web developer professionally

That's PHP (often object-oriented), mysql, postgres, HTML, CSS, XML usually, with a tiny bit of JavaScript, occasional Perl, and just starting to work on a project which involves some PL/SQL.

Also know C++, VB6, VBA, some Java, a little .NET (C#, VB and ASP), and a tiny bit of Python.

Have in the past (school and university), used logo, pascal, tried my hand at x86 assembler, and used some weird and contrived CNC languages.

Yeah, in Basic (hope this doesn't show my age too much!), VB, C, C++, C#, Java, Pascal, PHP, perl, ASM (16bit), *beep*, prolog, possibly a few that I've missed.

Im not a developer, i have however had litte experience in programming. Streching from courses in C++, HTML/CSS/Javascript, PHP/MySQL, Java (from my studies at the university) .. to Basic, VB, Pascal (as a hobby).

As in regards to the "stupid questions" statement; i quote "there are no stupid questions, only stupid awnsers". But there is a big difference in how people look for information, and what irritates us all is people who don't take the time to look for it by themself first, rather expecting others to hand them the awnsers.

I'm finishing a master in computer science.

I program mostly in C++, C#, Java and PHP (but also in VB, VBA, VBDOS, XHTML, CSS, SQL, XML, Perl (CGI), ADA95, FORTRAN, LALCYBAS) and UML as modeling language. In fact I'm more into games and applications for Windows than website development.

C/C++/C#, Java, and the usual HTML/XHTML/PHP/MySQL here. 8)

Of course, after C and Java, everything else has a 99% overlap with the two, as long as it's not too dead (Basic, Fortan, Scheme, etc)

From what I gather, fortran is still alive and kicking, but its very specialist - structural engineering is where I know one person using it.

Basic isn't dead either, ASP is most certainly still using the language, albeit morphed beyond recognition

You should find going from Java to PHP pretty easy - the syntax is pretty similar aside from foreach loops and accessing objects (-> instead of .). Going from PHP to Java was harder for me - getting used to explicitly typed variables & fixed size arrays being one of the main difficulties... I wish I hadn't started with PHP really.
