1987–
My first language, on a ZX-81!
1988–
Learned it at school, and on a friend's Amstrad PCW 8256.
1989–1992
On friends' computers.
1990–1993
Aah, high school programming… TSR programs to stay dormant, then bounce characters around the screen…
1994–1998
Never much since college.
1995–
Learned it in my first Summer session in college. Loved it ever since.
1997–2007
Aah, the bad old days…
1998
One or two classes in college. I would not trust myself to use it for real without reading two or three specific books.
1999–
Who doesn't use javascript?
2001–2007
(on and off) Ugh.
2002–
The Pragmatic Programmer pushed me towards Ruby, before Rails existed. I use it now only for things like Chef/Puppet, with no clear Python alternative. And I still miss _why.
2003
Just for one project. Loved the community, though.
2007–
This is the language I use at work every day.
Tried to learn it once or twice. May try again.
“This one time in college…”
Aah. The Apple II. Or in my case, the CV-777 knockoff!
Dabble from time to time.
A little.
