What programming languages do you use for fun or work?
« on: Fri, 13 July 2018, 04:34:22 »
Hey. Im just curious to know the devs within GH.

At work, I mainly use C++ to develop scientific applications. First language to pick up.

I like C# for its reflection, but mainly used for the Unity Engine. Made a some prototype games and tools.
Used to do competitive Java programming in high school, but never really ended up using it in a project.
Python for quick prototyping.

Learned some Haskell, it completely changed how to approach programming. It probably spoiled me, and now I complain about C++.  :))
One of my favorite Haskell articles: Evaluating Cellular Automata is Comonadic

What tech/languages do you all use for fun or work? Any projects you are working on that you would like to share?

Erlang, Python, Haskell.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

Mostly Java at work these days, mostly Python at home (plus a fair bit of Python at work too).
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

At work, it heavily differs; currently, Java, JavaScript and C#. But I don't work for fun.

My currently preferred "private" languages are C, C++ and Delphi. I'm looking into Racket because it seems to be an acceptable Lisp with a magnificent standard library. It might replace Common Lisp for me.

I write in C.

Of the various variants of C++, only C++14 is worthwhile IMHO but then you would have to enforce strict discipline that everything is in the C++14 style. Good C code is often more clean and readable, because the language is less complex.

Yeah, you're mostly right. They fixed (more) things that were weird in older C++ but some aspects are starting to make it a bit too heavy. Best to use C++17-compliant compiler but write your code in mostly a C++14 style.
The big proposals for C++20 are just out there IMHO: it would be better to make a new language altogether with those features and keeping conceptually C++ pure.

C++ - just like PHP - has become "fat" by 2018, indeed. But there is too much legacy code to make a fork worth the effort.

Bash and a bit of C++ (arduino), still early in the learning process.

Thinking of picking up another one next year. Python3 or GO - what do you think?

Work: Perl (request-tracker) and C++/Arduino (Kaleidoscope, keyboard firmware) and JavaScript (heavily keyboard related too).
Fun: Clojure, ClojureScript, with a hint of shell and python here and there.

I have a few Emacs lisp and C projects too, but neither would be my language of choice. I used to use a lot of other languages for both work and fun, but I've settled on the above lately. If I could, I'd write everything in Clojure or a variant, but definitely in a Lisp.

Lisps are great with their conditions and restarts and image based development and powerful debugging capabilities, but Clojure... errrr

Python is slow and dumb. Go is fast and dumb (basically, a dumb C with non-standard threading).

No, I misunderstood and am feeling stupid now.

OK so GO is fast but is missing a crucial element and is still young and not widely used, python is popular although dumb and slow... might as well go for C then.

Python for work and fun. Sometimes you come across Ruby in production and have to tweak it a bit. Golang for fun but I can never stick with it.

 i lost all my knowledge about programming, last year i studied C language,

Java is written in C++. That's what they told me when I applied for work at Oracle -- about working with Java compilers and tools. :-þ

Mostly Python these days, sometimes Java for Android apps

For work, Python with some JavaScript. For fun, Python with some JavaScript. I mostly deal with web frameworks. Gotta love the new type hinting and coroutines!

I've done some work with Java which was exciting (the work was, not using the language  :p).

Oh, I'll chime in.
I'm not a developer, but I wanted to learn some language and thought I'll give Python a go.
Started some course and liking so far.

What do you guys think about Python? Is it good lanugage to learn from scratch, like to make your first and only programming language?
I got so excited with my idea/dream of writing a simple scrolling game, like Mario:)

Yes.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.
