I didn't realize Bash counted as a language, but yes, I've written a few scripts on it back in the days when I had to use a Unix machine. It's OK if you're one of those Cretaceous period computer people who regard graphical interfaces as a sign of inbreeding.
1990–
1990–
Still write simple shell scripts from time to time.
1990–
I was 12 the first time I got on a Unix system (Solaris). A 16-year-old ubergeek friend taught us the basics. 20 years later I continue accumulating knowledge.
1990–2010
1990–1999

While zsh was my chosen shell for years, good ole' bash is hard to beat!
1993–
1993–1998
Learned it doing web work, before I got the hang of Perl. Then had to use it when I worked as a sysadmin. Now I'm grateful every day I don't have to bang my head on the desk trying to figure out how to make the argument evaluation/whitespace-splitting logic do what I want.
1993–
As little as possible. But it comes in handy to know how to while and if your way through the outcomes of a few things. Pretty soon I lose patience with it and write a PHP script.
1993–
1994–
1994–
1994–
1995–
oh gosh, people write whole programmes with this? learn to perl!
1995–
Pre-requisite for linux, especially in the terminal reliant, dark ages. It doesn't get much recognition but it's a damn fine, influential and useful language.
1995–
1995–
Lets you use both = and == to test for equality! You can't get fairer than that. Even though it does lead to people writing non-POSIX scripts headed by #!/bin/sh that break on every system where /bin/sh is not BASH. Tards.

I have used BASH every day since I installed Slackware '96. Possibly my one true love.
1996–
1996–
Come with my first Linux :)
1997–
I'm a Unix user
1997–
I started playing with Linux on a Pentium 60 and Solaris on a SPARC ELC.
1997–
This thing stinks. Seriously, it is only for haxx0rs who have low self esteem. It's a bit like all that obtuse accountant terminology. As if you would want steal an accountant's job, I ask yer... use PYTHON
1997–
Who hasn't written scripts in Bash? If you have used Linux then you learned Bash.
1998–
Awful, but sometimes irresistibly practical.
1998–
[ $StepsNeeded -eq 1 ] && echo "I like code that doesn't branch"\! || echo foo
1998–
If you do *nix, you have to bash.
1998–
Always.
1998–
1999–
The swiss army knife of the sysadmin. The fact you usually end up stabbing yourself is why there are so many openings for sysadmins :)
1999–
1999–
Use it as a glue language for Linux sysadmin. I now lean to Python for everything that is not trivial.
1999–
This is my shell. There is still much to learn.
1999–
Still use the crap out of it.
1999–
1999–

Sysadmin scripts... Lots of them. I've written more than a few deployment systems in Bash. I still couldn't tell you the proper syntax for a conditional. I write bash with a reference nearby. It gets the job done.
1999–
1999–
The best of Unix.
1999–
I still find the syntax odd. fi.

Part of using a linux/unix based system is an ability to use bash & co to create your own shortcuts, IMO.
2001–
My first real programming experience, still my favorite for most simple things.
2001–
2001–
For some things it's hard to beat the simplicity of bash.
2001–
Been writing Bash scripts since I became a Unix geek -- even after I realized that any Bash script >10 lines really wants to be a Python or Ruby script instead.
2001–

Started trying to seriously learn Linux, not just dick around with it.

First really got into bash scripting as a level 1/2 sysadmin in college. Its served me well.
2002–
Feels still strangeā€¦
2003–

About all it's got going for it is that it's right there in my shell.
2003–
Essential tool for any computer/OS with a decent command line.

I used it to script benchmarks for a research project. A real pain, I should have used Python !
2004–
2004–
Trying to use Python more and more for sysadmin work, but there are still times when bash is the right tool for the job
2004–
Ebuilds for Gentoo
2004–
2004–
#!/bin/bash I love it. But it's half a language.
2004–
Use it some, but the more Ruby I've learned, the less bash I've used.
2004–
2004–
2004–
I still work in the BASH shell every day, and BASH scripting is a part of daily life.
2004–
I started tinkering with Bash scripts back in 2004, as webmaster for the school where I taught. Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, MD.

2005–
Only basic working knowledge to get by with Linux
2005–
Where would I be without oneliners :P
2005–
I started working in a robotics lab during my undergrad. Everything was linux. I needed to learn bash. Funny how every person new to the environment goes through the same sequence of questions and realizations for about the first six months.
2005–
Love bash. Love bash so hard.
2005–
2005–
I don't think I wrote BASH scripts until quite late in my career as I was re-introduced to Unix through Linux. I still would rather write a Python script than a 2-line BASH script.
2005–
2005–
2006–
Wrote a simple version-control system as a set of bash scripts for a Uni project. Great fun, but more than anything it helped me make better use of the Linux terminal.

I still enjoy a little BASH scripting now and then. Sometimes it is nice to have a very simple language to accomplish simple tasks.
2007–
2007–
2007–
Used other shells (sh, tcsh) since 1992.
2007–
Counting the learning date as when I first used it, not when I first used it for proper shell scripting (2009 or so).
2007–
Finally started writing tons of shell scripts (even for Windows) using bash.
2007–
Writing custom scripts.
2007–
2008–2009
HATE HATE HATE. (As a "programming language".)
2008–
Learned out of a need to solve repetitive command line tasks and sysadmin work.
2008–
Used it at University to learn some advanced UNIX stuff, also had a failed attempt to use it at work to try and automate some stuff.
2008–
I learned a lot of bash scripting while making my dotfiles portable across many different platforms. It would have been much easier in Python ;)
2008–
2008–
Took it at college as well. I just wrote a few simple scripts. Didn't really liked it, I found it a bit too clunky.

2008–
2009–
Used in University to learn scripting in Linux
2009–
learnt this last year working with linux console, also tutored it a bit this year. can't say i really see the point of it, but then again i didn't go that far into it...
2009–
Still learning, very basic, but use it on my personal linux machines.
2009–
2009–
2009–
Finally made it a point in 2009 to learn Bash scripting, what with OS X being my preferred OS.
2009–
I use it increasing more and more each day, and so have learned many commands.
2009–
2009–2011

2013–
scripting. I had to write it from scratch at school
Daily
I barely know bash, mostly because the environment where it's used seems to demand fairly in depth knowledge of so many different tools to be effective.
