I'm partial to sam and acme too, but using them on their non-native platform is surreal.


joe, sam, ed... im finding a theme here.

I guess any of them are fine as long as it's not nano or notepad++ lol

I just learned a bit of python.

I would like to learn perl, and a few others (not sure which ones yet, depends on what I will be needing).

I took C# as an elective
I didn't really enjoy it enough to pursue it after

"Language is irrelevant.

If you know how to program, you can pick up any language you want in a week or less."




Learning the syntax sure, but that's a nonfactor. Anyone who programs for a living will tell you that learning the syntax of a programming language isn't even something worth noting. It's learning the libraries and tools of a language that is what actually counts.

Try learning the core .Net library in a week. -> http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg145045(v=VS.110).aspx

You don't need to learn anything with .NET that's what Visual Studio is for.

I am learning python this semester, c++ next semester, robot c(ridiculously easy btw) next year. I'll teach myself java, and maybe assembly. Then when I start college in 2 years (2016), I'll major in physics and computer engineering.

What does this even mean? The code completion features in VS may show you the available methods, overloads, etc. They still don't tell you which objects or methods to use for a specific task.

How would you know when to use a List<T> instead of an IEnumerable<T> or even a standard array? Or when to use an IQueryable<T>?

That stuff is very important and VS doesn't teach it to you.

Not to mention that VS has hundreds of 1st and 3rd party plugins that you may need to utilized in your scenarios.

Point being, it's never as simple as learning the language. Not if you want to actually build real world applications.

Imagine Clippy popping up and saying, "It looks like you're trying to implement something already present in the standard library."
