I'm in the same boat as you. I'm learning Java currently. I'm enjoying the process in its entirety. I look forward to contributing and learning here with everyone. Good luck on your journey with Java  :D

Java is a neat language, it's what I develop most of my stuff with. Have only made 1 application I can say I'm proud of though :P

Nice! I have made a few small applications myself. Do you plan on making anymore?

I wrote my first program in BASIC IN 1974. Since then I've dabbled with Assembler, C, C#, VFP, Java, Pascal and Python. I like [b]VFP[\b] the best as it's so quick to develop in yet has full access to the Windows API. I loathe all dot net - massively bloated languages.
 
I'm not a web expert but although I use HTML5 and CSS, I'm lazy and use Adobe Muse to do the hard work.

Wow, you have been programming for a long time. That's a wealth of knowledge!

If you don't mind me asking, what is VFP? A quick search of the acronym resulted in Visual FoxPro.

You need to know a good number of languages and technologies nowadays, and I've had quite a bit of experience in some but some (a lot, actually) more from an interest point of view rather than a professional one.  But here goes:
 
BASIC (ZX Basic, BBC Basic, Harris H500 Basic)
PASCAL (at college)
COBOL (at college)
6800 Assembler
6502 Assembler
Z80 Assembler
x86 Assembler (a little bit)
C
HTML (more experience with 4.01, need to get going with 5)
CSS
JavaScript
PowerBuilder (a previous job required this)
Some flavours of SQL
PHP
VBScript (I guess this counts!!!)
 
Sounds more impressive than it is really as I've done more in some than others and in some cases it's just been dabbling (due to lack of time).  Would love to get some experience in technologies such as Java, C++ and C# ...... time ....

Quite the resume! I'm learning Java myself. Have you started with any of those you mentioned you wanted to learn more about? All three languages seem to be quite popular.

Algol 56 was the first back in 63 then had to switch to  Fortran when they replaced the old computer.  Did some assembly programming in 6800, 8080, and Z80 in the 70s..  BASIC when I got my first PC, Smalltalk, Word Basic, Perl, Javascript and some C & Visual Basic 
Wouldn't claim to be an expert in any of them tho.

Cool, you have been involved in technology for a long time. Do you still code?

I plan on it, I just have to come up with ideas for what I want to make. I normally just recreate certain tools to see if I can do it. For fun I decided to recreate Blueline in Java, which turned out great.

Nice job! That seems like a daunting task. I definitely wouldn't mind collaborating on a project with others sometime in the future. What IDE do you use?

It was a little slow at first, but the Preview bit definitely took the most time. Right now I use Eclipse for all my Java projects.

Oh OK, I'm currently using IntelliJ IDEA. That was a good idea to remake the BL in Java. For me, one of the most difficult issues is actually coming up with a project from scratch. Just got to keep chipping at it!

Truthfully, I really remade Blueline because I didn't dig the whole 240 user button setup (sorry Azarl :P). It's not a bad system, it just struck me as kind of odd. This is how I handle it in my version.

Hi FBE34, it all takes time and there are lots of demands on my time all the while.

However, one project I am working on is adding functionality to a website that I'm webmaster for:

http://www.goosedale...yingclub.co.uk/

It's the gallery functionality I'm working on now, at the moment it just shows a "Coming soon" page.

I'm in the club there as well, and over the past few weeks I've managed to get the site / forum integration working more the way I want it.

Languages: PHP, HTML (4.01 and 5), CSS (2 and 3), MySQL, JavaScript.

I like the overall layout of the website. I eventually want to put a few websites out myself. A personal blog to just have a place to post my thoughts. I know some HTML and CSS, but no experience with the others you mentioned. I have heard of them and know their purpose, though.
