COBOL, if you consider it a language. If not then C. ;)

Oops, I forgot that back in third or fourth grade I did a little apple II basic at school.

Programmed a lot of basic on my old apple II computers, then stopped writing for 14 years, then just picked up C++ about 4 months ago.

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.

Didn't that have a stupid little drag and drop programming tool?

I had that.

>Didn't that have a stupid little drag and drop programming tool?

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.

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.

C++, then started Java, but its too gay for words. Learned (or started to) learn quite a few API's for C++ since that day in 2001 when I started.
