I'll love Java forever. It's my favorite language, though I'm sure I'll move on to C++ and C# in time. Those are two languages I'm hoping to learn soon! I'm actually going to study HTML, CSS, C++, and C#, I've already begun on the first two, but undoubtedly I'll move into C++ and C# as they have a close relation to Java.

C++, it can be cross platform, efficient, powerful, and easy to use.

C# is nice for MS and Java is nice for faster dev, and cross platform things but I prefer C++ for it's power. Beside, how many other languages come with all the rope you need to hang yourself?

Yeah, that's totally a good thing.

It makes you more careful and want to learn better practices. Makes it exciting...or not.

I started with C, but it's been so long that I forgot a lot of the finer points of the language.

So, I voted the language I use most. (Java)

Though I love Java, and I appreciate the finer points of C++, I have to say that I like Python the best because I love the whitespace, no need for small things like semicolons :) and the ease of development in general. I love to test and develop different types of algorithms, so it's very good for that!

Python was my first love.

I miss it every day.

So you either learned 2 at the beginning, or didn't like C?

Ruby, by far.

I've been working with Java for yonks, and there are gazillions of things that become really frustrating after a while: no closures (yet), jar hell and classloading nightmares.

And then you switch to Ruby, and you have all that, and you just have to *guess* the method names in classes, rather than browsing through the API, iterators, and you wonder why on Earth is Java so not flexible?

Lately I've also learnt to like C++. After Java, it feels like handling a chainsaw after years of playing with a Swiss knife....

I voted Java just because I know it best.

I have been getting into Python, and I would compare my experience so far with this comic (yes I know KYA posted this not too long ago, but I love this comic)

I have to say Java is probably it at the moment. It's powerful, has great development tools, lots of libraries, and easy to debug.

Python is like...second on the list. It's pretty cool but I'm on the fence with dynamic typing. Seems like it could lead to some funky problems even though I haven't seen them yet. The indenting took a little time to adjust to but it's really a great idea. It makes good formating a mandatory thing which leads to a lot easier to read code.

Haha nice catch. I was tired.

I actually began with Python, but my first real programming experience (i.e. doing more than extended hello world and the like) was with C

C#. I'm just getting into reflection, but when I realized I could do things like
string moop {get{return moop;} set{(some complicated function that can call anything and I [i]never have to re-fresh what 'moop' means in any other part of the program[/i]}}



I was in love.

My favorite language is C++. Did some VB, JAVA, HTML, HTML(Dreamweaver). I don't know why I have been focused more on C++.
According to my professor HTML is not programming.


HTML is not a technical programming language as HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language, so it is not progrmaming, it is just the baseboard of how websites are built instead of programs ran on a computer...

But my favorite language is most likely Objective-C because I love programming for the iphone and iPad, but for Desktop, it would have to be a mix between c++ and Java, but most likely c++ as it is more stable to work with, and Java can be hacked instantly nowadays
