Nope, my entire list is on my resume (except PSQL, which I learned at my current job... I knew vanilla SQL before, but that's not a programming language).

"Everyday" use:
C/C++
Perl
PHP
Bash

Know well, but don't use much:
Java
VB
C#/VB.NET/Visual C++ .NET
Python
QBasic

Use rarely/esoteric
Shakespeare (SPL)
Brainfuck (not much that's non-trivial)
NQC for Lego Robots

Kind of know/knew/wish I knew:
Pascal
Any more than super-simple assembly
SQL

...I only use any of the .NET languages when I need a Windows-only GUI (rarely). Mostly I use Perl or Bash for simple, useful things, and C/C++ for projects, 'cause of cross-compatibility. And if I need a GUI, I use FLTK! <3

Code: Select all

Learned by myself:
* QuickBasic (POKEing the frame buffer is fun)
* Visual Basic (it's different enough from QB)
* C++ (mostly the basics; did a little Qt)
* Python (basics)
* Common Lisp (makes other languages look horrible)

Learned at College so far:
* Scheme (well, knowing Common Lisp caused me to know more than the teacher regarding Scheme)

In no particular order:
  • Python - My favorite language, and the one I've written the most code in overall!
  • PHP - Hate. But I use it for a handful of things (i.e., never.)
  • perl - From when I messed around with irssi scripting.
  • C - barely enough to make anything functional on my own. Though I can understand a small part of it.

I should really expand my palette, no?

Do varients of the same language count?

C/C++
C#
Java
VB 6 & VB.NET
Q(uick)Basic
SQL (although, if that's considered a "real" programming language, I may consider leaving xkcd)

There really should be some sort of baseline...

I propose that the baseline for "knowing a language" be something along the lines of "I can program a car to drive itself, and fit it all onto 640k", or for you server-side folks: "I can write some code to defend the server against Skynet, AND fit it onto an old tape reel" (that one is arguably easier, actually. Just use RoR, lol). For the OS scripting folks: DOS: Write a script that'll stop Windows from crashing (for bonus points: use WinME). Bash, etc: Write a script that'll make Tinfoil Hat Linux give up its secrets (bonus points: don't change the source. Extra bonus points: Don't look at the source at all).

C++ and x86 Assembly. I also counted VB6, but I wouldn't feel comfortable having someone give me a project to do in VB6 right now. It's been a while.

You guys are starting to be my new ideal in life:
i know
php
html (okay... this is NOT a language)
mysql (anything written in more than 3 pages about the "language" is way too advanced...)
some js (comfortable with it if I can google around)

and that's about it...

I only counted php...

I divide my expertise into 4 levels:

1. Languages I have been paid to program in
C
C++
Perl
shell (bash)
Homebrew XML based language without a name (I created it to test APIs, the interpreter is in C++)

2. Languages I used in college
Matlab
Python
Motorola HCS12 assembly
VB.Net
Java

3. Languages I learned on my own
QBasic
PHP
Javascript

4. Languages I learned in school before college
VB6
Basic


Some of those languages I wouldn't count twice, and many I don't know enough without references to do anything meaningful. In face, if it was anything complex, I would need some sort of reference for any of those except C. However, I would classify "know" as one where you could do most things without reference, and only need reference the rarely used library functions/modules. In which case, I only really know 3 languages.
Odds are I did well on my probability exam.

C/C++, Java and Python I would claim i know very well.

I also know Javascript and BASIC fairly well.

I have been known to use shell scripting (and batch files), C#, JSP and assembly, but not as well, or as often...

I'm familiar and have written code in --

<brag>
Complete programming languages like: ada, bash, c, c++, common lisp, csh, erlang, haskell, java, javascript, lua, objective caml, perl, php, python, ruby, scheme, smalltalk, standard ml, tcl

Plus domain-specific stuff like: sql, css, xsl, make, latex (some more programming than others)
</brag>

Though I'm nowhere near an expert in most of these languages, given some time I could come up with reasonable implementations for most common and useful algorithms. I hope to improve on this, and to expand my list, when I get out of school and have more time to study them. Looking forward to getting into stack-based languages like Forth and Factor.

The way I see it, the more languages you know, the more approaches you are familiar with, the better you can design programs you have to write / choose to write in other languages.

SQL (this count? :-p)
PHP
BASH scripting (quite useful)
C (PIC / ATMEL related)

Not used in quite a while:
Pascal

I can use only Java and PHP with ease, but I've successfully written small scripts/programs in Python, sh, Javascript and Fortran (both 70 and 95, but I like the latter more). Used Logo and TI-83 BASIC. I can do a bit of C++ and a tiny amount of stuff in Perl. Some stuff that doesn't count as a programming language but is kind of useful to know: XML, XHTML, CSS, SQL along with various bits about query optimization, familiarity with the HTTP protocol.

