1999–2001
First language. You know a language is good when you have to write your own line numbers
1999
Made a triangle that represented a 'turtle' draw other triangles, etch-a-sketch style!
2000–2001
This as well as Comal were the two languages that introduced me to the big wide world of programming. I've been hooked ever since, but I'd never touch Pascal again in my life!
2001–2002
Used very briefly in high school, in their super-advanced AI course. Hehe
2003–
My first 'grown up' language. It's always creeped back into my life over the years, most recently as the language I used whilst learning OpenGL.
2004–2009
Used at University while learning OOP. Strangely, we used this AFTER using Java.
2005–
Picked this up in Uni for a 'use whatever language you want' assignment to build a basic banking system. The course was focused on databases (relational), but I used it as an opportunity to learn PHP. I now only use it in the capacity of tweaking Wordpress sites.
2005–
University mandated first language. Would have had a better grounding if they didn't teach it using BlueJ. Still have bad memories of JSP *shudder*
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.
2006
Used to create a desktop version of an ASP app. Never. Again.
2006
Wrote an animated menu for a Flash presentation. Before I hated Flash.
2006–2008
The University mandated language for learning GUI programming & software design patterns. This cumulated in a simple vector-based image editor, with file-saving, undo history, and the usual bells & whistles.
2007–
Picked this up to contend in my university's Hackday. Been using it heavily ever since.
2008–
In my final year of Uni, we weren't taught a new language, so I picked up Python (via Django). It's now my language of choice for writing websites.
2009–
I delved into Ruby after Python to see how Rails stacked up against Django, but until I find another use for it, I'll remain a Ruby amaetuer.
2009
Had a look into this when I got interested in iPhone development. After a couple of days I decided "Bugger this, i'll make a web app!"
