I thought this would be a perfect poll to have after the favorite language.

I know of 2, and I'm steadily learning Python which would make it 3. It's not about the quantity of languages, rather, the quality by which you write code in any of those languages. :D

I agree completely that the quality of the code really matters. But each language is another skill we are able to fall back on if the situations becomes that we have to.

The more skills and the better they are taught and utilized the better we are for any number is possible situations in the job market.

Well, 'know' is an open term ... how well do you have to 'know' a language to say yes?

I applied my own criteria: you should be able to write and execute a simple application without resorting to a text to fix syntax errors. In this case, I know: java, c/c++ (could be two, but I'm counting them as one), perl, python, php, HTML/XML ... probably a few others, but I'm not sure they fit my definition.

Now, if we are allowed to use texts, and say that 'know' is just famililarity ... well .. shit .. way more. :)

Sort of in order of familiarity....

Very familiar... Java, C++
Less familiar.... SQL, C, Python, BASIC (yes, sad - not VB), Lisp, spim (mips assembly language)

I didn't count html or javascript, and I need to take a class on XML still (what do you guys think... is it over-hyped?). C is a subset of C++, so I only voted for C++. I've screwed around a little with php and prolog. I like prolog better. ;)

My question also: Does C, C++, and C# count as one? I thought they did because they are so similar. Even without that know a lot...awk, C, SQL, asm (x86), php, Basic (yuk), although some of these I don't consider 'programming' languages but rather 'scripting' or 'markup' languages.

Psuedo code is the best. If you can think out a solution to a problem, you can usually find a way to do it in any language with a good enough reference.

not quite true... doubt that a C flavored psuedo code will get you anywhere if you are trying to write LISP.

I voted two languages. I know C/C++ and some Assembly. (Intel and MIPS)
I am slowly teaching myself Java but until things are stable around home, I don't have much of an incentive to learn it yet.

Languages I look forward to learning: Python, LISP (even though I think it's syntactically ugly), Java and finally C#.

You are correct. I should have added a 0. There are always people getting ready, currently learning, or have not had the opportunity but have the desire to learn.

As picky as SQL is with requirements, I consider it a language. It is very powerful and very easy to learn once the rules are learned.

LOGO is still used in robotics.



though I am not sure how advanced

In Fact, LEGO Mindstorm bots are LOGO driven IIRC.

(LOGO LEGO's :?: )

I know of HTML, JAVA, some BASIC (I fried my old computer with it :!: )

I know only what I learn, however the mind is expandable.

How many of you got your knowledge by yourselves and not a teacher? I did.... maybe that's why I fried my old x86.

Most of us are self-taught. Some of us also went to school and pretended to be taught to get a piece of paper that 'proves' we know what we are talking about.

I've noticed an interesting trend in IT .. many companies ask applicants to write comprehensive exams as the first step in the hiring process. They do this because of the huge inconsistency in teaching, I think. I love it .. I've aced every exam so far. :lol:
