Fridays are usually reserved for my entertainment/fun stuff posts and I was initially supposed to post a review of something or other, but I got lazy. So instead I decided to to a poll. It is also a nice choice for Fridays because it will stay on top of the blog for 3 days allowing it to gather more responses until it is pushed down and off the front page.
This is a tech related blog (well, more or less – I tend to branch out more and more) and I have tons of very technical posts here aimed at software developers, and talking about particular programming languages. I know that not all my regular readers are programmers though. I also know that I have some regular readers who never, ever But it would be nice to see what kind of languages are people who visit here using on a day to day basis. I think we did something similar before but not in a form of a poll. This time around I want to know what language you actually use on a daily basis. The stuff you use for work. We all have favorite languages, but these are not always the ones we use at work. So tell me about the language you need to use for better or for worse right now.
Please be nice with the write-in option. If I see too much of Chuck Norris I’m going to disable it. Use it wisely!
Done? Ok, now tell me about your favorite language. The one that you wish you were using at work. Your go-to language for all side projects. Or perhaps the language you wish you had time to learn better. I want to see if the two polls sync up significantly or if there is a wide disparity between them:
Unfortunately my sample size is pretty small as most polls get under a 100 votes so we might not see any interesting patterns emerging out of this exercise. But there is always a chance that by some random fluke Digg or Redit will bubble this up to the front page and we get more votes before the server catches on fire and melts down. So digg me up if you can!
Oh, and if you are not a programmer and you don’t plan to be, hit the polls too so that I can see comparatively how many people come here for the off-color humor and randomness that I seem to deliver in between my programming related posts. :)
