Feel free to execute me for not including whatever backwater programming language you find your favorite.  :P

Re: Favorite Programming Language
I love the more esoteric languages, just because they force you to think differently.

Of these, Befunge and its relatives are my favorite. Multidimensional programming is crazy. BeQunge is my editor of choice for these.

If you're interested in weird programming languages, check out the EsoLang wiki.

Re: Favorite Programming Language
Difficult to say, if I want to knock something together to do a job quickly and then get ignored as part of the main project, I'll use Java or the like, if I'm looking for something more 'permanent' I'd be more inclined to head for a compiled language.

C/++ is pretty much all I know, other than that one semester of *shudder* Scheme.

I used to like Delphi, then switched to C++, now I'm liking C#.  Not a big fan of perl, php, python, don't like non-compiled weakly typed languages.

Re: Favorite Programming Language
It all depends on what you're doing.  I don't think I'd ever use C-anything for a website.

Exactly, the right tools for the right job. For example, Visual Basic is good for small applications that can be used for moderately complex tasks where speed isn't vital, but the UI takes a while to set up, so it can be a pain in the arse to create very simple programs in, you can spend longer figuring out the Event Driven side of the program than actually performing the task you wanted.

C, C++ are too slow/laborious to develop for the little "projects" of mine.

How are you finding C#? I'm hearing a whole swathe of opposing opinions on it, some think that it is just as flexible as C++ and that the auto garbage system is a dream come true, others are claiming that the garbage collection means that it really should be classed as a 'C' language because it's considerably slower than it's counterparts.

Re: Favorite Programming Language
:bump:

I know C++, and that's about it. Its covered in my module. I also know OpenGL, but it still comes under C++. I know a little AS3, and Java to boot. Plus, we had to learn Python, but I didn't really pay attention during class.

Oh, and next year, we have to learn DX, apparently. And a little birdy told me we have to learn cell programming and possibly C# and XNA.
