1995–
My mispent teenage years, and a recurring holiday job making intranet webpages to display weather modelling data for a hydro electric scheme.
1996–1998
1996–2000
When I decided to move on from MCI, it was kind of in a hurry -- my bills were suddenly higher than an hour-and-rate-limited co-op position could support. But I had something going for me -- the web. I got a contracting job at Ernst & Young, using VBScript 1.0 and this new fangled ActiveX (shipping in IE 3.0, 1996). We used VBScript on the server and client. A terrible language. I tried to explain that we could use JavaScript instead, but VBScript was the ASP default, and besides, they'd just learned VBScript.... Soon enough, it was time to move on to MicroGrafx (around 1998). Since I'd been doing web stuff for 2 years and had client-side down at that point, I landed a job there, helping with their eCommerce site and their personalized electronic greeting cards (Flash-based). eCommerce became my career for a while...
1997–
Started learning VBScript/VBA while studying. Then moved onto commercial ASP classic development (mostly building content management sites) - can't say I enjoyed the technology. Still on the odd occasion have to support ASP classic code (unfortunately) - would be nice to put and end year on this language!

I first learned VBScript so I could script video games then later I used VBA. Years later, I was cursed to use this language for three years while I worked in an ASP shop.
1998
1998–1999
<% %> was my -first interaction- with a programming language. FrontPage used it through ASP, so I wanted to try it out (and Feel Coolâ„¢). Didn't get a bit of it.
1998–2001
Let us never speak of this again.

Once had a worm in VBS running around High School library, still going afaik

I worked with VBScript in the browser for a few months at Battelle. I was actually pleasantly surprised at how much easier it was to use than JavaScript. In retrospect it was easier to use because I did not fully understand JavaScript at that time.
2001–2007
Used with ASP for websites and WSH for Windows automation
2001
2002–2008
First wrote VBScript when I moved to ASP, and last used it in Excel. I'd rather not talk (or think) about those days or that code.
2003–2005
A scorn upon mankind. Forced to use with Classic ASP, although I'd try to use JScript whenever possible.
2003–
Still maintaining and developing web sites written in VBScript/ASP. Looking forward to the day when i can forget all about it.
2003–2005
Can you believe the company I worked for used this with ASP to build websites? Appalling.

Used a flavor of VBScript called RhinoScript for Rhino3D (until Rhino3D got Python).
2006–2010
Legacy systems.
2008–2010
Picked up while working for my second web company that was using ASP Classic sites.
2009–2010
2010–
A little late to the game, but legacy systems called.
A WHILE AGO, FORGOT EVERYTHING ABOUT IT.
