is that a trick question ?

a good profesional (not like me and that dude that keep talking how he made a OS in vb6) will be able to use several langauge. and must be good with them( making for cycle in c,c++ and vb dont count ). that is what a profesional programar is to me. Am i mistaken or there is lots of web programars like 50% of the world program on java, asp.net etc. ?

Chances are you aren't going to see a lot of production work done in brainfuck. Other than that, if it's a mainstream language then some shop will adopt it as their standard. Some languages don't lend themselves to producing software packages, but still find use in solving problems.

At my job, I've used VB, Java, C#, ASP, and ASP.NET for anything end users have to deal with. For job processes, scripts in VBScript, JScript, WSH, PowerShell. Services in C, C++, Perl, Python, Lua, even Tcl.

Understand that most programmers don't develop commercial software for others to buy. Rather, they provide in house solutions or custom contract work to address a company's problems. The tool of choice is the one that best fits the requirements.

Ok, seriously, do you think that we are studying all this programming languages in school just so the teachers can torture us.

Obviously, C++ or Java or C# is being used, it is just a question of "How in God's name did they do this?" Like the games you see online, some game developing company uses C++ developers to create these games.

And since I don't know the latest technology, such as .net, I cannot comment on them.

Depends on what you want to become, a Microsoft developer, then learn .net and WPF and whatever else. Want to be something else, C++ and Java and C# and Python. Want to be a web developer, HTML, PHP, ASP.net and wow, there are so many things that one could learn, and so little time in our lives.

Really, you've forgotten a few languages. I've done work (actual paid programming) in assembly language (over 2 dozen different processors), FORTRAN, Pascal, Basic (not VB), and FORTH. there may be others, but I don't remember them.

Basically, any language that you get paid to use is something used by "professionals."

C++ and Java are probably the most prominent

What Programming languages Do Professionals Use? I want to know what the big people learn, like the people who made firefox, google chrome and skype, I want to know what programming language they learned and made it with, Because I want to learn that and become a professional.

The only reason I put this post in section is because they don't have a topic for random questions.
so anyway can anyone please help?



well you want to learn faster programming and develope amazing applications for Windows and MAC at the same time
use delphi
delphi is the best programming languages easy to learn and faster then any net applications
vb net not harder c# not easy and c++ well you will take a life time to learn it

get with on delphi and see how good you will be


delphi should be the gamer coding because delphi has all sources codes for all and everything
delphi comes from pascal and pascal the source code more complete of the all languages

c++ was invented after pascal and became very popular but i advice you to learn fast easy and become a programmer
within less time and less work
