When you make a program from BBcode, I'll be impressed.

Sure, why not.  

I've been programming professionally for 9 years with an extended college stay (two degrees) and a handful of internships.  I've taught directly or indirectly in the vicity of 600 students at the University and on the side for fun.  I've subsequently recommended a number of my students for hire (wasn't in a hiring position then) and worked with them professionally.  I knew HTML back when that actually meant something.

Languages:
- C/C++:  strong proficiency
- Ruby/Python/Perl:  low proficiency
- Java/Pascal/VB:  worked with these a long time ago; they've all evolved since then
- x86/cell assembly:   familiarity

This weekend I hope to be building some modding tools in C#.  

My strengths are in optimization (memory, speed), large scale architecture, and general debugging.

then i found FPS creator(very boooring)

I've been getting into working with PyGtk, a GTK library for python. Quite interesting, and easier to create a GUI python program than TKinter.

I dabble in a bit of HTML. I also started using c for dark pro a bit. But that never went anywhere. I messed around with game creator, which is terrible. So terrible, in fact, that... Well.. I don't know.. But it's terrible..

i started to learn c++ and php
Title: Programming skills
Post by: cdvader on August 29, 2009, 11:57:58 PM
I know the basics of HTML, C++, and Python. However, I guess I can say I'm pretty good at scripting M&B. (Although nearly not as good as some masterminds like kt0 :P)

My plan currently is this: Finish high-school, go to a "vocational school" and take Programming as my profession, after that I'll go to a college where I'll learn Programming even further.

That all is, of course, when fate shines on me.

Post by: Jubal on September 06, 2009, 10:05:38 AM
Programming is a good thing to do. Really skilled programmers will always be in demand in the computer age.

I'm really a lightweight programming-wise, just a web scripter. But hey.

I have a basic idea of HTML (thanks to Jubal) and that's it.
Title: Programming skills
Post by: Calisthenis of Green Day on January 15, 2011, 06:26:46 PM
Basic HTML.
Started when I was messing around with BBCode in the phpBB (http://www.try-phpbb.com/30x/) test board. Then I got Notepad ++ (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/) and started making pages of an imaginary website.
Title: Programming skills
Post by: Phoenixguard09 on January 15, 2011, 07:05:00 PM
Bit of HTML.  Only what my ICT teacher managed to hammer into my head.  

Decent with Python.
Title: Programming skills
Post by: Jubal on January 15, 2011, 08:01:22 PM
You were lucky, our ICT teachers here rarely seem to know HTML.

I really should learn python or another real programming language... I doubt I will for some time yet though 'cos it would take too long.

:knight: I'm working on C++, but can't get software compatible to allow me to write, compile, then link it all together. I can get all of it, but I can't get it to work with c++ or with each other.
On other things, I know a bit on making cutscenes and game graphics.
Apart from that nothing digital.
Title: Programming skills
Post by: Jubal on February 27, 2011, 10:50:20 PM
If you haven't programmed much before learn a scripting language first - much simpler usually but you learn the principles and techniques. Or try python, which is apparently insanely simple by comparison and pretty easy to get open-source stuff for.
Title: Programming skills
Post by: Son of the King on February 28, 2011, 05:06:08 AM
Python is a great language to learn the basics of programming with. It's simple enough that it can easily be understood by someone new to programming who just wants to learn the basics, and yet is still powerful enough for more complex programs (albeit a bit slow). For example, to print a string onto the console:
Code: Python
 
print("this is a string")

Code: C++
 
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
    {
        cout << "this is a string";
        return 0;
    }

So Python looks a bit like Lua.

Alright, time to show off *cracks knuckles* (also I'm interested in boosting response to this thread: nice to see what people are learning/comfortable with).

Main Language: Java
Secondary Language: C#
Other known languages: Prolog, C, C++, Python, Ruby, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Basic, Visual Studio languages.
Learning: PHP, Lua.

So my main language is what I use for my degree (and my dissertation), my secondary language is the one I use for games development in Unity, and the other languages are ones I've picked up along the way.
Title: Re: Programming skills
Post by: comrade_general on April 22, 2014, 05:48:32 PM
Impressive! :o

C# is what I supposedly learned in college but I couldn't tell you the first thing about it now. :P

They even taught us some COBOL.

So, I guess I'll update my list...

Some vague knowledge: Lua, Ruby (all knowledge I have of this makes me want to burn it)

I'd like to start contributing to, well, something. I have the time, just not the skill set... YET! If not a project, then could you fine folks point me somewhere I could possibly pick up some skills in the "programming" department?

Thanks!

Head on over to the Exilian Academy if you're interested in programming 'lessons' - there are some resources in the Archives on C++ and I'm running a web programming course starting very shortly!

It's probably about time I posted here.

Current
HTML
CSS (a little, usually after checking the reference book)
C/AL (for work; it's the proprietary language in Microsoft's Dynamics NAV product; based on Pascal)
SQL (a bit rusty)

Out of date/forgotten
Visual Basic (various flavours)
C
Unix shell scripting
Informix 4GL (proprietary language on Unix)
Pascal
Fortran
Basic (various flavours as far back as the early 1980s)
