    Arrgh! I thought I had come up with an original name!

    But google only finds 90 pages for "omicron basic" and 1200 pages for "omikron basic" so I guess it isn't that common (anymore?).

    The first language I learned was Pascal, learned it from a friend of mine who was studying computer science those days and learned it at university. But the language I really started learning programming was C.

    Well after working with HTML for a month or so, I wanted all the "cool" features which could only be done in javascript; like scrolling text in the status bar, mousetrails, prompts, etc. After cutting and pasting JavaScript for awhile, I found a tutorial on www.webmonkey.com about Javascript and then bought a book.

    I forget exactly how I heard of C/C++, but I STFW and found this place. So I guess my first language was JavaScript.

    ICL 1900 Assembler and Fortran IV at about the same time.

    For years after that, Fortran-66 then -77, (and a little Coral-66 and COBOL, but the less said about that...).

    C and Pascal, and all the others were later.

    yes, but there were several other languages people made for it.. NQC was sort of like C (tho a lot easier). there was also a 'Quite C', and i think someone got java to run on it.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I taught myself some VB back in eighth grade, now i don't remember any of it.

    I started learning C++ last spring semester. I'm trying to teach myself Java through online tutorials right now actually.

    edit:: actually i'm still learning C++, APCS class through high school, i love that class.

    edit:: off topic: I've noticed that I have tendencies to type semicolons more and double colons more and some other programming related stuff more now.
