Programming





snowboardude
I know its sad, but... alas, programing computers in C++, Java, HTML/Javascript/PHP, and OpenGl are among my hobbies

does anyone else program in the above languages? (esp. OpenGL, because I have a feq questions for a graphics library expert)

I use Java, a lot. It’s a great language. Try free Oracle Developer
http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev/index.html,
it has included server and you can easily build Internet applications (jsp). Now I’m planning to learn PHP because there are much more php hostings to choose from.
occ_mikey
I love writing scripts in php.My hosting service is going to delete the free accounts so I came here to get a new one.I don't need a lot of space (20 mb + 20 mb mysql db ...) just to keep on learning... I tried to learn c++ but it seemed too difficult to me Laughing

Programming isn't a sad hobby. Anyways, I program a little (mostly for various "retro" machines, but between photography, gaming and schoolwork, I don't have much time for it any more...

I would like to learn OpenGL. What language do you interface to it from? C++? Or is it a deal where it has its own language? I ask because DirectX is so ridiculously complicated in Visual Basic alone, and just to set up a viewport it takes 4-5 modules and pages upon pages of code. I wonder if OpenGL is any nicer.

I am interested in the free software movement, but I am not a very good C++ developer. I need to work on it.

OpenGL can be interfaced from just about any language, but C is the normal set of wrappers. If you want to program OpenGL without coding C Python is your best choice,as it offers an exccellent set of OpenGL bindings called (rather uncreatively) PyOpenGL

I'm not familiar to those OpenGL but I want to learn it. Programming is one of my hobbies too but not that daily. I really like to program using C, C++ and PHP.
urangkayo
i have a little skills in C programming, Java, shell scripting. perl

the most programming i like is shell scripting and perl, because i love playing with shell Smile

maybe in future i will try PHP and mysql

I have some experience with C++, HTML, and SAS.

I probably won't pursue an education in computer programming in the future, unless it's for my personal knowledge...in which case I'll buy a book and teach myself.

Programming isn't a sad hobby.
Yes ! programmming is not a sad hobby/work (unless you're a bad programmer). There are always so many things to discover. And there are many worse things to do in life ;)

I've been programming as a hobby since high school, and I always enjoy it. It comes and goes in phases (I did C++ for a while, a little java, and lately php/mySQL), but at some point I always get back to it.

The real draw for me is the challenge of figuring out how to do things. Once I've set a goal (simple application, game, etc), it's like a giant puzzle trying to figure out how to code it effectively. It can be frustrating at times and seem nerdy to people not in the know, but there's nothing more satisfying than cracking that puzzle and looking at the finished product.

I see here are some people interested in coding. Why don't we make a new category in this forum for programming? We would have a place to post in case of problems or unusual experiences in this field. Moreover it would be easier to catch some points by solving other's problems.
Do you know where should we request such category?
wodor
Yeah, as for now all other languages are in the Scripting/others category. I'd like to see more categories for languages like ruby, python, delphi/pascal, ...., C

Apps weiting is my hobby. I usualy write programs for open source community or helps in other projects. This is very fun and helps me get more experience with my programmers skills. My favourite languges: C/C++, python, php
jamie
i know C/C# and c++ well.also i am interested in php and ruby on rails.i want to help u Wink
choxxy
Hail to all ye c++ programmers and bravo to all ye programmers, there is nothing as great a writing codes till midnight and sleep dreaming about your next programming assignment.

I program my sites in XHTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP
But i have more ploblems with the graphical work

HTML-woot!

it sooooooooo useful these days
TheSublime
I tried..

never really had anything to do with it

but I find it interesting
STYLAN
i also have tried to work out
html but it failed.
One of my frnds in class is my teachewr in html.

so i reccommend moving this topic!!!!

I used to like writing scripts in batch and then I started using batch compilers combined with Setup Factory and similar programs to make scripts.... then I moved on to AutoIt... its a scripting language more advanced than basic and easier than C++, which I am now learning. Autoit is pretty cool... anyone interested in learning to program should check it out.
cloudship
i do c++ and c# Wink

for me there is no great difference between the OOP languages, except the libraries. And as long as I could have a reference to the library and one grammar book, I would like to use any one of the OOP language.

However, I am not an professional programmer, hehe, thus, my opinion might not be academical and professional.
Staggy11
I know a very small amount of C. My real knowledge lies in PHP and a bit of HTML, although I am still learning both.
sm6eat
I don΄t C, i PAS.. In Delphi Pascal. And also using PHP for developing webpages.

PHP and MySQL.. i know some VB too!...

I'm learning HTML currently, its pretty simple. Believe it or not my problem is I can only do it on notepad or something... Dreamweaver is too complicated.... which is kinda backwards from normal, isnt it? ^_^;
silentdae
Yea, programming is a great hobby. I've been doing it nearly every day for 5 years. I've learned the basics of nearly every modern programming/markup/scripting/hybrid language at some point. The ones i can think of are:
-Bash scripting
-DOS Batch
-HTML
-Javascript
-Perl
-PHP
-Python
-Java
-C
-C++

But most of those were years ago and i can't even remember the basics of them. The only languages i find myself using today are C and C++.

As far as a graphics library goes, i've only used the SDL and DirectX. I recommend OpenGL though, since it's cross-platform.
stephancreelle
scripting languages are soooooo fun Smile you can always expand , and work further on other files you or others already wrote. you can always find online bibs , and always have some anwser availeble on one or the other forum
Captain Fertile
I cannot imagine doing any of those languages as a hobby but then again I can't hold it against others who do.

