It has come to my attention that a large number of our group are capable of some form of programming. So I wish to see how lopsided our community is.

--

By know I mean, "able to write a 'small' stand-alone program in the language," as per the suggestion of Lanthanide.

You forgot Pascal. The first language I seriously programmed in.
I "know" (can write simple programs) C / C++, however oftentimes when I read sources for more complicated programs I have no clue what they're trying to do, so I'm not sure if that counts, but I ticked it regardless.

I had to erase a few that I would have liked to explicitly mention because polls only allowed me to select 10 as the maximum number of picks.



None.

Just here for the pie

I could probably look at any source code aside from Assembly and know what's going on, but that doesn't mean I would be able to use the language.

I know C# and dabbled a bit in Actionscript prior to learning C#.




Jul 2 2012, 11:20 pm Lanthanide Post #5



I would personally have used a definition of "know" as "able to write a 'small' stand-alone program in the language". With your existing definition I could have ticked C# (but didn't).



None.

I don't really consider html a "programming language" when it stands for HyperText Markup Language

For the "Other" vote, I know some Scheme, which is a dialect of LISP.

It's too closely related to leave out.



None.

I've used python, basic, and MAYBE C for two weeks each, but that was years ago. I wouldn't say I remember much at all. Does that qualify?

Quote from Sacrieur
By "know" I mean able to read source code and know what it's trying to do, in case that wasn't clear.
Oh, then put me down for almost everything. That's an awful place to draw the line. By "know," I will assume you mean minimum that I could create a functional program or website with a scope similar to Sen using the technologies.

I'm pretty proficient in C# and Java. HTML/CSS isn't really a programming language, as xboi mentioned (or else I could say I'm also an XML and JSON "programmer"). I "know" JavaScript (more like jQuery and Ajax), and I'm quite familiar with T-SQL. I've worked with PHP before, but I disliked it and never picked it back up.

I much prefer learning and practicing architectural patterns over actual languages, though.

I use jquery a lot over regular javascript, I think of it as the lazy version of javascript :D

Updated the polls and changed the prerequisites to Lanthanide's suggestion.

>be faceless void >mfw I have no face

I've worked with quite a few languages when I think about it...I wouldn't call myself an expert at any of them though, although once I worked out the basics of one it was pretty easy learning others.

I got a feeling.....wooohoooo..... that tonight html is gonna rule




Jul 3 2012, 12:37 am Fire_Kame Post #16

a left leaning coexistence nut

As a point of conversation....what language is the 'easiest' to learn of these (after html/css). I am interested in learning server administration and database administration, and I think I know what languages are associated with those (like SQL), but I want a good place to start, and resources that would allow me to teach myself or self pace the courses. I'd like to go to school, but unless I find a weekend course I am not holding my breath. I taught myself HTML and CSS using trial and error and http://www.w3schools.com/ .

I used HTML Dog to learn HTML/CSS, and it's pretty damn good. It seems like PHP is the next thing for me to jump on -- and that really introduces you into real programming.



None.

Alright, what's the best tool to learn PHP? There are a lot of resources out there for it. :s

I do stuff and thingies... Try widening and reducing the number of small nooks and crannies to correct the problem.

Forgot to check other.
I know COBOL which isn't on the list.

I know a bit of LaTeX, but not enough to state that I truly know it...
I only used it to hand in my solutions for practice tasks. It was using a given template for the most part. :S

edit:
I don't "know" assembly that much that I can write a standalone program, but I know the basic instructions and wrote short programs in school.

I'm sorry. :P Did you actually have to try to use it?
