Couple questions for Programmers

1. What are you programming in mainly these days?
2. What platform primarily?
3. Which IDE?
3. Any web programming and on what web server?
4. Your favourite compiler?

1) These days, mainly Matlab and Python, but I am yearning for some C++
2) Unix
3) Nothing I do requires an IDE, so it's a text editor plus a compiler.
4) Nope
5) G++, works, does what I need

1. Java - web apps and legacy app integration.
2. It's Java so the platform doesn't matter.
3. IBM RAD7 - not my choice.
4. Yes, WebSphere.
5. Favorite compiler? That's way too geeky to even care about.

My first major project was written in Micro-Focus Cobol to run on XT compatible systems... and I have written several MVS programs as well.

I still yearn for the days of Cobol with the nice well defined data environment...

It seems so long ago, but I would love to be coding Cobol again.

Almost exclusively. The code I write is used in ASP.NET web applications. IIS 6 and 7

I can't claim to have a favorite, but I use the Microsoft one because it's basically the only option for the work I do.

Edit: In the past, I'd have answered this with the appropriate answers for developing php applications for LAMP using Dreamweaver

There are some applications that will still be around for the foreseeable future. I recall the cartoon I about 9 years ago, where some people in the year 9999 had brought some guy out of cryogenesis, and they said to him... "excuse us, but we saw here that you know CoBOL".

Nice to see some mainframers. I am a z/OS assembler programmer. These days, I am doing development on USS and using the makefile process. Not bad.

My development is in assembler but I do code Cobol, C, and PL/I test programs.

I'm not coding anything these days but back in my prime...

1) C++ for main apps. Perl for minor stuff and PHP for the web interfaces.
2) UNIX.
3) None, good ol' pico.
Please note you wrote #3 twice...
3) Apache, but only for web interfaces to the main app, when required. I hate web programming.
4) G++.

I've used the MS Visual thingies for Basic, C and C++. They are nice once you learn to use the darn ultracomplicated interface. Windows programming and UNIX programming are very different worlds.

I do most of my development work with VBA in Access.....make access do all sorts of things its not originally designed to do. Moving into being a SQL developer supporting an Oracle Financials application. Have done VB, Foxpro, Visual Foxpro, and Clipper. All Database applications with either native mdb files or MS SQL Server.

I am an etl programmer. This thread is almost not applicable to me.

1. Datastage at the moment. Though it is more of a visual etl tool.
2. Windoze
3. Notepad at most.
4. I have used html in the past for a website I had. Booooorrrriiiiiinnnnngggg
5. Datastage

Anyhow, I am now looking at learning either more on database design or another etl software package.

3. Unix is an IDE XCode/IB for Cocoa stuff
3. As little as possible/apache/whatever language suits the project
4. Is there even a choice these days? gcc
