Languages I have programmed in:
BASIC (circa TRS-80)
FORTRAN 77
C/C++
SML
UNIX scripting
Perl
SQL*PLUS (on Oracle 9i)
Visual Basic for Applications (Excel)
Java (a small bit)
HTML (a little bit)

My favorite data construct: the linked list. Nothing like creating your own structure and allocating memory only as it is needed, instead of a big block that may never get used. Many programmers don't like having to use so many pointers, but I think once you learn to visualize the structure, the pointers are cake.

Oops, forgot PLC-I, -III, and-V. (RSLogix on the -V).
And I had a class in undergrad that was machine and assembly programming on the Motorola 68HC11 (?, been a long time) chips.

Visual Basic, SQL Server. Not a real programmer by any means, but working at it daily. Right now I'm building a VB app to act as a front end go-between for a medical practice management system's Electronic Medical Record component and its SQL Server 2000 database back end.

C, C++, HTML, and thats about it ;) Enough to get me by, or basically write fun pseudo-code when I'm mocking a software company.

I took C/C++ courses in high school and learned quite a bit, that was almost 5 years ago and now I don't remember squat... Wish I would have kept my studies up and maybe I'd remember some stuff :lol:

I also know a little Java (self-taught)
HTML (self-taught and some courses)
PHP and MySQL (very little)
TI-BASIC on a TI-83 calculator. Made quite a few little programs on that thing in math class :lol:

Nothing really, I dip into C, Java, and HTML. Never took the time to sit down and figure it out. I want to go into VBS, Unix, C++....but hey look what I said before. I also when you had to use DOS could do a bunch, but like I said I havn't used it for that much for years.

I'm pretty good at BASIC and have designed a few games for my Calculator, so anyone who has some questions on that I'd be happy to answer.

I also know a limited amount of HTML and Action Script for Flash. C++ and Java I barely know anything in but I do know a very small amount becuase I script for Counter-Strike .

Did some programming in:

Turbo Pascal
Delphi
Visual Basic (not .NET)
JAVA (j++) (still trying to become a fan of this :-) )

DBs:
SQL Server / MS Access

btw: great idea to bring up a programming forum! :P

After learning that being an Accountant isn't for me... I started learning programming (starting on the Mainframes - yes, with punched cards)

BAL-Assembler (sometimes called 360-Assembler)
Fortran
PL/1 (pa31svt, this is a language that is a natural for linked-lists)
COBOL
JCL (Job Control Language) mostly JES2/JES3 (JES=Job Entry Substream)
Easytrieve
Focus (Information Builders)

And have experience interfacing with various data structures, such as:
ISAM , VSAM
IMS , IDMS
DB2 (mostly Mainframe, although other versions are quite similar)

Using interfaces like:
IEBISAM
IDCAMS
SPUFI
CICS (this now supports direct Web I/O, I think Ebay is using this now)
QMF
CLIST
REXX
and myriad various utilities (eg;Sort, Expediter, Intertest, etc.)

I started using PC's with a Sinclair Z-80 (2K), in BASIC
TI-99 Basic (hey anyone remember 'Tunnels of Doom' ?)
Finally IBM made a PC !! 4.7 Mz DOS 1.1 BASIC, BASICA, Turbo Pascal, IBM PC Assembler (Compiled BASIC - which does not run under current Windows, thank you Bill Gates)
DOS 2 meant I needed a Hard Drive (30 Mb - a really big one)
also played with Visual Basic, worked supporting TCPIP Networking while doing Mainframe programming.

And now with what I am learning here on motherboards.org, I am becoming dangerous with hardware as well (but I ramble enough without getting off topic).

This list is far from complete, but I think that you get the idea. I like reading technical manuals (a habit I started in the Army, when I worked as an Explosive Ordinance Disposal specialist - which involved a great deal of Technical training [started with 'the Lever' and months later Nuclear Weapon Design]).

Will this thread be a 'Sticky' ?

T :D m

I have done some programming in VB 6. It's definitely a lot easier than C++.
