1982–1985
First ever experience programming was with Logo at Primary School. I'm now helping my daughter to learn / use it. :-)
1983–1989
Cut my teeth with BBC Basic. Lots of fond memories of the language and the code. Like @jtauber I spent much of my time playing Elite ;-)
1993
Hacked together a silly little script on the *only* available PC at the Royal College of Music. I must've been the only person to use the machine for stuff other than fighting with crappy wordprocessing.
1994–1995
Learned about OO with this fun little language while I should have been reading for a philosophy degree. Lots of fun in a multi-user development environment with colleagues from all over the world all connected via telnet. Awesome!
2000–2003
Learned it (and C++) during evening classes while I was still a music teacher. Used it extensively during my MSc. Never had need of it since.
2000–2003
Learned it (and C) during evening classes while I was still a music teacher. Used it extensively during my MSc. Never had need of it since.
2002
Was inflicted upon me as part of my MSc course. Have also had to refactor VB.NET on occasion.
2002–
Learned it during my MSc. Only recently used it in anger for Android development.
2002–2003
Spent a lot of time working with XSLT during MSc. Never used it since.
2002–2003
Used during my MSc to hack together some web-based projects. Nice to "know" it due to ubiquity of tools like Wordpress, Moodle etc...
2003–
My first job after my MSc was in a .NET shop. Spent five years solid commercial experience with this language. Still maintain some code.
2003–
Started out as a PIA (mainly due to the browsers) but I've recently really been loving Javascript.
2005–2007
Did some Rails when Rails was pre-1.0 and still v.small. Also helped write/maintain a chat-bot library written in Ruby. Mostly forgotten since becoming a Pythonista.
2008–
Started to read lots of LISP and I'm in the process of learning all about it (and Clojure)
2008–
Spent a summer learning Erlang and went to a course and conference. Love the ideas but get annoyed w/syntax. What was Uncle Joe thinking..? (Prolog apparently)
2008–
Have never looked back! ;-)
2009–
First heard of / tried out Clojure last year. Have been attending London dojos and determined to get this one under my belt.
