Favorite Programming Languages

Postby aliveinHim » Tue Sep 25, 2012 7:28 pm

I dunno if there's a thread already on this but what are y'alls fav languages? I'm still a beginner self-taught programmer but C++ is my fav. I do markup languages (which don't really count but who cares) like HTML and CSS for web pages. I've learned a teeny bit of Javascript too. I've programmed games in Batch Script too :).
"And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus." Ephesians 2:1-7

I have to say C# for me, but probably only just because that's the one i'm working the most with. I do know java, html, css, javascript, but yeah i don't work with them as much as i would like to.

Currently developing a 2D game for iOS, WP and Android using XNA these days. Kinda hoping that i can get it released before the end of the year:)

I'm going to try to make an app for my work place over the summer. Making simple games is a lot of fun but it's sad when there's a bug in the code :(.

I would say Perl but it's been years since I did anything with it.

Javascript is my next thing (if that counts), but most of my work hours these days is spent in meetings and writing documentation. :|

Oh yeah! that can be so fustrating at times! Especially if you know something is wrong, but the IDE is not helping much on telling what the error could be :bang:

I like C++ the most, because you can do the most (in my mind) with it. There's things you can express in C++ that you simply can't in Java, which can be frustrating, or leave you hoping the optimiser will pick it up and hopefully make it efficiently. (Java is the language I know second best.)
Everywhere like such as, and MOES.

For anything that doesn't require a Windows GUI, I'd go with C++, if does, I would use C#. Also, ADI assembly language is way better to work with than TI's.
The scientific method," Thomas Henry Huxley once wrote, "is nothing but the normal working of the human mind." That is to say, when the mind is working; that is to say further, when it is engaged in corrrecting its mistakes. Taking this point of view, we may conclude that science is not physics, biology, or chemistry—is not even a "subject"—but a moral imperative drawn from a larger narrative whose purpose is to give perspective, balance, and humility to learning.

Well, there are several here who have a percent for Perl. I would be one of them. Actually, I occasionally teach Perl at the community college where I work, so I admit up front that I'm biased. ;) And, of course, the drummer in my band knows quite a bit about the language too. ^.^

I think I liked C++ best from the ones I kind of know (I know nothing about graphics or loading/saving for any language)

I was forced to use Python, and I didn't find it bad (but again, perl fans will be trashing me :P feel free, I don't mind)

and I had to use Turing (I didn't like that)

We were also so close to learning Java, which would have been cool to try.

I am pretty much a total newb at coding but the languages I have dabbled in currently are python, html/css, php, c, c++. The only ones I have really done anything with are html/css and python. The most I've done with python though is write a script that spits out line by line all the lyrics to that infamous song about a certain number of bottles of a certain adult beverage of required taste on the wall which I then used to spam my co-workers over spark when I worked at a web-hosting company. I have also dabbled a little in django, evennia, and ren'py as well as skimmed through some blender plugin code. But other than that I have not really done much.

Wow, that's a decent number of languages you're trying to learn all at once, good luck.

Though, isn't this topic like... a year and a half old?
