favorite programming language

  • my fav are the one im working with: C# .Net and SQL I started with basic on a C64 <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> , learned assembler(x86 and for a microcontroller Infineon C167), C, C++, Java, a bit from everything. once you know an object oriented language, you know how things work and thats pretty the same for all languages. the syntax of the language is irrelevant in the end. what´s important is what you can do with it. C# is very similar to Java - very confortable to work with, another important thing is that it has a very good devloper environment -&gt; MS Developer Studio 2003 .Net very powerful tool. Eclipse (for Java) is also veryvery good. i enjoyed programming from the lowest levels(assembler) up to the highest, most abstract ones (Java, C++, C#). It was always fun to play around with bits &amp; bytes, but also with objects. Fjord Edited by - LordFjord on 11/24/2004 12:32:03 AM

  • HTML is always good to work with; it´s simple and efficient, and allows for maximum creativity <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>.

  • The only one I ever really messed with was Basic. <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

  • i do alot of programming for websites so im a big fan of asp/sql but app wise, im using c=+ mostly at the moment and im &quot;this&quot; close to busting its secrets open, at the moment its an uphill struggle <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

  • Meh. I hate them all, I hate programming, hate it, hate it, hate it! But if I HAD to choose, I´d say VB is the easiest and you can still do a fair bit with it. Hate java the most, it just doesn´t make any sense dammit!

  • *shivers when hearing VB* <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> wont touch that ever - again. <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Fjord

  • i did some programming back on my old 286, melting a few processors with my desire to know Pi. now a small question, has anyone heard of the Pi Processor Destructor? probably havent, but it was a program I built based on a theory in maths that Pi is infinite. Disable rounding, use full pipelines, and let the processor melt itself. the main reason i got a new 486DX.

  • ROFL. but u´d must have run that for quite some time - CPUs usually can run for pretty long times on 100%. btw, (a bit offtopic though) this is a very good way to test how loud the fans of a laptop are. they are usually regulated dynamically and the dudes in the stores tell you stories about how wonderfully quite they are. just ask them to open calc.exe, enter 99999999999! and let it heat up a bit. enjoy how the fan becomes louder and watch the sales dude turn pale <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> (back on topic<img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> some older programming laguages come into my mind now (from my university times): Gofer - a purely functional language, nothing really useful but a cool way to learn VEEEERY complicated recursive algorithms. Also the 1st time i gave (recursive) funtions as paremeters for other functions, which were also recursive (or not?, lol, dont ask, it happened some time ago...). you can build really weirdo things with it that can give anyone a baaaad headache <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> also forgot Pascal - very nice and easy language, perfect for learning programming IMO. and Delphi, being a successor to pascal is also great. I havent messed around with scripting languages like php, javascript and the like. or formatting languages like html (i know that the views are different here, but html isnt really a programming language). im no big code guru, but i can work with the stuff. IMO being a good programmer means to know the basics, the structure how things work and to know from where u can reuse things. copy-paste. Fjord

  • You mentioned Pascal, but what about COBOL and FORTRAN? <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Edited by - esquilax on 11/25/2004 1:15:50 AM

  • PHP v.5, i do website programming with it.

  • hmm The only language which I really used a lot so far is JAVA...its not too bad, but I dont really like the obeject orientated stuff...tho it was getting better. HTML is also fun and I want to learn php now...and prolly C++ as well ...
