I have a survey for you programmers out there and I would like some answers.
Please help me out, some nice responses would be much appreciated.

What programming languages have you used already?

AS3,C++,PHP

I use AS3 more then anything. I use it because I can create browser games that are very easy to get people to view rather then having to download anything. While currently I only make browser games with AS3 I plan on trying to make mobile games soon using adobe air.
It's also probably worth mentioning I make all of my games with Flixel.

Sure, I'll bite.

Most frequently I write Python, ActionScript 3 or PHP.
Here's a small breakdown of what I do with each:

Python
Anything web development related that is being created for my own personal projects.
I also typically use Python for any Project Euler challenges.

ActionScript 3
Pretty self-explanatory: I use it for creating Flash applications.
I only ever make games with Flash though.

PHP
I'm employed as a web-developer for a large company in Canada, and this is the language we use for our web development; nothing fancy. Outside of work I literally never touch PHP.
It's a shitty language, and I hate writing it, but I get paid to do it.

Yes, more responses, more faster my survey project will get done faster !
Thanks guys for your answers, this survey is still ongoing for I need to have at least 15 programmers to answer it.

Sure.

What programming languages have you used already?

x86 ASM, Turbo ASM, C, OOC, C++, Python, Perl, PHP, Java, AS2, AS3, JS, a bit of C#, GLSL (OpenGL) and Direct3D.

Which of the programming languages that you've mentioned do you usually use and how do you use it / what purpose?

x86 ASM - as a part time demoscener, this assembly language is highly important for coders like us who want to save space for their 64kb, 4kb & below. I spend my spare time to master my skills at this language as much as possible.

C++ - currently working for a large tech company that it adores C++ so much that I have to keep my aggressive opinion to myself toward the hatred at C++. Another reason why I use C++ is because of OpenGL.

OOC - stands for Object Oriented C. It's a direct replacement for object oriented language C++. OOC means for small project and quick implements in budgeted development. I use OOC for personal Linux development. I also have personal opinions and conflicts between OOC and C++, especially during the debugging moment...

Python - what I call it, a Swiss Army knife in programming world. I am a penetrating tester so I use Python (also Perl or PHP) mostly for writing quick attack scripts for exploitation.

PHP - a worthy language for web development due to its speed but shitty computing security. Surprisingly most vulnerable sites I ever encountered are written in PHP (Perl and Python-made scripts are much secure). I believe this is not a coincident...

Not to start a derail, but why was that surprising to you?
Remember that the PHP developers are the people who do incredibly stupid things like this.

U really like pointing out php flaws. I don't mind tho.

OT:
I only use PHP/SQL/Javascript/jQuery for serious business. I've used some others while in school, like qbasic, pascal and maybe some more I don't recall as they were shitty and useless.

In the old days: BASIC, x86 ASM, some Pascal and Fortran.

Currently: C, C++, Java, JavaScript, SQL (Postgre, Oracle & MySQL), some PHP, Perl & Python.

I don't think these count, but I list them anyway: HTML, HLSL, GLSL, some OpenCL & ActionScript 3.

Free Basic (QB light compiler - cross between QB 1.1 and FB)

I'm not sure if you can count most of those, but that's everything i've written that requires some sort of code.

AS3 - Games (web or download)
PHP - Web development and "online" games
MySQL - Permanent secure storage on a server
Bash - I run linux as a server (CentOS) and as one of my OSes on my personal computer (Ubuntu)
HTML 4.01 - Web development


Programming stuffs (tutorials and extras)
PM me (instead of MintPaw) if you're confuzzled.
thank Skaren for the sig :P

In order of most frequently used to rarely used:

AS3
I use FlashDevelop to develop games. I also know my way around the Flash IDE, any version from Flash 5 to Flash CS5. I use AS3 in animation projects from time to time to help control the menu, add bitmap effects and masking effects, and just do cool things with the loading screen.

PHP + JavaScript
I make websites. Here's one of them: http://www.tapskill.com/art

Java
I'm in college for web development, but the only language the school seems to want us to use is Java. I have made a lot of school-oriented applications with Java and NetBeans.

Python
XBMC scripting mostly. I also mess with Django from time to time, and I ported my AS2 Tetris clone to Python 2.4. Later, I thought about rewriting my Tetris clone in AS3, but I was too lazy to do it. lol

C++
I toy around with C and C++ from time to time to learn new things. I never use these languages for anything practical, but I think it would be cool to make an Ogre3D game someday.

C#
I am learning C# alongside Java. I was planning on using Unity for game development, so I thought knowing a lil C# could help. Not sure if I want to use Unity, though. Not really sold on the idea yet.

Quite a few! Here are the ones I use currently:

Objective-C, C#, C++

Languages that I have used in the past:

Actionscript 2, Visual basic, Delphi, C, Java

Which of the programming languages that you've mentioned do you usually use and how do you use it / what purpose?

Well, right now im working on a project in c#. Me and a team are making an iPad game using the Unity engine, though the past year I have been using Objective C for a similar purpose (With Box2D and Cocos2D). C++ for me is generally used for any university-related projects.

I find c# the easiest to use, but I would say im most confident in Ob-C, but I have a feeling that c# is going to overtake that soon. I pretty much just make games, thats all I use languages for :)
