BASIC (used in QBASIC, but it's not called QBASIC)
HTM (no L, it's not a language imho, but I'll list it since everyone else is)
C++
PHP
SQL
VB
CSS
Java
Javascript
Perl

I learned those in somewhere close to that order. PHP is still my favorite language by far, especially with the new features in PHP5 like a new "working" object model with object visibility, constructors, per-class constants, and __autoload(). Truely a scripted language with compiled properties and behavior. C++ would of hit that list if I didn't get heavy into web development. Java is alright, but Javascript just flat out sucks. Perl is confusing as hell dealing with variables.

I'd still like to learn some of the .NET technology, C#, and some ASP one of these days.

It is a language, just not a programming language. It is a markup language, thus why it stands for Hyper Text Markup Language :)

It seems like many people really enjoy PHP the most from what I have found.

Welcome to the board btw.

Yes, heed this advice! It's 10 times easier than making tables (which I don't even touch anymore), and yes, it helps a ton on color schemes and just overall look.

Thanks for the welcome btw.

Also it helps with DIV tags (I am assuming you use those since you don't use tables)

I'm surprised at how many people find CSS useless and don't bother to learn it. It really is quite valuable and more people need to learn to love it! I don't know what I would do without style sheets or DIV tags. CSS has certainly saved me a lot of hassle.

Yes, I use DIV tags. I guess it is pretty hard to put together a good layout without tables or DIV tags... hehe. It's just a lot easier for me to define positioning with DIV tags then to worry about table nesting, you tend to run into a lot of problems and get lost in your nesting with more complex designs.

The thing about DIV positioning that i have found, is that it looks bad on different screen resolutions, and one rule i was told alot by friends is never have "this site is best viewed under 1024x768 32bit colors" crap, because it makes people go away x.x

I would have to agree with you r0bin, I always find it amusing when a site says "its best viewed at 1024x768" or whatever else. People use a wide range of resolutions, and I really doubt they are going to change their resolution just so they can view it at the one it was designed for. The web designer should design a site and make sure it works in the majority of resolutions.

Damn, that is one small resolution. I don't think my sites would look normal on that small of one.

Well as far as actual programming languages go, I pretty much come up empty. I've dabbled in C, C++, and Java, but when it comes down to it, there are monkeys that can do more in those languages than I can. I plan on learning those sometime, but we'll see.

As for languages I do know...

HTML (well everyone else was bringing it up)
CSS
Javascript
Actionscript
PHP/MySQL (currently learning)
Proce55ing (simplified java basically) (currently learning)

C+/++ - a little bit
Qbasic - use to be proficient / but very little use today (some of the commands are still used by VB thou)
assembly language - some knowledge / need to refresh thou
VB - In the middle of learning
Batch scripts (DOS) - when ever I need it, which isn't to often

I know there is none of those fancy languages HTML, Perl, PHP in the list. One day I'll get around to it, if I ever build my own website. I got to much else to learn before I get around those.

You guys realize that HTML, XHTML, CSS, JAVA SCRIPT, PHP are not programming languages? Those are just mark-up tags and scripts.

Programming Languages I KNow: VB 6, VB .NET, C# .NET, C++, Some Java and some C.

Misc Languages that are being considered programming languages in this thread: HTML, XHTML, CSS, PHP, Action Script

Gee I would have never have guessed....but what DOES that "L" in HTML stand for then :-? I may be a bit confused, but isn't it Hyper Text Mark-up Language......

Maybe I was wrong.

I know it may not be able to handle variables and other such things like real "languages" but look back and actually read this post and you will see it has been discussed.

Programming languages != Markup Languages.

I figured you'd be smart enough to realize that.....

But no one said, Oh my oh my looky here we are discussing markup languages in a programming language post. Shoot me down oh powerful god.


Nah we just came to the conclusion that they weren't the same, but they were still languages you use as a webmaster.
