Programming and coding
1 Name: OP !ZW07SUX5r2 : 2013-08-31 16:10
Game industry programmer here. Still pretty new to c++ but I was just wondering what language other people use in their daily life.

C, C++ and C# at work, and sometimes some python for helpful scripts
3 Name: Anonymous : 2013-08-31 18:29
I use Python 2.7. But I still suck at it.

Do you actively develop stuff in C or is it more used to maintain old systems / modules?
5 Name: Anonymous : 2013-08-31 18:51
simply for maintenance

As for me, it's Java, C, and various shell scripting languages as a military simulation maker.
As a hobby it's fallen by the wayside. I'll get back on the wagon one of these days. I used to like C and Scheme.

PHP and JS for work (web dev)
For fun, I do most of my prototyping and algo design in python and then implement it in whichever language is right for the job.
C is my favorite, though. It was the first I learned and I still love it 10 years later. I also love automating things with bash and applescript.

bash and python are both excellent for small tasks, or a number of small tasks contributing to a larger task
i've been having fun at work recently integrating both with our CI

I'm working on teaching myself JS. Then I'll work on Python.

I'm currently teaching myself Pure Data, a visual programming language. I'm sure that people used to text-based programming languages might find it limiting, but for musical applications it seems that the possibilities are nearly endless.

Yeah, automating small tasks is a really nice feeling. I'm currently working on a small script that uses ImageMagick to modify some CSS sprites for work and generate the appropriate code.>>10
That's great. I played with Max/MSP/Jitter a while ago and pure data is really neat for video/audio processing! I would love to make some algorithmically generated music sometime.

This might be a fun way to get into ActionScript if you know absolutely nothing about programming: http://www.kongregate.com/games/GregoryCarlson/the-programmer-rpg

I just discovered node-webkit!
I'm using it to do a horrible xPud-clone for my netbook.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

I've always thought about things like that. What if a guy went back to mid evil times with a average sized handgun and was attacked by knights? How many would he be able to take out before the rest ran away in fear?

You'd really only need a CD player, according to A Kid in King Arthur's Court
See also: A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
I think I've read it, but it was apparently not memorable. I read a lot of Mark Twain and a lot of King Arthur-related works when I was young.

With the new year and all, is anyone participating in http://www.onegameamonth.com

One every month. Hell, most good games take years to make.

No one said they had to be good games!
There's a proverb about the board game Go:
Lose your first hundred games as quickly as possible.
I think that applies to anything worth doing.
Right now I'm thinking about how to implement a really basic chess AI for a chess variant with respawning, in accordance with the challenge's January theme. A simple thing, almost not even a game, that I'll learn something from and discard.

That actually sounds pretty cool, I'd like to play it when it's finished.

Wait, so like, the chess pieces respawn? Seriously? Because itself is a great idea.

I want to actually DO things with Ruby but I can't get past the stage of just knowing about loops and variables and doing basic math.

Currently studying C/C++ at uni, and really liking both of them. Before that used to do Python, PHP and some LISP.

Just started learning python so I can hopefully do some cool automation with my pi. I started with VB at school :p

Oh god, hahaha. I had a VB class at school last year. It was horrible. I learned things about programming, but VB is just so baaad.