This is probably because in 1995 I had listed among my hobbies on my Resume - HTML! Embarassed

Explains me exactly, minus the java and add on assembly.
unknownc1c
Yeah i can program in a few of those. I know a little bit in the higher languages, but a lot more in the lower level ones like HTML. I'm only in high school right now, but i'll be going to a college this summer

- 1 year in C++
- 18 weeks (half a year) in Java, HTML/Javascript, Macromedia Flash, and currently i'm in Visual Basic
- I hate to say it b/c the teacher was an idiot and it didn't seem this long, but a year in QBasic
- Taught myself some PHP with some help from a friend and his server

I'd like to think i've gotten to learn a wide variety of languages, but truthfully, i don't remember much of C++, it was 2 years ago. lol

I actually program in all of these languages plus Objective-C Cocoa. I don't consider myself to be a nerd or anything either, but I do like coding and consider it a hoby. I program professionally, but I tend to like to work on coding other stuff like opensource project in my spare time too. But I do have a life

I am a student in computer science, so I can't see programming as a hobby, but more as my job! Still, I don't think it's a bad hobby! For instance, in 2006, I've participated to an international programming competition (see http://imaginecup.com , Project Hoshimi section, for more details) and I kind of saw it as a hobby, certainly not as a job or school obligation! And it was really fun, I had a great time, I went in India and I met many programmers, from all around the world!

About my programming areas, I could mention C#, UNIX programming, networks... certainly not web programming - no ofense! Very Happy These are the fields I like the most.

For those who really like programming, try http://imaginecup.com, Project Hoshimi, IT, Algorithm sections. Also, Embedded Development and Software Design could be interesting areas.

Good luck to you all and see ya!

You know a lot of languages. I have only really tried out php and Visual Basic. I suck at Visual Basic mainly because it boars me but I am fairly good at PHP as I enjoy websites and website building.

I java and javascript easy to learn as I was thinking about trying to learn them.

Also you are not the only one who has this as there hobby as I always programme with PHP. It is my hobby.
Malchior
I love programming and scripting, I used to make web pages in my early high school days using html. I also basic C, like if-else-if, increment or decrement, and switch statements. All that basic stuff but everytime I went too high on C, I always have a hard time. I also want to learn PHP because I need it to have my own RPG site, but I do know how some of it's module will work if I look at it's code. Another thing I would want to know is MySQL. I really want to learn how to create a MySQL database so that I can upload module to my site. I tried searching the net for tutorials but none of them makes sense to me... Oh well, I guess that I'll give up on MySQL and concentrate on PHP.

By the way, you can see a PHP tutorial on FLASH movie HERE.

Any URL's that points toward a MySQL tutorial will be greatly appreciated. Smile
MrBlueSky
Maybe I will learn to program one day. Looks like a great hobby.

Oh wait...

I'm pretty intermediate in HTML at 15, I'd say. My brother is a software programmer for a living and I guess I inherited the hobby.
theLOGANhole
I keep wanting to learn SQL and apache but Im so busy and i don't know how to manage my time efficiently so im always in the same boat....

Though I hope to learn more than just that...

C++ is another strong language which will help in my computer field.

All i know is basic html...man I suck
minik
I only really know CSS. I know a BIT of PHP.
thealpha
i only know pascal, seems very lod, right?

I don't program in those programs, but I use Macromedia Dreamweaver, GameMaker, and am currently searching for more.
dwinton
I love programming. I do it mostly for problems I find interesting in math or science. I also enjoy writing casino game programs.

I know Java, and Visual Basic. I am learning C++, C, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and php at the moment.

I think there is something elegant in a program that solves a complex problem in a simple way. I also enjoy using infinite series to find the values for sin, cos, pi, e, etc
jayrelle
Programming is fun, since it exercises my braincells. Here in our country, many are amazed if you are a female programmer.I dont know why but probably they think that it belongs to men stuff.. Ive tried different programming/scripting languages and I can say that if you have any background in programming, then its easier to migrate from one to another language.. I do java,jsp,php,c,c++,html,css,javascript and rightnow I'm learning actionscript and .net platforms.. Very Happy
wernichtfragt
i started doing basic about a decade ago
i have tried various other ways of programming
the ones i like most are
c++ and assembly (ASM)
c++ because you can do anything with it and most opensource software is written in c++
ASM because i like playing with binary numbers and stuff like that
+ asm is used for hardware programming (firmware hackin and such things)

php comes in handy if you want to automate your work and want a quick solution +you can always rely on google for ready-made scripts


+++ being exercised in programming helps you pass your math tests more easyly with having to learn less cuz it uses the same schemes

I've done a bit of work in Java and JavaScript recently. I suppose this will show my age, but I really miss GWBasic and Dos Batch programming,... simpler times!
Liu
Was a hobby for me. Then became part of my studies at University. Now it's a job.
flatliner
I also code as a hobby and its now becoming my full time work. At the monment I write in the following languages
- html
- javascript
- PHP
- mySQL
- Ajax

I am currently doing some learning on C++ , but its abit over my head as I am more used to online simpler programming languages like PHP. but I love learning new skills and anything I.T.
hunterm
I'm a developer and have done a lot of HTML and Javascript in the past as a web developer.

Then I began working on middleware applications and began coding in a language called monk (which is similar to Lisp). I've recently moved over to another application which uses c# and .Net . Microsoft have recently released .Net3, has anyone used this?

i wonder if anyone will be able to solve this little puzzle

I used to do some programming in high school, but it was really basic stuff. So now all I can do is some HTML and CSS =(
HollyK
I have programmed in TI-BASIC and C++ (Unix and Mac OSX). I also do HTML if that could be considered a language. People looked at me rather weird when I was walking around with a C++ book. O.o
