    I've been into programming for less than a year now so I don't have that many languages on my belt.

    My main strength at the moment is web development. I'm fluent in HTML and CSS and I know enough PHP + Javascript to build pretty much anything.

    When working on large projects I still have to do a lot of learning though. I make several stops at the W3C, Stack Overflow, etc. when I'm working. I'm sure this will pretty much always be the case no matter how much I learn though. When it comes to programming, even the senior developers learn new stuff everyday.

    I'm also learning C# at the moment. I have a lot to learn but I'm picking it up fairly quickly and know enough to make basic games, apps, etc.

    So what sort languages do you know?

    Are you learning any at the moment?

    I know a bunch of old ones, that are no longer of any use, but I have an arduino and it is close enough to C++ and C## that I can get it to blink. Now the Intel Galileo is a horse of a different color and I have got it to boot, but need to do a ton more to figure out how to get windows on it, and then to port over some code to make it look like and arduino.

    similarly the little raspberry Pi is cool and the newer more powerful version is out now, for the same price as the Pi.

    Most of my professional experience in coding is with Visual Basic (everything the ancient 1.0 for DOS to .NET), some xBase (dBase, FoxPro, etc.), database systems (Access, SQL server, etc.), and naturally some web-based technologies (e.g., HTML, etc.). I've done a little code work in C, but I didn't stick with it for very long.

    One I would really like to dive into if I had the time is Xojo. It is a BASIC dialect that compiles cross platform (Win32, Mac OSX, Linux, and web).

    I am currently a computer science major and I am learning c++. I enjoy it, but I cant stand pointers! Oh well, thats all that c++ is basically. We are learning java in a few semesters, so im excited about that!

    I may not be as good with you guys with programming languages, but one thing I really want is the ambition to learn these languages. I've been on Code Academy recently and my motivation has been really killing it. Is it really worth it to major in something like programming with all the competition out there? I'm not too sure myself. :/

    I am a computer science graduate and the programming languages I know are Visual Basic, C, C++, Java, C# and Cobol. The first programming language I learned is Visual Basic and this is mainly the reason why I choose Computer Science. The one programming language I enjoy the most is C# because of it's drag and drop feature and simple GUI (Graphical User Interface) which makes it more easy to use. I mainly use C# for developing desktop applications like turn-based games and information systems. For me, learning a new programming language is optional but practicing and mastering a certain programming language is definitely a must.

    I used to know PHP fairly well. Good enough to fix things that were broken, but not quite advanced enough for other things. Right now, I'd like to learn C#. Unity 5 being made free(er) has renewed my interest in programming. Sadly, I've got a lot of things going on right now, so that my programming skills aren't progressing as fast as I'd like them to.

    I know my native language, it is logical, but also Spanish and English, the two languages I learned more from television, I looked at some serials and was able to learn something from both.
    But still the basic language to be able to learn all your Internet is English, not the language I do not think I could learn something, how can you know would be to download a picture, if we think that many do not know how to even this.

    I'm fluent at C, C++, and Python. It's been a while since I programmed anything in Python so I might need some memory refresher whenever I need to use it, but I'm programming in C and C++ quite frequently. I'm even taking a programming course right now for my Electrical Engineering major in university, I was hoping they'd teach the course in Java, but they chose C for some reason or another. I don't feel like I'm gaining much from it to be honest.

    As of now, I'm trying to learn PHP and HTML, and I'll probably jump to MySQL right after. I'm interested in web design in general so I probably won't stop there. Java and JavaScript are a priority as well once I have free time.

    Hello,
    I actually know the two main coding programs. The two I know would happen to be HTML and CSS. I have been wanting to learn Javascript but I have not had time to do so. So I am hoping in the near future I will be able to learn it!

    I would run away at the first instance whenever I had to learn any programming language. I am really, really poor at it. However, I still remember the time I was forced to learn at least one programming language was in my junior college days. The highest level I could ever achieve was couple of "printf, scanf" commands in C++. Apart from it, I learned a bit of industry-level PLC programming while pursuing my graduation.

    My programming expertise ended with the end of the Commodore. Back then (mid 80's) I had learned simple programming which enabled me to build games but that was the most of it. I do want to learn some of today's languages but it's almost confusing figuring out where to begin and on which platform.

    Well, Programming for me is just a hobby so I don't know a lot of languages, I'm a software coder and I know only four languages: C#, vb6, vb.net and some Pascal. But I only use vb.net to release people's requests.

    These days, I'm trying to know how to handle java so I can code advanced types of software applications.

    I am relatively experienced in HTML and CSS - even though those are not actually programming languages, contrary to popular belief; they are mark-up languages. HTML and CSS are simply ways of adding context and structure to things. I currently know PHP and Javascript, but that is all. I am in the process of learning Java. (Note: Java and Javascript are not the same thing)

    Right now, I am very proficient in Java and Python. As of recently, I am getting into a new language called Processing, developed by MIT folks. This language is mainly used for graphics, and although it uses Java syntax, it isn't that strong in Object Oriented Programming. I am also familiar with XML code because of my experience with coding for Android apps (using Java). I plan to be computer science major in college so I will probably have to learn a lot more.

    I have been learning HTML and CSS, it has been really fun and interesting. I am in love with coding and programming languages, I feel that I can do a lot of things, and it has been less than a month since I started the course.
    I have a intermediate level of knowledge in these two languages that work together pretty well, and I am planning to learn PHP, Python, C++, Java and more.
    it has been really fun and I think I am capable of doing much better and learning many more programming languages to create something AMAZING!!the website I am currently using to learn HTML and CSS is this ---> http://www.codecademy.com. I highly recommend it for the ones that want to learn to code and don't know where to learn programming languages.
