1998
Wrote my first program in this.
2002–
Found K&R on my bookshelf and started reading.
2003–2007
From knowing only JE, JNE, JMP, and NOP to knowing how memory management works and different operation modes is a big step.
2003–
2004–
All hackers use perl! Was turned off by all the single character text operators, but I got over it. Yep, it's the 800-pound swiss army chain saw of programming languages. Who needs other tools if they've got perl?
2006–2007
Too many redundant libraries and long names!
2007–
Hello, Dr. Scheme.
2007
Is this basically 8086 assembly? Yeah, managing those memory pages sucked. It's so awkward and arbitrary.
2007–2008
Sed oneliners are cool.
2007–2009
Kept seeing it used a lot by Linux users.
2007–
Writing custom scripts.
2008
Added a function to a ti-82 that was only on ti-84.
2008–
Didn't want to waste time with it, but kept seeing it "everywhere" on the web.
2008–
Learn the syntax in 5 minutes, then just look at the reference? Maybe I'm wrong.
2008–
This language is so beautiful it makes me cry, as if there's a big onion near my computer.
2008–
Went through Dive Into Python. This is where I really learned about regular expressions.
2008
Everything is in a global namespace? Grrr...
2009–
I know how to add two numbers and define functions. Does that count? :P
2009
Was jealous of extremely short solutions to ProjectEuler problems. Very compact indeed.
