and I mention these as I suppose they could be classed as IDE's for their respective DB engines.

 

I don't work as a Developer or Designer (I couldn't design to save my life) but am still in the IT industry as Data Centre Manager for a large Telecommunications company in the UK.  Coding remains a hobby of mine and I do have ideas in the pipeline for a project based around a Windows C# WPF Application.

Started Programming when I was 14, I am learning to program in Java (touched on C++ a bit), want to eventually learn C#, C and learn more on C++, I learn through a tutor at the local polytechnic, not an official class though, I am 15 and still in high school unfortunately forced to do Word, Excel (its like preschool), Photoshop and Illustrator, I do not mind them although I do not care for mastering them as I am not going down the design path, As for Programming we have only done VB Macros in Powerpoint (*sigh*) and next year are doing scratch (again, preschool). I plan to get a bachelors in Computer Science and later on eventually get a masters and PhD.

Well, I'm 15 and starts programming. I sell themes at themeforest.net and just trying codes. I code HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript and Ruby (still learning ruby tho :D). I learn at codeacademy.com without any knowledge but just putting some effort in learning coding. Coding is fun to do in spare time, also get some money for selling themes :D

Anyone have an IDE that works well for coding in Node? General javascript syntax highlighting is okay but not as robust as I'd like. And having a quick way to run node files without opening up the command prompt would be nice. 

Look at the node.js-mode for Emacs or some of the other modes that work with it:

Just found this thread. I think it's pretty cool. Pretty awesome to see all of these creations with all of these different languages.

 

I develop websites however. HTML5, CSS3, the usual stuff (I'm 14 and self-taught.)

 

I know a few bit-more-than-useless-but-barely languages: Batch and YAML.

 

Just a hello from me, and I look forward to conversing with fellow programmers.

 

I'd like to learn Ruby currently. I'm looking into learning it. I'd like to learn Java or something from the C family later, too.

Hey everyone :)

 

My coding journey started when I was about 10 or 11 dabbling in XHTML and CSS, learning off of TheNewBostons tutorials (I never really got anywhere with XHTML and CSS) after that I played around in Java on and off from then until now (I am 14 now) and I got a pretty decent understanding of the Java syntax but never really got anywhere with it. After seeing Barnacules' Codegasm series on C# I downloaded Visual Studio 2013 and have been playing around in C# for the last couple weeks and so far I love it! I find it very similar to Java so my tiny Java background gave me a bit of a head start. I am currently working on a RPG style text-based game in C# and I am having quite a bit of fun with it :)

 

Languages I am Currently Learning: (Disappointing)

Java (On and Off)

C#

 

Languages I am Interested in Learning: (In the next 2 years)

C++

C#

Python

HTML

Javascript

 

IDE's:

Eclipse (Java)

Visual Studio Express 2013 (C#)

Notepad++ (Any Scripting Languages)

 

Goals:

I am hoping that by the time I am 18 I can be fluent in atleast 2 or 3 major languages :D
