Thread: Programmers?

    Default Programmers?

    I'm just wondering, are there any programmers who are ABDL, and if so which programming language you use and why?

    There's a fair number of programmer types around.

    For me it's mostly c++ and java for work these days, but I've worked with a whole variety of things from shitty scripting languages to assembly languages for weird architectures. Lately I deal with data distribution and high availability within distributed systems, in particular around stuff such as DDS, and HLA/DIS.

    At home it's usually c++, though I don't do as much hobby coding as I used to, nor do I contribute to open source much beyond occasional patches any more (just don't have time or motivation).

    As to reasons, c++ and java are kinda the default for me, as scripting language type gigs don't pay here very well and tend to be web stuff (which I avoid like the plague) and I live a largely Microsoft free lifestyle (at work and home) so the .NET stack is out (they can open source it all the want, as someone who was around during the 90s I don't think I'll ever trust Microsoft), and I'm even more anti-Apple (so no obj-c or whatever the new thing they've got is), so I don't see a lot of other viable choices (I'm not fond of these flash in the pan languages that seem to pop up every year).

    There is a programming group
    As for me, I use c++ mainly as well. I have been looking at java recently tho for things like android dev.

    Fair enough, I've got a book on both C# and C++, however i never got around to reading the C++ book, as it is terribly written and bores the crap out of me , the C# book is somewhat better and more understandable, but this has nothing to do with C# being better, the C++ book is terrible, only reason why i have the C++ book was because I come from a ANSI C99 background and needed it for reference and wanted to learn new things, but.. sadly that book let me down ahaha, C++ is a good language none the less, these days I'm more of a python programmer.

    C with a little C++ for me. Scratched the surface of C# but haven't had much of a chance to learn it.

    I used to do a little BASIC as a child. Had fun trying to make a rougelike and a ship shooter. They were more like tech demos than games, but it was fascinating and fun. I do a little scripting in graphics design now, so the knowledge ended up being useful.

    I'm in a CS degree, 1 year left for my Bachelors. I'm pretty good at C++, but have also used Python, Golang, learning Java for android, pretty good with Javascript, and php.

    BASIC is one of my favorite programming languages, original basic is kinda dead these days, but its a good language to play around with when your board or for a retro feeling

    HTML, i remember that, I never found it that hard to pick up, it technically was one of my first programming languages, if you count html as a programming language, however I started with C then moved to BASIC, for some stuffed up reason, I remember C being easy as pi, then again I do have a higher iq then average.

    C/C++, Java, PHP, Perl... yadda yadda.

    I was generally more comfortable with C++ in school, but at my job I do mostly Java (Java EE... EJB, JSF, JSP).

    I've played around with apple script to get my mac to do things I want... and objective c. I'm happy you can just use javascript now, as apple script is way too verbose to me.

    I'm not too picky about programming languages. With a good IDE, a lot of the various irritations go away.

    That being said, I think it would behoove most people to learn C/C++ at least at a basic level if they're serious about programming.
