    First computer language you learned

    What was the first computer language you learned?

    Mine was Fortran 95 if I remember correctly!
    Quickly followed by C and many more

    Remember typing in those huge programs from the Commodore magazines and spending no less than half a day finding the typo?

    Has to be HTML for me. I got into programming after first wanting to design a website for an online game - now I am a software developer with experience in C#/Java/C++/PHP/ASP

    Started with VB and then went onto c++. Although VB is pretty much useless it made everything a lot easier to understand.

    Yes, haha. Though, what was worse was that we didn't have a datarecorder at first, so nothing could be saved :-(

    Remember "BASIC Computer Games" by David Ahl? I started on an Apple ][ Plus and had a Coleco Adam at home. Today my home is well-stocked with an Atari 800, C-128, C-64, TRS-80 4P, AT&T Unix PC, and a DEC Rainbow. All fully loaded with peripherals, of course.

    So to answer the question, it's a tie between Coleco SmartBASIC and Applesoft BASIC. Today it's Bash / Perl / Python / Java.

    Thanks for the flashback to a time when "PR#6" meant something completely different!

    Pascal -> QBasic -> Visual Basic 3.0 -> C++

    TCSH -> Java -> Perl -> PHP -> Python

    I still love Perl, it's so versatile for quick solutions.

    Same here, but mine was an Atari 800. Back in the days of the actual "floppy" floppy disks.