(In other words, web development.)

I only have more than a passing familiarity with java and python, but languages I could possibly come up with something (relatively) basic but useful in given a day and relevant documentation include: C, C++, Ruby, Scheme and Perl.
Languages I probably wouldn't have to fight too much with the compiler/interpreter to write Hello World in:
Prolog, brainfuck and Haskell
Languages I could probably work with, given the choice of either that or eternal torture in Hell:
ASM

C
Python
C++
Java
C#
Bourne Shell
x86/amd64 assembly (in that I can disassemble (reasonable) code and write the sort of systems level glue that you actually need assembly for - I wouldn't try to write a project in it)

Things I probably could claim I knew, but won't:
BASIC (silly)
SQL (not considering it a language)
Javascript (lost to depths of time - could of course read it)

I know four, (maybe five?) different flavours of basic (BBC-BASIC, QBASIC, VBASIC, VBScript, and I'm possibly counting VBA), along with PHP, Javascript, python and POV-ray SDL (which IS a programming language). How many do I put in the poll?

I've also messed with DOS and the Oblivion Scripting language.

Eleven? I really know 11 languages? I've suprised myself.

Yeah, we agreed earlier that only Turing-Complete languages should count. Unless your markup language is Turning-Complete. I guess Postscript would count.

I gave myself 4, because a few of these I'm not sure count as 'normal' languages.

PHP
SQL ( ? )
Python
TI-8x basic ( ? )
LSL (see: Second Life)
Java
Javascript ( ? )
HTML ( ? ) (sorry, just had to put it in. ;P )

Listed more-or-less from most to least familiar. (TI-8x gets such a high rating because I spent most of highschool programming it so i could ignore my classes -.-; )

We already discussed SQL. We agreed on the criteria that only Turing complete languages counted, which means that SQL is not a programming language.
Some of us exist to find out what can and can't be done.

Others exist to hold the beer.

I'm only a student and not too much into programming yet but I already know
* Basic
quite well because we did a huge section on that in my computer science class. Now, we startet a
* Java
section and I'm doing quite well, too.
In my free time, I just started
* C++
but I'm not far beyond hello world. But because my intention is to get into these three, I selected [x] 3!

In approximate order of proficiency, from most to least:

  1. Java
  2. C
  3. Python
  4. C++ (does this count as a separate language to C?)
  5. POV-Ray SDL (it's Turing complete...)
  6. XSLT (it's Turing complete too!)
  7. NWScript (I'm guessing this is Turing complete, don't have any proof though)
  8. QuickBasic (my first programming language...)
  9. Haskell (yuck)
  10. x86 assembly (a very application-specific dialect of NASM syntax; I wouldn't be able to write a standalone program in it)

It is. It's not hard to simulate a Turing machine in it. Not that I know how, but I know how to implement brainfuck in it, which is also Turing complete.

Well, I counted SQL but didn’t count sed when I tallied in my head; I guess I’ll do it the other way around then. :)

Languages I use all the time:
  • Perl
  • XSLT
  • Javascript
  • Shell
  • Vim script
  • Template Toolkit
Languages I know well but don’t use regularly:
  • x86 asm
  • sed
  • C
  • GNU make
  • awk
Languages I wrote substantial amounts of code in a long time ago:
  • BASIC
  • (Turbo) Pascal
  • FORTH
  • Postscript
Languages I have superficial familiarity with (ie. could hack existing code in a pinch):
  • Java
  • PHP
  • Python
  • Lisp
Languages I do not know but want to add to the list:
  • Haskell
  • Unlambda

I second (third?) the comments that these lists should be limited to those you are comfortable coding during a job interview without reference material. All too often these threads bring out people who list every language they've heard of.

In which case, I'd list C, C++, Java, and possibly SQL.

Languages I've ever programmed in (read: wrote a program that compiled/ran) also include BASIC, qBasic, TI-BASIC, Pascal, Brainfuck, Javascript, Python, Perl, x86, MATLAB, and an assembly language I created that ran on a CPU simulation I assembled from instances of Transistor and Wire classes (that was a fun week).
More xkcd than your mom.

Re: How many programming languages do you know?

It really depends on how you count. In order of best knowledge to worst, here goes:

Python (my favorite language)
C/C++
Shell (sh)
TI assembler
(Don't even really bother counting the ones below -- I've only had a little bit of experience with them.)
DOS Batch
PHP
Perl

Maybe I'll learn LISP and Haskell one day. No plans soon, though. No time.
