I will keep my list small but here are the ones I use throughout
- SQL (MySQL)
- PL/SQL (Oracle)
- VB .Net
- T-SQL (MS-SQL)
Bit of everything. Mostly back end work.
Knowing so many languages, can you give a tip or two on how you masters them all?I’m slowly getting into Ruby + Rails. I think my biggest problem is to put my newly acquired knowledges into any practical real world example.
Best tip is to think what the goals and strengths of each language are. Find a small project to work on as a hobby that exercises those goals.
You learn the most from your second language. When you learn the first one, you rote learn lot of stuff, and not necessarily think too much about why things are done that way. When you learn another language, you think more about the differences.
You see a lot of similarities to things you’ve done before, and the syntax and details gets easier to understand, and it’s mostly about understanding the higher level concepts.Other than that, find a good source for the standard library API docs for a language, keep it handy. The core language and syntax is easy learn, but understanding the libraries can be much harder as there is so much information to absorb.
Thanks for the valuable inputs sir, really appreciate it!
