1985–1986
Logo was my very first experience in programming at Primary School on a Thompson TO7.
1986–1988
My first self learned programming language on an old Video Genie (a TRS-80 clone) offered by an oncle.
1989–1990
Thompson TO8 programming.
1991–1993
Amiga 500 programming.
1992–1997
Learned imperative programming with Pascal.
1996–1998
Amiga demo coding for fun.
1996–1997
The language I learned functionnal programming with at the University.
1997–1998
Micro-controllers programming for embedded systems at the University. Coming from 68000 Assembly the instruction set was more limited but still quite powerful.
1997–
Learned relationnal programming with SQL at the University and rediscover it in 2001. I never really used the PL part though.
1997–
Planed to use it on several real world projects and always found a better solution. I digged lot of C++ ressources though.
1997–
The UNIX world natural language. My first work language.
1999–
Use it as a glue language for Linux sysadmin. I now lean to Python for everything that is not trivial.
1999
Used Modula-2 at the University to learn realtime programming on embedded systems.
2002–
Love at first sight. I use it at work since 2004. I need really good reasons to use another language on my projects.
2003–
Used for DOM manipulation and hated it until I discovered jQuery. Recently learned its inheritance model and plan to test it for server side programming.
2003–2009
Gave web developpment access to the mass. I hate myself everytime I code in PHP.
2003–
Oneliner for file editing with sed and awk.
2004–2007
Did a bit of scripting and text processing. Regex and CPAN are great but I never got use to Perl magical syntax. I definitly replaced Perl with Python.
2007–2008
I dig inside the language to learn RoR. I then discover Python also has an amazing web framework with Django and got back to Python.
2008–
Read Joe's book and did some helloword programming. I love how easy it is to implement parallel and distributed programs. Looking forward to apply on a real world project.
2009
Love Haskell purity and how close it is from Maths. It helped me improve my functional programming skills but my brain hurts too fast.
