    Found this on a forum -

    In response to the question “Which programming language should I learn first?” - one user responds:

    Depends.

    To program in an expressive and powerful language: Python
    To get a website up quickly: PHP
    To mingle with programmers who call themselves “rockstars”: Ruby.
    To really learn to program: C.
    To achieve enlightenment: Scheme.
    To feel depressed: SQL
    To drop a chromosome: Microsoft Visual Basic
    To get a guaranteed, mediocre, but well paying job writing financial applications in a cubicle under fluorescent lights: Java.
    To do the same thing with certifications and letters after your name: C#
    To achieve a magical sense of childlike wonder that you have a hard time differentiating from megalomania: Objective C

    I could go on… but I’m not feeling hateful enough today.

    Well Ragini, I suppose you aren't into programming. So let me explain..
    I think the writer just put in his thoughts abt each programming language in a witty manner.
    I work with C# and totally agree with the line on it - working all day in a cubicle under lights, and certified too! :thumbsup
    About VB too, seems to be right - it is easy to code :crazy
    SQL - well, stored procs, triggers etc are not so easy to debug :rant
    About C and objective C too it's true - rather lot of hard work :bowdown to give simple output.. but you can be happy about it..
    I guess the other languages too just follow suite.

    Dear Felsi,
    I reply to :
    That depends on waht language you use in dot net.

    About work timing in the UAE..
    As with programmers all around the world, hardly anyone in the mid-career or junior levels stick to timing in a full-time programming job. It's just deadlines that have to be met at any cost - even if that means 10-14 hrs of work in a day.
