There is a Computer Thread, but they focus mainly on hardware questions and issues. I know from experience that that is not the place to go for programming inquiries.

So, this place is now the place to go! I heard once before that there was a programming thread already, but I couldn't find it.

Let's bring our expertise or lack-thereof to the SQL table and help each other expand our virtual knowledge!

Post what languages you are familiar/fluent with and I'll update the OP so we know who to ask directly for advice.

NEW: I am updating peoples' proficiencies in languages as they give them to me.
LanguageName [Proficiency Rating]

The proficiency index is as follows:
1-I'm new I don't know what to do! (user has interest in learning that language)
2-Novice
3-Adept
4-Expert
5-Language mastery

I am still a pursuant myself, with a current focus on Java. Next semester it becomes C and Assembly, though. I look forward to working on my own OS this semester, using C and Assembly, to get ahead of the game.

ive done about 5 java classes, so i know the language but i was never a great programmer. just not enough patience really.

graphs. graphs always work. my old work place had an awesome printer, so i was constantly making graphs.

that was until i made a graph of how much my boss pissed me off. but seriously dude, graphs.

Computer science is entirely witchcraft.

I can Ruby!

And C/C++, but I'm better with Ruby.

10+ years programming experience. Currently working as full time software engineer using C++/C/C# as well as Python and Java at times.
#10
Some C++/Ruby/assembly stuff. Taking a VHDL course this semester.


I don't mind coding, but if I had a job in pure software development I'd shoot myself. I spent the last 8 months working on Ruby scripts for a company.
#11
Not all Software Dev jobs are like that, the one I work is pretty rewarding, and not only in a monetary sense.
#12
yes. there is a coding thread. a big one in fact. its called stackoverflow.com

Quote by Jon777
I have a year of java under my belt and that's about it. More to come as I pursue my CS degree, though.


You can do a degree in Counter Strike now? Are you majoring in Source or Global Offensive?
#15
Taught myself Python to automate a bunch of the repetitive tasks I used to do at work. Now I'm about 4x as productive as the rest of the engineers I work with, but get paid the same.

So what languages do you know? For the OP?

Which is now updated, thanks everyone

Great thread idea eGraham.

Fluent w/ PHP; HTML; CSS; MySQL; jQuery (a Javascript Library)

can aid possibly w/ Python

I know a bit of C and C++ and visual basic. Havn't written any code in quite a while though. Been meaning to get back into it by writting my own game, but meh.

I know BASH too if that counts (Probably doesn't).

In terms of getting a job/starting a small business which one of these would be the most rewarding? I mean, which programming language is the highest demand for?

I worked on a lot of Java and C++. I know the basics of C, and I worked on C# during the past summer. I also know XML and a bit of XAML. Definitely most comfortable with Java & C++.

to be honest I don't really see why that would be important. There are API's, man pages and thousands of answers on Stack Overflow for that kind of help.

I'd rather talk about higher level stuff, like how to develop algorithms, worrying about time complexity, what data structure is best for application x, or whatever. Languages are just the nuts and bolts.

I know that sounds condescending, but I don't mean it that way. I've just seen so many people neglect that side of things and it leads to ugly code and clunky programs.
#38
Not condescending at all, I understand. I know that I look forward to your potential input here, and I'm sure others will, too.

As for myself, I'm still rather novice. Finding the best efficiency is just dandy, but at my level, I'm more concerned with just getting it to work

I know dem feels haha. That's exactly what I was like doing assignments but now I appreciate the theory a lot more. You get to look at some really cool stuff if you continue in CS

Do you have any advice on how an absolute beginner should approach learning theory? Or is it better to learn to make things work first, and learn the theory later?

The stuff I did at uni was extremely basic. Things like reading from files and doing basic arithmetic. There's a huge gap between that and developing useful software. Where do you even start? I suppose I'd have to begin with learning how a computer works at the hardware level.

I'm sorry if this sounds vague, but there's so much to learn and I don't even know how to approach it.
