1992–1999
Really early foray into the world of programming. I was too young for this. It only lasted that number of years because they were still kicking about when I reached high school. It was still fun to mess around with it then.
1999–2003
Ah True Basic. I whipped through so many programming assignments at school in so little time using you. The assignments were too easy. In retrospect this was probably a good teaching language for 12/13 year old kids. They probably should have moved on to something else for Standard Grade though.
2002
Some really basic AI programming in high school. It would be interesting to have a closer look now.
2005–
Started programming in Java at university. To this day it is my most used language.I've programmed everything from artificial neural network based systems to visualization tools in Java. My day job currently involves a lot of Java programming.
2005–2006
Dropped this as soon as I no longer had to use it for university assignments. There's nothing particularly wrong with the language, but there's certainly not anything right with it.
2006–
A relaly useful language to be able to use when doing any web work.
2006–
Handy tool to have. Great scripting tool for linux boxes.
2006–
I wrote my honours project in C++. C++ really helped to broaden my understanding of a number of the important principles of programming.
2007–
A really great alternative to Java that runs on the .NET framework. While being so similar to Java it has some really nice elements which Java doesn't. I still prefer Windows Forms to Swing for GUI programming.
2007–
I used PHP for some relatively simple web projects. I'd still like to go back to it for another project at some point.
2008–
I started using Python when I started working with Django. From my experience so far it's a well thought out, clean language. It's top of my list of languages to learn in greater depth.
2008–
C's main use for me was when I was writing 3D graphics applications using OpenGL. I quite like the language, really good to see where all the C derivatives started off.
