Mine was VB.net lmao.. But what got me into Programming was when i used to hack multiplayer / virtual world games using Packet Editing Software.. After i was hacking those games for a few years (2008-2013) i ended up getting more into coding .. started with VB.net making Maze Games and Clickers.. then moved around everywhere else, Java,C#,C++,PHP,JS,Python,AS2,AS3,Smali etc.. I Still have yet to try Ruby, Perl, Standard C and some others but for now im loving some Actionscript 2/3 as well as some python , i'll move from AS eventually though.. Even though i really like the language


Happy Coding

Turbo (self taught), then Java/C/actionscript(college), More Java/Groovy/Python/JS(real world work)

The fist one was BASIC. I didn't learn it. I used it.
Then Assembler.
Then Pascal.

php but I then moved onto actionscript and then c# for Unity as that is what my current job requires :)

However I learned batch before any of this, like a boss >.>

Started with HTML "programming" as I tried to recreate Pokemon Crater (or what was it called) without even knowing how websites worked. Of course I realized that I needed something like PHP to do that. Though I lazed around for maybe 3 or 4 years not actually learning anything but doing stupid website mock-ups with Microsoft Publisher (took me way too long to remember this name but holy bacon, the nostalgia kicked in hard).

Then my school started teaching me Pascal. Our year was the last year that was taught Pascal so all of my juniors were being taught C++.

Then college came and... I was being taught Pascal again. Hurrah for learning stagnation! At least afterwards we were taught C++, Java, PHP, JavaScript (well, it wasn't exactly being taught - we just used it), and microchip programming with J# (for an Arduino simulator), BASIC and Assembler.

During college, I also wrote scripts in Python and used them on my Raspberry Pi B (the original) to power some "features" on my "pervy cartoon tiddies" tumblr blog like generating the TOP 100 of the "lewds", tag lists and etc. (I did shut it down this year and while you can find it archived here, all of the generated content was offsite so it didn't get archived).

With all of the above mentioned life tragedies, I believe that the first programming language in which I could write my own programs was Pascal (I made a Snake clone in a console window! My first game! Yay!). While I had touched PHP before, I had zero clue what I was doing then - just copy & paste code from tutorials, glue it all together and see how nothing works.

I tried HTML for like a week when I was 14 so i don't usually count that, then Lua for a week to try and make a Garry's Mod gamemode so I don't count that either. Eventually I decided to actually learn something so I tried out HaxeFlixel and just stuck with it for a while.

I think it was plain C.
Parents sent me to a summer course before high school who had computer science as "minoring".
At school I learned Pascal though.
Actually... you could say Logo was my first language to some extent, but I didn't really learn much of it...

I started learning C++ with Madushan 2 months ago. I found him on https://www.tutoronline.net/ . He is a great teacher and always well prepared. He quickly understood my strength and weakness and where I need improvement. Very nice teacher.

My first programming language was C# which I learned four years ago, two years later I learned C++ along with web-development languages like HTML,CSS and JS. This year I am currently learning F# and Haskell.

I've never been proficient with any, but my first was just Windows batch files. Made a short text-based rpg with not a lot of rng involved.

Second language I learned, and still use, was GML (Game Maker Language) which is mildly based on Delphi. I've been using it for a handful of years (as a hobby, not seriously), and can make 1st and 3rd person camera perspectives and d3d primitives.

I also picked up RGSS when I got RMVX Ace, but only enough to customize menu layouts and augment equip slots.

I gave Python a go for all of 2 days. Haven't touched it since.


I was born ready. My eyelashes, alas, were not.

C# was my first, I found it a great starting language because you get to learn all of the syntax and requirements that functions have without having to worry about garbage collection.

I'm not a programmer by trade, I do level design which involves mission scripting so I don't need to know much about low level programming languages. Unreal Visual Scripting is something I'm learning more of now since the industry is going towards more visual scripting so everyone can get their hands dirty easier.

I made non-interactive pages with HTML when I was a kid, but I don't consider HTML a real programming language. I did make some "games" with Java as a kid before I fully understood programming (just point and click stuff).

In college, they made us use C in the intro programming course, then you had to choose C++ or Java for the core CS classes. I chose C++, which is great for learning programming, but not so good on the job market.

At work, I primarily use Java, JavaScript, and SQL. I'd like to see someone write a good game with that last one...

C/C++
then Java
then C#

I tried getting more into C/C++ a while back, but since my free time is limited I didn't really get too far. Whenever I need to write a small program, I chose C# now, since it's the one I know best.

Technically actionscript 2 but in terms of actual programming (considering that my experience with AS2 was copy and pasting code from NG tutorials) it was visual basic.

I've always used Actionscript personally, although we did learn Visual Basic at school.
All we wrote were calculator and name programs, which were boring af. -_-


I'm not that good at signatures.

VB was my first experience ever with coding, but AS3 is the first language I mastered. From that I moved on to Haxe and C#.

Mine was HTML. Is that a language? I dunno....but that's where I started. Actually...my interest in coding started when I saw my fist amateur website. "I can do that" is what I thought. So I started with Word '97 actually. I didn't start with an ambition to write code, I started with an ambition to make websites. That led me to htmlgoodies.com, which led me to learn javascript. So, I suppose my first language was javascript. Since, I've learned C#, PHP, and Python. But HTML, CSS, and JavaScript make up the majority of what I write, regardless of the supporting back-end tech...

btw, I'm a professional web-developer today...that's what I do.

BASIC. Even though it was 2005 already, we were taught it at school.
