First computer language you learned
|Posted by LeoTheFox, 02-16-2012, 03:08 PM|
|What was the first computer language you learned?
Mine was Fortran 95 if I remember correctly!
Quickly followed by C and many more

|Commodore BASIC. lol

|After I learnt some web programming, HTML, I started learning a little C++.

|Yay! Another high-five for the 80's!
Remember typing in those huge programs from the Commodore magazines and spending no less than half a day finding the typo?

|Has to be HTML for me. I got into programming after first wanting to design a website for an online game - now I am a software developer with experience in C#/Java/C++/PHP/ASP

|BASIC, on a Vtech kid's toy in the 90s
|Posted by Backupplease, 02-16-2012, 06:54 PM|
|Started with VB and then went onto c++. Although VB is pretty much useless it made everything a lot easier to understand.

|Atari BASIC on a 600XL.
Yes, haha. Though, what was worse was that we didn't have a datarecorder at first, so nothing could be saved :-(

|Remember "BASIC Computer Games" by David Ahl? I started on an Apple ][ Plus and had a Coleco Adam at home. Today my home is well-stocked with an Atari 800, C-128, C-64, TRS-80 4P, AT&T Unix PC, and a DEC Rainbow. All fully loaded with peripherals, of course.
So to answer the question, it's a tie between Coleco SmartBASIC and Applesoft BASIC. Today it's Bash / Perl / Python / Java.
Thanks for the flashback to a time when "PR#6" meant something completely different!

|Pascal -> QBasic -> Visual Basic 3.0 -> C++
The first four, miss those days, digging through books to figure stuff out
|Posted by techstubble, 02-17-2012, 06:51 PM|
|TCSH -> Java -> Perl -> PHP -> Python
I still love Perl, it's so versatile for quick solutions.

|C++ > HTML > ASP / PHP . little bit with Python, ASP.NET
|Posted by T-Junk, 02-17-2012, 08:15 PM|
|Same here, but mine was an Atari 800. Back in the days of the actual "floppy" floppy disks.

|I started with Basic then moved to pascal then C then C++/PHP.
|Posted by cygnusd, 02-19-2012, 02:25 PM|
|Borland Turbo BASIC for me
I basically reached its limits that I moved on to the next powerful tool I had access: Turbo Pascal
The rest is history: Basic -> Pascal -> C -> VB -> Java -> Perl/PHP/Python ....

|Mine is Visual Basic,then ==> C Then ==> html ==> php ==> pascal ==> perl ==> c++ ===> c# ===> java ===>phython ===> mysql ..now in oracle.

|I started with HTML then moved on to php. Between HTML & php I stared pearl & python. Now I'm doing C

|Programming languages :
Third party software languages :
There are probably others but they were so short lived I can't find them listed!

|Basic and later Borland Delphi still currently use Embarcadero Technologies Delphi XE2.Borland does not exist anymore.......I also know my way around C++ builder but i dislike C++ (no not because it's a Microsoft language)

|Hmm, good question
1998 - Z80 Asm (Wanted to make Gameboy Games)
2002 - C++ (High School Computer Science)
2003 - Basic/VBasic
2004 - Python
2005 - PHP
I am currently working on learning Java for Android Development

|Wow, I forgot all about QBasic . . . good stuff.
|Posted by HostHamster, 02-20-2012, 07:07 PM|
|My first language was Basic on an Apple IIGS. It was in my middle school computer room. I used to skip other classes to spend more time in there, lol. I still have some of my PrintShop print outs. Back then a color monitor and printer combo was considered cutting edge technology, :-)
|Posted by roastinghosting, 02-22-2012, 05:05 AM|
|QBASIC, VB6, Perl, PHP, Java
You can almost tell someone's age by their language progression
|Posted by bqinternet, 02-22-2012, 06:12 AM|
|It sounds like we got a similar start. I learned BASIC on one of these little single-line computers:
It didn't take me long to then discover GW-BASIC on my dad's computer, and QBasic on my uncle's computer, and I've been coding ever since.
|Posted by mark0168, 02-22-2012, 10:16 AM|
|qbasic is the first lanuage I learned.
|Posted by HostHamster, 02-22-2012, 10:19 AM|
|WOW, that thing is cool. I never seen anything like it. Time to add that to my eBay hit list! Looks like fun :-) The tape drive reminds me of my old TRS-80.
|Posted by BassHost, 02-22-2012, 11:12 AM|
|Started with HTML.
|Posted by Allbert, 02-22-2012, 12:20 PM|
|VB6 but i like networking and i hate programming
|Posted by cselzer, 02-22-2012, 12:23 PM|
I started with qbasic when I was 9. I created a couple text rpgs and shared with my friends.
|Posted by TDunn, 02-22-2012, 12:37 PM|
|it was funny, I started playing around with qbasic, but never really learned a lang until late highschool I think it was pascal or something. Now I know about 40 different lags and can do almost any type of programming. Once you get the logic down your good to go.
|Posted by Larry, 02-22-2012, 08:33 PM|
|C++, but that was in high school. Now I'm more geared towards the web programming languages, although I'll probably hop back onto the software development market soon and pickup C++ again.

|well... id say html but then again html is not a programming language-its a markup language. soooo back in the early 2000's id guess it was js probably. Also thats when i started C more or less but i cant work out which was first. its one of those either way.
|Posted by PlotHost-Max, 02-23-2012, 10:01 AM|
|Pascal . A great language ...

|I started off with Python
|Posted by e-hoster, 03-05-2012, 05:06 PM|
|I remember at school learning some weird language, Im assuming it was kids intro to programming or something. I had to move a turtle (green blob) around a maze, I think, anyway I hated it. Few years on I started HTML, although that not really programming so I moved on to PHP, then C/C++, C#, Java, Prolog plus others. Im thinking ASP.NET will be my next.

|I started off with GW Basic when I was in Grade 4 and moved onto Qbasic at some point. Nibbles.bas and gorillas.bas were a lot of fun
|Posted by edom, 03-14-2012, 12:22 AM|
|First one for me was vb6 from 12 years
|Posted by BurakUeda, 03-14-2012, 12:48 AM|
* I need to post at least ten characters, but I really don't know what to write. I just want to add myself to 'C64 Basic was my first programing language' group but WebHostingTalk wouldn't let me so I need to write this useless note *
