Youngsters. I started in HTML at 16.

PHP, HTML, CSS, AJAX and JS, probably. Definitely PHP :)
AJAX isn't a language. It's part of Javascript.

Well, if we start to count on that; we'd have to say then;

1- HTML is not a programming language; as refered in its name, its just a mark-up language.
2- JavaScript is not a programming language either, again as refered in name, its a scripting language
3- CSS is not a programming language either; see the name again.. :)
4- AJAX is definitly not a language, it's better called a set of JS methods and libraries.

Accordingly the only programming language counted in the list is PHP; besides it's being counted in scripting languages at some places.

Whatever, I guess our young friend has a long way to go; but being eager and having enough opportunities he's getting fast to where he likes. Still worth to appreciate though.

Being a scripting language doesn't stop it being a programming language provided it means the criteria for being a programming language, which ultimately comes down to 'does it have variables, can it jump around and can it create loop conditions' and both JS and PHP satisfy.

Decrying it as a scripting language instead of a programming language is like trying to argue that a truck is not a vehicle, because your idea of a vehicle is a car.

The definition of a scripting language really comes down to the fact that it is interpreted not compiled, but it doesn't prevent either from being actual programming languages. Heck, you can actually write a web*server* in JavaScript.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Arantor, you are very fast on objection. So fast that you are replying without carefully reading. :)

I said "if we start to count on that".. I don't personally think JS is not a programming language. Furthermore, its being a programming language doesn't affect others being not.

lmao, nice shot.

Though guys, I didn't mean to say create your Place O' Spam here, please stop spamming this topic with this discussion, else I'll have to split it into another discussion and I don't feel like doing so.

I'm very fast to tell people when they are wrong. JS is in any way you care to slice it, a programming language.

There are people who have written complete PC emulators in JavaScript (capable of running Linux in the browser and nothing else), so no matter how much you think it isn't, it is a programming language.

Thus you're very fast on being wrong ;) But it's not important, although you don't see my point, I see yours.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript

JavaScript (sometimes abbreviated JS) is a prototype-based scripting language that is dynamic, weakly typed, general purpose programming language and has first-class functions. It is a multi-paradigm language, supporting object-oriented,[5] imperative, and functional[1][6] programming styles.

Sorry Yoshi2889 I might have caused people spam this topic because someone who thinks he has the best of knowledge has blocked my PMs although he has never received a PM from me for this thing.

Well, having a knowledge about programming languages definitely requires enough reading and understanding abilities which sometimes people refuse to have.

* Elmacik quotes himself again and needs to tell for the third time.

Meh I don't mind, I can split it if I want to :P

Arantor: Elmacik is clearly giving an opinion there. Just because you don't agree doesn't mean you can change his mind about it.

Do you play video game consoles?  Which ones?
Nope.

Finally someone who doesn't play game consoles as me :P

So, when you are bored and can't go out to play and have no homework as such, what do you do on a computer?

Can't we just agree on calling all languages mumbo jumbo instead? That's essentially  what they are anyway, no?

@The Craw - Oh I know...I started with HTML when I was 12, but I never took programming seriously until I was 14. Jealous lol.
lol, I started with HTML and a bit of CSS when I was like 10.

You're starting to seem too much like a new me. Started HTML/CSS at 10, joined the SMF team at 13, left the team at 15, found the meaning of life at 16.5, had first girl/boyfriend at 34...?
