Before starting university I had a solid knowledge of MSX Basic (as well as GWBasic, visual basic after the university and Gambas several years later).
Back at University we learnt:
- Pascal (turbo pascal, borland pascal, borland delphi)
- Assembler (in real mode)
- FoxPro (and dbase and foxbase)
- ohhhh and SIMAN.
- After the University:
- Progress 4GL
- Shell (bash) Scripting
not a big deal. The point is knowing the algorithms, learning how to think and use the language structures. Well:Except for prolog, it was sooo… different.
Anyway: I no longer program these days, but if I wish to… I can simply learn a new one. But the point is making a good use of them.
