What Was The First Language You Learned?
Posted 07 July 2008 - 10:43 PM
The first I learned was...ASM, I had to use it in a class at school to make two things:
1). I had to make a robot arm pickup a ball and drop it off in a specified location.
2). I had to carve my name into a block of wax.

i wanted to make a game so badly
i gave up on it after the mods (yes, all of em) wouldn't let me post my tutorial pack (tutorial heaven, 58 tutorials...from absolute beginner to advanced.). they said "there is too many tutorials" so they wouldn't let me post it.

C (PIC, Atmel, Rabbit, PC)
Most of those languages I can read/modify/learn. I can write in a few.

it's so sad story ROFLMAO
We used to borrow books from the library and transcribe code for games by hand from the book. We didn't have the floppy drive unit, so we couldn't save games through a reboot.

If I were more gifted, I'd shoot for a better understanding of C++ and start learning Java.
What exactly is PHP anyway?

1) AHK (duh)
2) some basic C++ and Java
7) PHP and SQL <- currently studying

That certainly is a code. I don't think my very first 'script' is, however... :wink:
if you can call it a code :lol:
That's my story...
So my programming languages are: Batch, HTML, JS, PHP, MySQL and AHK.
Oh! I almost forgot: I can program really fast (with all the bloody menus) on a Graphical Calculator, the Casio CFX-9850GC Plus. Some kids in my classes have one or two useful programmes, but not me! I have a list of - let me count them, please wait... - 47! Most are just crap / me being bored, but some are really useful. I even programmed an algorithm to simplify square roots on it (a good algorithm really is nescesary, because the calculator is really slow ) of which I think no-one else has thought of (nothing fancy, though), at least no-one posted it on the interblag. And of course, some games, programmed entirely by me (not like many others in my class, downloading them) like space-invaders.
Sorry this got do long...

3) a fair amount of PHP/MySQL
4) a bit of LOGO (hell yeah!)
5) some RGSS (Ruby Game Scripting System - used in RPG Maker )
I know I'm forgetting something, but w/e

Like engunneer, I too transcribed some programs from a magazine into a vic 20 and commodore 64, but boy was that tedious.
Didn't program again until I took Pascal just for fun in college. Almost instantly changed my major to computer engineering and 16 years out of college still love programming.
