1996–
This is the first programming language that I deployed anything for the rest of the world to see. I did some crazy cool things with the status bar back in the day. :-)
1996
First compiler I ever had access to. I remember spending hours making an awesome text colorer that would rotate the colors. It was even more cool because I could provide it with any string and it would just work. :-)
1999–
The first language that I spent any real time with and the first language I got paid to work in. Great at all purpose, go anywhere web work, despite what its detractors say.
2007–
My first introduction to Python-esque syntax. Man, was I surprised when the beautiful one-liners I had been testing in CPython blew up when running in a version of Jython without the stdlib code. :-)
2007–
This is my all-time favorite language. Having lightweight processes built into the language. How can you beat that? I just wish I had more reason to use it.
2007–
Started learning it when I started using the Grinder. Learned very quickly that not all Jython versions were created equal.
2008–
Every few months I come back to Objective C. I love the natural syntax and wish more languages would follow its lead.
2008–
First started playing with it in late 2008. In late 2008 or early 2009 I was one of a bevy of tech reviewers for Stuart Halloway's Programming Clojure book from Pragmatic Bookshelf and spent some time with the language. I've never had a reason to use it in a live environment, but would definitely reach for it if I was deploying code that had to live in the JVM.
2009–
In an effort to pick up the final of the big three dynamic languages, I started learning Ruby in 2009. I feel comfortable coding in it now, but definitely wouldn't consider myself an expert by any stretch of the imagination.
2009–
This is one of my favorite supersets of Javascript. I love the Objective-X syntax, and it can run in any modern web browser. Definitely a blast to work with.
