    I've been doing html, css, ini, bat, js, au3, vsh, vbs, and been looking into the real stuff e.g. c++, c#

    .. i just know the basics, and that's nothing that will get me a job, or get me money lol :D

    Hello,
    I'm very good in Matlab, LabVIEW, CVI, Visual Basic. I use these for work. I hope to learn to work with VHDL soon.
    I also can code faily well in C.
    Also, long time ago I worked in Pascal and even before that Basic.
    Once upon a time in highschool, I wrote all kinds of evil scripts that simulated formatting of hard drive or wrote residents that installed in memory and made funny random noises (like Balthazar cartoon, only on acid). Now, I do more serious stuff. True work, you might say. Algorithms, GUIs, drivers and stuff.
    Mrk

    Been programming for a living for 8 years (after doing computer science at uni), I've used a variety of languages, but mainly for windows.
    Its mostly been web based stuff.

    Daily. ASP, asp.net, vb, vb.net, Javascript, c# along with sql html/javascript/xml etc...

    Occasionally: PHP (I know enough to debug code), C++/C (for the odd com objects Ive wrote or maintain). I have had to use postgress and even DB++ in the past (bumbled my way through to fix a legacy DB). I even at one point was writting OGL in C in linux (good job not for long as not my forte). Graphics designer just reminded me I know how to use action script for flash as well :|

    Starting my new job soon, moving away from front end coding (which i've now done for 4 years solid) and moving into more back end, developing databases and data processing systems (but I still get to write the front ends now).

    I have A.D.D so I work on the other end of the geek spectrum.

    ASP/vbscript, PHP, Tcl, JavaScript, Perl, Unix shell scripting (so awk, sed, etc), HTML/CSS (if that's coding), SQL (same as above, though these can be very complex) and C (haven't coded in C in years, though). :)

    I use ASP, PHP, Unix shells, JavaScript, and SQL queries daily for work (I'm a web application developer), less often Perl (but it's not uncommon), I used to code in Tcl daily (for a platform called Vignette StoryServer) but that was a few years ago, used C only outside my job under Unix but these days I don't really have much time to.

    I used to dabble in a little C# a few years ago for a company writing some database scanner programs when I was 17, I've since forgotten all of it though. :(

    I do know how to code.

    I chose "Still Learning" as the option above, because I am. I have been coding for years, but it is impossible to know everything so everyone is "Still Learning" That continues to write code.

    I code for fun, and for additional income (see signature ;) )

    I use VB, WMI, VBS, HTML, Java, Bat, PureBasic, and am currently learning Visual C++, C++, and .Net

    I was a programmer during 1987-1997 using dBASEIV under DOS and when Ashton Tate went broke, I switched to Foxpro also under DOS, which was a clone of dBASEIV.
    M$ bought Foxpro and created Visual Foxpro under Windows.

    But I didn't like to be a programmer, so gradually I became an application analyst during those 10 years.
    I wrote some macros in MS Excel, but that wasn't really programming.
    Nowadays, I wouldn't be able to do any programming unless I start learning again and that won't happen.

    For work I use: shell programming in AIX 4.3.3 (ancient), C in AIX 4.2.1 (extremely ancient!), C# (currently coding a DEX/UCS serial interface for all of our locations...going back to the 80's on this one!), Visual C++, PowerBASIC.

    For ButtUglySoftware: predominantly C#

    Have used VB since the DOS days but am much more comfortable in C#.

    I did some coding in a past life. Fortran and some DEC VMS command language stuff.

    My favorite program was very short and I'm not saying how it was used:

    End
    Goto End

    Boy could that puppy eat the cpu cycles.:D

    Well, at various points, I've done machine language (late 70's), asm, Fortran, Basic, Pascal, C, Magic/L, DCL, Matlab, and maybe some other obscure ones. Whatever was needed at the time to get the job done.

    I am a guru in programming with Visual Basic and C/C++:). I can program well with JAVA and FORTRAN, but I do not use them often (not needed for my job). I was an expert in Matlab programming, but not any more.

    Yes. I have written code in many "languages" over the years. Off the top of my head.

    FORTRAN, ASM, BASIC, COBAL, Clipper, C and C++

    xBase such as dBase II, III, FoxPro etc. Visual Basic with Office, specifically MSAccess.

    Various job/script "languages" used with Linux, HP-UX and Vulcan OS's.

    In younger days I was quite dangerous with Forth.

    I only know how to use HTML, unfortunately. I can use CSS and PHP a bit though.

    Just "high-level" coding - xBase, Basic, and bat's. Way back when, I took a semester course in Fortran, but that would probably be totally alien to me now.

    I lucked into an abandonware copy of DBase for Windows at a local shop a few years back, and was surprised to find I can still do quite a bit with it despite brain injury -- lots of trial and error, but of course DBase was always like that. I just use it at home for keeping track of my banking, and lottery history.
