    JavaScript because it was the first actual language I was introduced to and learned. (I tried learning VB a long time ago when I was a kid but I gave up after like 5 minutes)

    C#, since it is the programming language I used in game development. (Unity, Monogame/XNA)

    But recently studying Python for Pygame.

    I have been working with JavaScript professionally so I would go with it.

    By hobby, I could've picked Lua and Crystal

    Actually, HTML supports a variety of scripts and API features that could easily classify it as a programming language.
    The original conceptual idea was that it's a "markup language", but today, it actually is a programming language/markup hybrid, unlike, for example, XML, which is a pure markup language

    I also used JavaFX at one point to create educational tools for disabled kids, I provided this software out to schools for free but they preferred to use 'Slide shows' because it required no ability on the teachers end to incorporate the program into their lesson

    Sigh... so much for teachers caring

    Slide shows can't adapt to the users learning curve as my program could

    anyway I found java FX interesting because, though it is slightly different from java it is easy to use and you can create 3-D objects :D

    First time I ever got to used 3-D objects or build games

    HOW COULD YOU NOT PUT ASSEMBLY IN THE POLL LIST?

    However, I'd probably vote C# out of the list, as it reeks of beautiful Bill Gates elegance. I love Visual Studio also, really nice UI. And the whole GUI approach to application design is brilliant (Windows Forms).

    Added assembly and other.

    LOOOOL!

    Believe me, Assembly is LOTS of fun if you got a cool motivation!

    Like all things in life, without the right drive, we can't ever do. Academics is one of those things too!

    You can do lots of cool Hardware stuff in it! And not to mention a lot of the stuff taught in those courses often is just good knowledge to know about the Computer, like how Double-type variables and Floats, etc. are made! Excess-N notation, Double Precision Floating Point, etc. And it really gives a good background on other languages too!

    I wouldn't exactly describe my attitude as "enthusiastic" during most of my master's studies. :D
    I kinda half-assed it.

    Probably SQL as I use it at work and enjoy it. Also C# can be cool if i don't have to dwelve into abstract classes and other shit I have no clue about. Want to start learning python.

    I'd recommend you either stick to C# or go with Java as your second language. Python isn't quite as useful, I mostly see it used by novice developers and in educational contexts. If you can already do C#, then Python probably isn't going to teach you much.

    Eh, it is the most used programming language in the world, and is used to do anything from game development and websites to data science. If you want to go c languages, go plain c, as it allows you to interact with a lot more systems than c#. If you want to do just games or application, c# and Java is fine.

    I work with data and python is pretty useful in this area I feel. From data science to visualisations etc. Power BI now can read python scripts. Also heard it is good for automating stuff.
