2003–
Chose a book on C++ because of a new interest in making games. However, the book I read was very poorly written, so I wasn't able to make anything more than trivial programs. Should have learned C first though..
2007–
Use it almost exclusively when bored in class. Usually spent my time writing programs to solve mathematical problems in order to increase productivity. Anything else I wrote was some sort of game for playing with friends.
2007–
I became intrigued by ASM when I learned the difference between "high level" and "low level" languages.
2009–
Wanted to learn it before, but discouraged by others saying it resembled "line noise". After finally trying it, it's safe to say that Perl is actually quite readable yet compact if one takes the right approach. I like it.
2009–
At first I thought Ruby was pointless to learn, but fortunately I gave it a second look. Now it seems to be my favorite language.
2009–
Only started to learn this as I familiarized myself with Linux. Reading The C Programming Language by K&R also helped me become serious about learning it.
2009–
Introduced to it in web development class. It's alright, I guess.
2009–
Used it for a bit. I thought it was a breath of fresh air compared to TI-BASIC, mostly because I was actually coding at my computer rather than busily tapping away on my calculator. First-class functions make it really great for reusing code.
2009–
I use it increasing more and more each day, and so have learned many commands.
2009
Forced to learn it for class.
2010–
2010–
J is different, but in a totally awesome way that changes the way one thinks about programming.
2010–
Introduced me to "logic programming".
