What is your favorite programming language?

    I personally enjoy writing in Ruby, but I also enjoy Perl. I have tried Python, but only a little but of it so I can't really say whether or not I like it.

    I had to translate a PHP script into Ruby so I had to learn enough PHP to understand what the script did. From what I learned, I didn't really care for it, but I think that's a hasty thought as I really learned what I needed to figure out what the script did.

    What are your favorite programming languages? Which are ones you don't particularly care for?

      I have a soft spot for C, as I taught it at uni for many years, but I preferred using C++ (because it is object oriented). I do like Perl for quick hacking - especially for CGI scripts on websites, or for parsing text-based files.

      I never particular cared for LISP - I could not get my brain around the semantics or the syntax. And MIPS (assembly language) was just plain tedious, but straightforward.

    Language agnostic here so i don't have extreme opinion about any language. I prefer to get work done quickly.

    If i have to list favorite languages without being too touchy then this is what i can think of.

        Aww man I was going to say that - what about Turbo Pascal and Turbo Basic.

        What is really funny is that I wrote a Fortran emulator in Turbo Basic back in the 80s for a school project!

    I earn my living writing PHP code.
    That is what I am best at. I also use databases and SQL.
    Javascript for all possible "sick" employer's ideas :-)

    Lately I started to learn Java. It seems much more advanced than anything I encountered so far, and as equally complicated.

    Back, some decade ago I started with Python and shortly after that initial playing moved to ASP (VBscript).
    However, I abandoned plain PHP coding and now happily use CI framework.

    I tried learning to program C++ once but that was not something I got into very well.

    In terms of what I use most often, Perl.

    In terms of gooey eyed love, assembly.  Have you read "The Zen of Assembly Language"?  A bit dated now but still grabs me.

    Well this amateur only knows html...I know that isn't programming and felt overwhelmed with all the choices when trying to figure out which one would be easiest to learn.

      HTML 5 is pretty much an improvement today. In fact it is replacing Flash on many websites.

    I have to agree with skyfire, here. I would move to consider HTML to be a programming language nowadays.

      I'll third that and we'll dispense with a vote: it is.
