    My first language was BASIC, and I remember coding in elementary school on an Apple II and a TI calculator.

    Yes, I'm getting old :cool:

    Since then I've learned many languages including Java, C#, Ruby, and Python.

    Well, the first programming language I tried to learn was Python, but I didn't get very far with that. The first language I think I really learned to a reasonable degree of proficiency is C, and I've been enjoying it a lot.

    C is pretty enlightening to use, and tends to make simple problems more satisfying when you solve them from scratch.

    The first programming language I learned was Ada. I learned it as my first programming subject in college, as a Telecommunication Engineering student. I had totally no idea what it was about, and I felt quite disappointed as no one else seemed to know about this language. I was hoping to learn a language which is more popular, such as C or Java at that time. A friend told me he heard of the name "Ada" from an article about history of programming.

    I was glad I finally learned C, C++ and Java in later semesters which I think they are still helpful to me until today. Perhaps Ada has set a good foundation for me to learn programming, but I would prefer to learn C or Java as my first programming language as Ada was too difficult for me to understand as the first language.

    I've learnt VB .Net as my first programming language, I heard about it from my school books, then I started to learn other programming languages as well such as C++, Java and Python. It became easier to learn programming languages once you get the programming logic, all you have to do is to study, and learn the syntax and you're all setup. I know couple of programming languages ranging from web applications development, to cross-platform application development.
