1994–1995
This is where I started. Taught myself some Basic before learning Pascal in school.
1995–
My second language after basic. My first steps OOP.
1998–
From Turbo Pascal to Delphi. Was kind of cool with the visual GUI editing. Had to use it in University (old Professor, next year they switched to Java) to program on the blackboard. With chalk. Not kidding!
1998–
JS has seen a great revival and will continue to step into the limelight. With Apple & Google pushing hard to make it extremely fast and node.js & capuccino et al there is a lot of potential.
2001–2002
Every programmer should have used C to understand the basic concepts of types, memory management and pointers.
2001–2003
Loved it back then in University, coming from Delphi. Don’t like it now, after years in “scripting” languages. Feels so overblown and clunky.
2002
Maybe if I had had a good professor in university I would have got it…
2003–2004
Wrote my diploma thesis in LaTex and had a job as typesetter for a while.
2003–
Essential tool for any computer/OS with a decent command line.
2003–
Not a good language, but gets the job done and pays my bills atm.
2005–
A beautiful, elegant and expressive language. Period.
2008–
Don’t like e.g. global functions instead of OOP and the mandatory spacing stuff is just weird. Ruby is much nicer.
