This topic is for us to discuss our favourite programming languages.
In this thread you should


  • introduce your favourite language (briefly)
  • Give some reasons why you like it
  • Say how software to aid and write in your programming languages can be found (optional)


We look forward to seeing what programming languages you all like

What is your favourite programming language, from the ones that I think I know the most of you have used...

Mine has to be Prolog ... cos I actually understand it ...

VB, simple as and end of. Go on, burn me and tell me that it's not a proper programming language.

Prolog... give me a break!

At the moment, nothing can compete with C/C++/Objective C and it's capabilites....

PS Java sucks

PSS VB has never stood for anything more than Very Bad

EDIT------------

Just re-read the topic name, far enough if it's your favourite, thought we we're looking for the best, but still, I love C and its subsets

ah good old C used for most programming these days wished we learn it in comp sci however might be hard for people who have never programmed to go straight to C.

Yeh I thought that too, altho when I did apply to Swansea i asked if C++ was taught on the course and they said yes, it is the mainstream language on the course..... If i'm not mistake, Java seems a pretty heavy influence..... I feel decieved _

yes i was told c was taught but i might be in second and third year comp sci just not in first which is understandable beacuse some people joining have no programming experience at all so they need to start on something easy but not java. java is still hard to learn from scratch as we proved i also think there is too much of a huge gap bettween the basics of java and cs121 which needs to be adressed.

Yeh, you've hit the nail on the head. I don't think you can go from the basics of programming eg creating simple command line output programs to developing data structures with validation to a good standard and error handling. I don't think it is feasible.

Maybe what they uni should have done was insist either previoius Java or *insert appropriate language here* was necessary and then they could build on that. Also they could have offered maybe extra timetabled lectures rather than "programming advisory" that tbh, doesn't really appeal to me. Someone patronising me rather than actually lecturing and teaching techniques.

lol back to programming though i also though prolog was pointless its an old language which is almost unused in the real world and also having done java it made prolog more confusing.
