1986–
Wrote a game on the Amstrad PCW with it
1988–
1990–
Learned it while in high school on the BBC micro
1991–
My first compiled language. Taught me about pointers
1992–1996
LATEX rocks. Doggy book FTW.
1992–1995
Was how programming was taught at the University of York while I was there. Odd, perhaps, but gave a context for understanding languages Java or C++ would not have done
1992–
Started with the DICE compiler on the Amiga
1993–
1993–1994
Functional programming lectures at university...
1995–
First used it to write an advent calendar, with parallax snow and flying Santa
1997–
XML freak, what more can I say
1997–
Stumbled into it writing result maps for the UK general election
1997–
First learned it (using 'guile') because it had a good IRC library and I was writing bots. Revisit every other winter holiday, nursing my copy of the Little Schemer.
1997–
Used it since it appeared in Navigator, and also server-side in the Netscape server (remember that?) Only recently started to care for it, thanks to JQuery
1997–
Learned by writing an XML parser in Visual C++. Never really enjoyed or wanted to revisit though
1998–
Couldn't have written my first startup without it, but then spent years looking for an alternative
2003–
Miguel de Icaza's Mono was my gateway, and I still think C# is the best compiled language available. Shame the Free Software world isn't very fond of it
2005–
Got into it via Rails, powered my second startup and is still the day job
