    If you had to choose one language as your favorite, which would it be? Take into consideration the tools, ease of use, power, and overall joy of using it.

    Mine would be C#. It's an easy language (esp coming from a Java background) with great tools. VS.NET makes Windows programming, web programming and web services really simple. Not to mention all of the functionality you get from the .NET framework. I think in the future we'll see all code that can be written in managed code, written in managed code. Also, it's really nice to be able to interoperate between different Microsoft products. For example, I'm currently writing an application that interacts with Active Directory and Word. It all works together rather seamlessly.

    Good thread,

    Even though I'm not a coder, I enjoy ASP and VB.NET the most.

    For a progamming language I like C++. I just wish I was a lot better at it.

    For Processes, I like PHP.

    C++, mostly because it's what I've worked with most.

    C# for me, I like java but it can be very annoying at times...C# seems to be the all around language for me, can do simple to very advanced things with it

    My world has been focused around web dev, so PHP scripting is my language of choice.

    I'm gaining respect for Java. Honorable mention to C/C++ and even Assembler (although I don't code with these as often as I would like due to lack of time).

    I've loved C# ever since i've been working with it. Probably my favorite. Lately been doing some php, and that is way cool for web stuff.

    Sparc Assembly would have to be my favourite programming language. I really enjoyed using it. I absolutely hated Pascal and Turing. Java is alright to learn on, and ansi standard C can be a real bitch. I didn't mind PHP, but I didn't get too far in depth with it.

    SLED: was that book of any help to you?

    It depends on the project. I find Perl to be quite flexible and quick to use. Other times, I'd rather use C++.

    oh man, i totally forgot about that book! I think I scanned through it a few times, and learned the rest from just the web and resources at work. But it wasn't bad for somebody who just is picking up the language! Thanks again.
