My sloth overcomes my pride often enough that I'll go for something with code completion.  :-[

Eh, I just get into habits.  I've found myself typing BBCode into instant messengers by accident. :-[  Luckily, the other person understood what I meant.

I code my HTML in notepad; when I can be bothered to. Usually I just use Dreamweaver! Lolz

I use Visual Basic Studio for VB stuff, and Visual C++ for well... C++. haha

I always found that I hated Visual Studio.  I always have to cook up some sort of modification to make the thing do what I want.

As to favorite language - I think APL, and to that end...

    There are three things a man must do
    Before his life is done;
    Write two lines in APL,
    And make the buggers run.
                     - I believe that gets attributed to Stan Kelly-Bootle.

Now as to why, because it was my first programming language in which the only thing worth mentioning that I ever wrote was probably a console Blackjack application.

I'm more familiar with Java, C++, and C# these days. Find that I like Java the most of the three (okay really two languages since C# is just C with a VB drag-and-drop setup), but know it's because I don't have a strong mastery of C yet... Getting there...



Favorite Text Editor - Notepad works just fine for me.

I changed my major from Programming to Journalism, as I'm sick of it, but I really enjoyed Java and C++ during my short 3 years learning the stuff.

SQL (esp. DDL over DML), PL/SQL.

Only because it has to do with my job (I'm a database engineer). I use it every day, whether I want to or not, so I'm most familiar with it.

If I have to write actual "programs" though, I use Java. I find it much less cumbersome than C++, but also less atomic-bomb-scale powerful. But it lets me write GUIs without tearing what hair I have left out.

Just out of curiosity - do any stored procedures?

I love python! My applications are never resource-intensive so the easy debugging and quick development time is a godsend for me. Anything more complex, and I make the interns do it, lol

I like using C#.  I have used C++ as well, which is very nice when you need to do low level programming with the hardware or inline assembly code.  Though none of the programming I do now involves low level hardware access so thats why I use C#.  It is geared towards Windows programming and also website programming.
