1996
Technically, my very first programming language. I had a college course as a Freshman, which was great fun.
1996–
Ahhh... "fond" memories of "Structured Programming 1" as a Freshman in college :)
1996–2000
A wonderful time-saving feature for all those forumlas that weren't built-in...
1997–2006
I learned OO concepts and wrote my first OO programs in Java, though I haven't really done anything significant since 2006.
1998–
Another one of those super-useful languages that I probably don't use nearly enough.
1998
1998–2007
1998
Saw this in a programming languages class and we probably spent most of the time with Ada. I remember thinking it was OK.
1998–
1998
Saw it briefly in a programming languages class.
1998–
This is one of those great tools that I just don't use nearly enough.
1999
All it took was one project. I knew I would never touch this crap again.
1999–
This is my shell. There is still much to learn.
1999–
I'm a web developer. I use it as needed for that purpose.
1999–2009
I used PHP in my first paid programming job (as a web developer).
1999–
SQL (and therefore the PL addons) gets a bad rap sometimes. It can be quite an elegant language.
2005–
Tried it out as Rails was gaining steam. Actually wrote a few small command-line file-processing utilities, instead. Revisited this (and Rails) right at the end of 2011.
2005–
Originally wrote some small toy command-line networking utilities, just to get a feel for the language. Then, I started using python for Image processing in 2008 (with PIL and OpenCV) and then started building web apps with Django in 2009. It is now my language of choice.
2005–
Checked it out when I got my first mac. Not super impressed with the language, but it's quite powerful since it's so tightly integrated into the OS.
2006–2007
Used this to do quite a bit of network simulation with ns-2.
2007–2008
2007–2010
Yep. Writing scientific papers with latex rocks.
2008–2010
Dug into this briefly in 2008, but put it aside for a year until I build a few toy iPhone apps in late 2010.
2009
Have used this some with a project built on OpenSim.
2009
I suppose I'm a latecomer here, but I tried this for the first time not long ago and sat down with my young daughter and drew some interesting pictures... I need to go do this again!
