Title: What's your favorite language??
Post by: moyack on December 11, 2012, 01:09:31 AM
The title say it all.

I know C++ is the king of the hill, but the learning curve can kill any motivation to learn it.

Python is looking a very good option for me, now it's being used in a lot of projects and systems.

What do you think??

I've tried java, but I don't like the fact it's computer consuming. I think they should work in optimization because right now it's being abandoned in several projects... for example libreoffice is planning in reducing this dependency ().

I've started my programming life with VB6, I loved it (in fact I dare to say I still love it), and I did a lot of nasty thing with it. But when it becomes VB.net... I've got disappointed :(

.net is in general a bad thing for me. The idea is nice (no matter the language we compile it) but the implementation implies a lot of computer requirements.

I usually do some web languages now. I started with JavaScript (I know HTML and CSS too, but I dont consider them as languages), then Actionscript 2 then 3. Maybe at 2013, I might try some PHP.

Of all those, I love AS2 the most. Its simple, easy to write with, and can be powerful too. I prefer it over AS3 since AS3 is somehow more complex for me and harder to write with (one example is that you cant put any codes into objects like movie clips), but more OOP. You've seen those Flash games haven't you?

Well, I barely remember anything about JS, since I dont practice it much.
Maybe I can try, but dont expect any promises :P

Python for me. The coding style is just something you can't walk away from.

The only sad part is that not all computers have python installed by default (OS X does, and a few HP/Compaq computers), which can be a deterrent for some downloaders. Java is usually installed already. Although, there are converters to compile it as exe or app (Py2exe or Py2app), which makes python a pretty formidable language. Plus the GUI libraries are really nice (even has one built-in).

Overall, I find it a lot easier to read, and you can pick it up very easily without much work.

Yes, Python is awesome, and it's easy to read. I need to unstuck from VB so I can get this language.

Meanwhile I'll keep learning and improving PHP, for my site  and for developing nice Internet stuff :)

LUA is awesome, is simple as hell, but it depends on the thing it's applied. Just remember that is an interface for other languages :)

Sure: http://www.lua.org/manual/5.2/manual.html#3.2 ()

In fact thanks to LUA JNGP exits :)
