Title: Favorite Programming Language?
Post by: trekiej on March 24, 2019, 11:07:33 PM
Hello.
I am curios about what programming languages people use and what there favorite language is.

My favourite is C# at the moment <<ducks>> though I haven't explored some of the more recent/exotic languages to date.

I am not for sure about why we put Main() inside a Class.

That is a bit of a nuance, it's true. I guess it is there to add some familiarity when declaring a starting point, since everything must be supplied as a class.

I prefer C++, but I use whatever works. C, Java, Pascal, Python, Assembler, Bash, JavaScript, Rexx... On the Amiga, it is mostly C these days.

I guess I still have a thing for BASIC.
Cobol still interests me.

Sadly Microsoft is slacking with VB support in Visual Studio 2019...despite VB being more popular than C#.

I like how they are giving us C# in Blazor ... to replace Javascript ... because people hate Javascript ... because it looks like C ...  So they give us another language that looks like C to replace a language that looks like C...

Morons.
Give us VB 16.0 NOW!

How about Julia?
It suppose to be a high speed language for math.

C# and Delphi for a long time but this past year had to learn Swift (Apple) for a project and really like it, to the point where I wish I could use it for other platforms.

VB.NET on PC and C on the Amiga are my favourites.

Some previous languages I used which I were good:
HiSoft Basic, Easy AMOS and AMOS Pro, Lattice C + SAS C
:-)

I noticed that Java does the same thing, Main() in class.

With programming languages it is often horses for courses but I think it would be fair to say that C# is overall my favourite (and certainly most used) programming language.

I have found that I am only able to be good at 3 languages.  This is probably a limitation on my intelligence! I can (and do) faff with more than 3, but I can only say I am "good" at 3 languages and I don't seem to be able to add any more to the "good" list without dropping one that is already on it.  So here is what I've settled on:

Computer and Web based applications: C#
Embedded Systems: C
Scripting and fun: perl*

* these days perl has fallen out of favour and python has taken its place.  But I have never got on with python so I'll stick to my perl, thanks.

Others that I faff with: elisp, php, javascript, vba

I see myself going back to C64 or C128 Basic.
There are videos on Calculus on the Web.

The Integration portion of Calculus could show a stack of discs being made with an equation that varies with X.
When stacked it would be the volume of the object.

C, D and Python, in that order.

Further down the list, I probably like Javascript better than most, and Java somewhat less.
