1994–1997
Used to do crazy animations and infinite loops on this. Was fun to draw with. Got me hooked into programming
1996–1997
Worked on a banking app for a few months and built a full video store app with this. Almost went blind because of this language: ALL CAPS CODE and thousand lines methods. It took me years to recover from this...
1996–1998
Learned at my first year of university. I wrote my first prank on this language. Something that pretended to be a virus but was a joke.
1996–1997
I did not really get Pascal back then. We did the typical Fibonacci series and a couple of other mathematical problems but... Maybe a language to explore again?
1996–1998
My professor gave me a 10 on this one! Once I understood that I could have arrays of pointers inside arrays of pointers, it was a switch in my learning. Got me hooked into programming.
1997–1998
Hi my name is Sebastian and I programmed in VB for a year. Don't want to do it ever again. THXBYE
1999–
The current language that gets me a paycheck. It's a love-hate relationship. Love how I can test, refactor and move code around quickly. Hate how much typing I have to do to get things done.
2003–2005
I loved how I could some animation with it in Flash. Oh colors and shapes!! It got me closer to my QBasic days...
2003
First scripting language. Messed up my brain badly. But I love it for that. Had to quit though. It was not Perl, it was me. I was not ready for it.
2005–
Started with prototype with Rails, then did some JQuery and I am now exploring Raphael. But guess what? This year I am going to learn the real javascript, not the frameworks. I promise
2005–
On an off. Started with Rails and now I have been into pure Ruby since the start of 2010. Jumping from Python to Ruby is a good experience, it makes you appreciate the subtleties for both languages. Unit testing in ruby sometimes looks easier.
2007–
Started with very small home projects but when Google App Engine launched in 2009, I took a deep dive in it and never looked back. My favorite language right now
2007–
After finding out how hard it was to get JRuby running on the JVM, I looked at Grails and got it working right away. Did a couple of internal projects for my company with it. Used it again this past week. If you are stuck on the JVM, it's a great way to get the dynamic features that you miss on python or ruby. Lots of legacy products can evolve thanks to Groovy
2009–
TDD'ing this is hard. Not impossible. Just hard. Need to do more. I do small apps for fun that I never release to the store. That needs to change as well.
2009–2010
Got to do simple fun games on the Nintendo DS with Lua. Easy and simple to run.
2010–
Messed up my brain. Gave up on it, restarted and gave up again. But what I learned with it influences my everyday work. I haven't given up on you Haskell!
