My journey through programming was like this:

BASIC - boring
Assembly - loads and loads of fun and really gnarly to debug and write
FORTRAN - the epitome of discipline and the word "fun" doesn't exist at all
PASCAL - more fun than FORTRAN
C - fun if you like memory leaks and overwriting memory you don't own
C++ - fun if you like the problems with C and the discipline of classes and templates
SQL - fun when you get it working, inconsistent discipline, and like lying on a bed of needles until you get that cool SQL to work correctly and in the end you still are left wondering why it works and what the performance issues are
C# - a good balance between fun and discipline
Ruby - fun if you write it yourself, excruciating pain if you have to read someone else's code
Python - fun when doing fun projects like working with Single Board Computers
Javascript - fun if you write it yourself and are disciplined about it, but beware of murderous impulses when fixing other people's code

Prompted from a chat with a coworker who pointed out:

nowadays, frameworks and languages are opting for fun. The most fun it is to write in that language the better.

And yes, I'm biased, as I love C#.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
