    There are so many, which ones do you know and how well do you know them?

    My list:

    Visual Basic (6) - Moderate
    HTML - Moderate
    PHP - A little

    C/++ - Used to know quite a bit when I was DS programming, kinda forgot some now
    Python - Learning right now, so far a very easy language which I recommend to anyone who wants to start programming.

    edit: oh and html, but who doesnt know that? or at least a few tags?

    VB
    Javascript
    Actionscript
    Pascal
    Lua

    I used to know Cobol, Fortran, PL1 but have long since forgotten anything about them.

    HTML is markup not programming.

    - all the main web languages: PHP, HTML, Javascript, CSS, SQL
    - Delphi

    Known (from school or self taught), but don't like/use them:
    - C, C++, C#
    - Java, JSP (eww! *pukes*)
    - Bash scripting

    Old stuff
    - TI & Q-Basic
    - mIRC scripting
    - 68k (asm)
    - dos scripting

    Things I have yet to learn: Python, ASP(.net), Flash/action script, and Visual basic
    Been a self taught developper since 99 and have been an IT student for 4 years now.

    Ones that I currently know and use:
    • HTML
    • ActionScript
    • PHP
    • RealBasic
    • VisualBasic (and .net)
    • C/C++
    • Javascript

    Ones that I used to use but don't care for anymore (mainly because I used them in school)
    • Turing
    • Delphi

    And that is all [​IMG]

    @Costello: If you're looking to learn ActionScript for Flash, you're already halfway there as it's very similar to Javascript [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'd have to argue that XML and HTML don't count for any of these lists:

    PHP
    MySQL
    Perl
    BASIC (w00t!)
    Javascript (with all the fun stuff like jQuery)

    I want to learn C# and possibly something Windows relation, like VB.NET or something.

    Mainly Java, with a bit of Javascript, MySQL, C++ and Perl on the side (ranked in order of how much I remember [​IMG] ), and webpage authoring (HTML, CSS, XML, XSL). And some functional crap called Standard ML and Scheme which I've forgotten most of cause I doubt I'll ever use it.

    I'm teaching myself C#, and moving to AJAX when I'm done with that. I could probably pick up PHP quite quickly too, my course covered a little bit of it but I haven't really used it enough for it to stick yet. Really need to get a better job soon, it's such a waste watching this lot slip out of my memory.

    Actionscript would be kinda fun but probably not a good move for me; flash webpages are a pain in the arse and I've got plenty of graphics-based toys to play with already. Maybe later [​IMG]

    A little HTML, but that's about it.

    I never had much interest in the actual programming of various systems. I don't have the patience.

    I'm more of a PC hardware setup guy, not a programmer.

    C++ - A fair amount, but not loads. I've only used it for Games Development, so writing desktop/console apps is out of my league
    C# - Once again, some, but not loads
    Java - Used to be better in that then I was C++ now, but I've forgotten most of it
    Visual Basic.NET - Quite good. Haven't done it in a while and don't really wanna return, it's a language for beginners IMO.

    HTML - I know quite a bit, although I don't really use it anymore.

    One language I wouldn't mind learning just for the sake of learning it is PHP - it's the only web language out there that I'll give my time of day to these days. I'm getting sick to death of doing "C#/ASP.net hybrid" web sites for uni/college.

    My languages of choice would be:

    Javascript and AJAX with jQuery (One author I would recommend to anyone looking for a beter understanding of Object oriented Javascript is John Resig) for the client side.

    Ruby on Rails for the sever side (although I'm forced to use .NET and C# at work [​IMG] ) Recommended author here, Patrik Lenz and some blogs.

    Non programming languages but important anyway: XHTML, XML and CSS.

    Other languages: Basic (my first programming language), Pascal, Visual Basic, C++...

    Assembler - average, but I don't like it that much
    C - very good. everyday use as part of my studies
    C++ - very good. everyday use as part of my studies
    C# - basic stuff, but I don't use it that often. very nice language for programming under windows
    Java - not so good. had to learn it at the beginning of my studies, but i never liked it and haven't used it since
    VHDL - more than average

    I also know some stuff in html, css, php, mysql, etc. but as a student of computer engineering I don't consider them real programming languages [​IMG]

    HTML is not a programming language.

    It's a markup language, HyperText MARKUP LANGUANGE.

    I know PHP, Javascript, C(++), Autoit v3. I hate any microsoft language (Anything with "visual" in.)

    Assembler: x86 (intended for windows based stuff) but nothing beyond sse2 which discounts a lot of the fun multimedia stuff (rendering it somewhat pointless for what I care to do) and ARM7 and 9 (GBA/DS).
    Been doing a bit of work on them lately so I could probably do them well enough for most things but I am not at the guru level and still need a list for all but the most basic of commands.
    Edit: I am also taking up powerpc for the cube and wii but beyond what is common to all ASM I am not going to even note it.

    Autoit: decent scripting and GUIs with no framework needed (i.e. my ideal counterpart to ASM and command line stuff I otherwise make/us). The only gripe is it is windows only but that is only because I do like to occasionally give a nod to those who use other platforms.

    Avisynth: some say it is not programming but if this is not programming then I give up now (a demo script from a new very good inpainting/logo remover filter (if you need one run this demo and compare to your old filters): http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=133682 ):
    Sure my stuff does not tend to end up quite this complex (or if it appears that way it is usually my horrendous abuse of OOP) but you get the idea.

    I can write Windows/DOS batch files. I used to know basic when I was a little kid, about 20 years ago.
