1983–
Still have the original Turbo Pascal 3.0 book on my bookshelf.
1984–1990
Purely educational.
1984–1989
1985–1986
Used in college for compiler class and more, but not until I had suffered some ancient Honeywell based teletype system to learn Pascal. Made my life 10 times easier and I was way more productive.
1985–1988
Stopped using Turbo Pascal once I learned C, but it was the first structured programming language (i.e., one with curly braces) that I ever used, and the first IDE.
1985–
1987–1990
Was the main language programmed with while I was in high school (and actually briefly got to use it *at* high school). Also the first language I did OO with (version 5.5 had OO extensions).
1987–1990
I got Turbo pascal 5.5 for my 15th birthday. Didn't get objects at all.
1987–1994
Took a C class after graduation. Up to that point, my programming exposure was Basic and COBOL. Ran screaming from the C class. The next year I signed up for Intro to CS and they taught Pascal. Fell in absolute love with it. Like James Tauber said, it was definitely the Python of its time.
1988–1991
School, internship.
1988–1989
there was a computer in our school library that had it, so i played around with it
1988–1991
High school...
1988–1994
Oooh, this was so nice after BASIC and MS ASM.
1989–1992
My first computer, an XT clone came with a copy of Turbo Pascal 4. My father was adamant I learn a 'proper language'. Turbo Pascal is your ugly cousin who inappropriately rubs her knees against you at dinner.
1989–
1989–1991
1990–1993
Aah, high school programming… TSR programs to stay dormant, then bounce characters around the screen…
1990–1992
Took a Computer Math course (super-nerd elective). About 3 weeks into it, I started helping my teacher; lots of other students were struggling.
1990–1992
1991–1993
1991–1992
For a class only; never used it for anything else.
1991–1992
Learned OOP for the first time. Productive language and elegant implementation, far better than standard Pascal.
1991–1995
1991–1996
It all started with the mandatory university course. Soon started using it left and right after that. Object oriented, mostly.
1991–1999
Got it from a friend while at high-school. My first (successful) experience with a compiled language.
1992–1995
My first programming language beyond BASIC. I did some awesome things but hopefully can't remember any of it now. Sadly I can still see my Turbo Pascal 6.0 books on a shelf above me ...
1993–1994
1993–1995
1993–
1994–1996
My third language which I learned while taking an independent study in high school. Thank you Mrs. Jennett for letting me take an independent study even though programming was well over your head.
1994
1994–1995
1995–1997
Did a few things with it in the first years of HS, where we had a mini-course on it during math (?) hours.
1995–1997
Used as the language at college to learn programming.
1995–1999
1995–
My second language after basic. My first steps OOP.
1995–1999
The only programming language we used when I was in high school.
1995–1996
I only used Turbo Pascal for a few CS courses in college (until I changed my major to Creative Writing, like a sensible person).
1996–1999
My first programming language at the university. I still like it.
1996
First compiler I ever had access to. I remember spending hours making an awesome text colorer that would rotate the colors. It was even more cool because I could provide it with any string and it would just work. :-)
1996
1997–2002
Second programming language. Used it in high school, never on real world projects.
1997–2000
1997–1999
My first formal programming class. Of course I won the programming competition at the end of the class. The prize was a Coca-Cola mouse pad that I still have somewhere.

1998–2001
Learned this in highschool.
1998–2002
as i said... teenager ! :S
1998–1999
The first language that I learned in junior highschool. Back then we just printed colorful texts on the command prompt. It was fun, but I didn't see the real application of programming languages by that time.
1998–1999
First programming class in High School.
1998–1999
2002
2002–2005
My first programming language. Oh, how times have changed..
2002–2010
2003

One of my favorites.
