I have always had fun with all the languages I have worked with.
Fortran IV On an IBM 360. Back in 1971
COBOL
PL/I
Assembler
C
Basic in numerous flavours from GW-BASIC, QBasic, Basic for the Oric, VB all up to 6 VB.Net and some I have forgotten. The first version I ever saw was in the 70s on an HP Computer that had a one line/80 character display. Actually wrote a small word processor on that.
Clipper with DBase I loved until Nantucket stepped aside
SQL is the one I cannot live without
PHP is fun but I have never used it professionally.
I have just started using C# and it looks good.
