  • #1 ✎ 129 jamieyello First Day Joined on the very first day of SmileBASIC Source Website Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies I was really interested in the poll results and saw I was one of the oldest people here, so I want to see other people's votes too. Age- 21 Languages; BASIC VB.Net C++ HTML Assembly I'm best with basic, then VB.Net, then c++, I barely know HTML but I understand how it works. Same with assembly, I could write something in assembly if I wanted but I never bothered. My favorite is C++, it's really annoyingly complicated but learning it is a really worthwhile investment since it's the main language used in most open source projects. I took a class for vb.net, I know that inside and out but honestly vb.net seems outdated. HTML seems to do everything vb.net can do better. No one wants to download extract and run a windows only application when they can visit a web page using any device, that's the future and vb.net isn't going to have a place in it. Basic is the opposite of c++ as it's really really easy to just do something quick and easy but isn't really a serious platform at all outside of SB. Assembly is deceptively easy to understand, it's just a mess trying to do anything with it. Posted Edited by jamieyello
  • #2 ✎ 974 randomouscrap Robot Hidden Easter Eggs RNG Hidden Easter Eggs Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies I'm old. I know a few languages or something. I really disagree with the proliferation of C++. I don't think mixing low level and "high level" (if you can call it that) works. Just pick C or pick a high level language and stop trying to sit in the middle. You can't have the best of both worlds without also having the worst of both. I can't wait for it to die out. That being said, a language is just a tool, and language wars are silly. I just don't like C++ because it's unnecessarily hard. C is more low level and much easier than C++, and C#/(pick a high level managed language) is more high level and easier than C++. But there are (apparently many) people who don't mind the convolutions provided by C++, so it's not like I can say it's objectively a bad language. I just wonder whether they like it for the wrong reasons (like having pride in doing something so difficult). CSS needs to take a few pointers from Windows Forms. I think everyone should take an advanced compilers course so they can appreciate what they do for you (and why managed languages aren't actually all that slow). Posted

  • #4 ✎ 129 jamieyello First Day Joined on the very first day of SmileBASIC Source Website Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies If I'm being honest, I think that's really the main reason why I like C++, it's just so challenging. It's like a puzzle, and the idea that if you can master it your programs will will be really optimized is the end goal. I'd probably hate it if not for that. That and because nearly every single open source project I've ever come across has been written in C++. Yeah it's really stupid and you have to set tons of things up. I can't describe the nightmare that is trying to render a sprite on a window. It's actually hilarious. You need like 2000 lines of code. I will learn Python at some point, or some other lower level language. If I were to bash any language it would be Java. I've never used Java and I'm sure programming in Java is a breeze, but I couldn't explain to you how angry Java has made me corrupting itself on multiple computers and I think the idea of a programming language making executables that rely on other (unstable) programs you have to install kind of dumb.

  • #5 ✎ 11 MikeModder007 Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Age of 13 Languages: HTML (Completely trash though) SmileBASIC (Both) Java My personal favorite is definitely Java. While I agree with jamieyello about the PC side of development, Java is the main programming language of android so I use it quite often (especially at my robotics club since we have to use android phones). That and I think it looks cool. Posted

  • #9 ✎ 784 snail_ Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength OSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source OSP Contest! Age: 17 18 the cruel hand of time moves… Still learning the ropes of compsci but I'm getting up there. I picked Expert because I feel I'm above Novice. Defining experience as "I've used it decently before." Langs
    1. SmileBASIC (2x and 3x variants) - Learned in the language but I haven't done much of note with it :P
    2. TI-BASIC (84+) - Best way to cheat on your tests.
    3. Java - Took a whole class in it, kinda nice. I built a Lights Out clone in JavaFX as my final project.
    4. HTML/CSS/JavaScript - Maybe I'll build a webtube. JS is definitely my "useful" skill.
    5. Befunge - Literally the best esolang.
    6. Countless others I've touched once or twice (Batch, VBS, Erlang, it's a long list)

  • #11 ✎ 379 MasterR3C0RD First Week Joined in the very first week of SmileBASIC Source Website Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength Age: 15 Experience: 6 years, getting kinda close to mastery in JavaScript Languages I've used before:
    1. JavaScript: By far my favorite programming language, especially Node.js. I think I'm pretty good at JS especially.
    2. SQL: My experience with this is pretty okay, but I wouldn't call myself a good schema writer.
    3. SMILEBASIC 1x: I'm not the greatest, but I'm okay.
    4. VB.NET: My LEAST favorite .NET language.
    5. C#: My favorite .NET language. Takes a while to get used to, but after a while, it gets dead simple.
    6. FreeBASIC: I'm getting better, and I'm really liking this as an alternative to C.
    7. C: How couldn't I have used C? It's a good language!
    8. C++: Not fun.
    9. Yabasic: This is okay for simple stuff if you're good with PTC/SB, but I won't call this the most amazing thing in the world.
    10. Brainfuck: I think this is my favorite esolang. I've written a few interpreters and compilers for it in JS, it's really nice.
    11. PHP: I've written a few small things in PHP, but I don't like it that much.
    12. Bash: I use this pretty much every day. It's kind of important when you're using Linux...
    13. Lua: I hate Lua.
    14. Python: Yet another language I should practice. I kind of like how it forces you to be neat.
    15. Processing.JS: I think this counts as a separate language. It's a lot more complicated then JavaScript itself.
    16. Game Boy Assembly: I have almost no experience with this, and I don't want to have any more with it.
    ... Yeah, I've wasted a lot of free time... DISCLAIMER: I'm not trying to show off. I'm simply listing the programming languages I've used before. If I wanted to list the languages I can write good software in, that list shrinks quickly.

  • #12 ✎ 8 Spoookd Beginner Programmer I'm just starting out! I'm still trying to grasp the basics. Programming Strength Pokemon Is Awesome! I love Pokemon! Express Yourself Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Age: 14 Languages:
    1. HTML/CSS: If I could rank myself with a number between 1 and 5 I would say 3. I work on a website for my friend.
    2. JavaScript: I am still learning, but I know most of the basics!
    3. SmileBASIC: Haven't learned much yet, but as soon as I get a 3DS I am going to start!
    4. Lua: I guess I would say I am an intermediate scripter for LUA. ROBLOX is where I learned.
    5. PHP Trying to learn. It is similar to JS I find and I already learned almost all of the basics of both.
    Yes, I know.. It's a small list :/ I am still learning all of these, and I am also learning more! :D
