It was my first school's first attempt at teaching IT, I spent more time playing Sky than working with the turtle.
2007–
First learnt it in 1st year, and now its alongside C as the most frequent language I use. Clean syntax, extensive support in the form of libraries and highly portable. Building a GUI is a bit confusing at start and its the one thing C# is better at.

First learnt this at NIIT during the summer before starting university though ended up using a lot of non-standard practices. Gained heavily while beating competition and then when doing 3rd year coursework. Would've loved to do my 3rd year project in C, by far my favourite language to program in.

Had to learn it at university. I have heard it being recommended for introducing people to programming but I don't see it, its syntax is a bit inelegant and its a bit messy to start with. Use C#(if you like your .NET) or Java instead.
2008–
Learnt it out of necessity for some vacation work. Never went too deep into it, just did enough to deal with existing APIs for 3D graphics.
2008–
Used it a bit to do light form submission and a bit of AJAX for university and work, not really a fan of it.
2008–
Learnt it as part of university course, but haven't used it since and see it as a bit pointless. Its basically Java for Windows.
2009–
Learnt it as part of a work placement and have used it for 1 university project. Its rather similar to Bash in syntax and needs a decent IDE and better documented libraries to increase appeal in the corporate world.
2009–
I love how purely mathematical it is. The over-reliance on recursion can be a bit of a nightmare especially if you are used to languages like Java but you can write really small yet powerful programs once you know your way around.
