Do you use the same language, for web development, and game programming? I've never realized how logical that is, because using a language like Python, is alot more fun than using PHP.

Do you only use one language for web development, or only one language for game programming?

I can't say I have a particular go-to for either task, although I certainly have preferences for specific types of tasks in either area, so my answer would have to be "sometimes". smile.png


It's well worth spending some time learning different language and technologies in any area so that you can pick and choose those appropriate to the tasks you're working on at any given time.

Is there a language that can be comfortably used in both situations?

I use Ruby for web apps. Although I would love to use Ruby for gamedev, I don't think it's that common. Plus it all depends on what platform you are targeting. I wouldn't use C++ if I'm targeting .NET, for example.

So yeah, ultimately you need to use multiple languages.

I would be comfortable with using Perl, Haxe, Python, in both situations.

But I've realized using the same language for everything, isn't as good as I originally thought.

A good programmer needs to be experienced in multiple languages.

Web: I regularly use PHP, Scala, Java, Ruby, Javascript, SQL, Python
Games: I regularly use C++ or C#

The only ones on either list that regularly gets use on both (from other people) would by Python and C#. Maybe a little Java.

C# for web (ASP.NET MVC) and everything else, although I try to include C++ when I can for the sake of experience, and hopefully when im doing things a bit more lower level include CIL / ASM / C to the equation for the sake of experience ;) Edited by Dynamo_Maestro
