Actual Experience before 2019
The Praxis link to your left details my actual working life. As you will be able to see from that, the long resume, and, I did not let my preferences as far langs are concerned kill my career which is a not uncommon thing observed. So because the vast majority of work since 1980 has been with algol-like langs, dialects of C, so too was most of my working experience, the main exception being Smalltalk which I did learn on the job in the mid '80s.
I have continuously worked with the langs I prefer since then but virtually always on my own.
A consolidation, streamlining has been effected with lisp and haskell (and others such as ocaml) released to be just FPs, and some elements dropped in favor of what's actually shaping up.
- I'm aware these are not at the same level of generality with Prolog and Smalltalk being specific langs, but not addressing further as a) LP and OOP/GUI are well represented by those single langs and b) there are other factors besides these such as Algol/C, etc. Point is to be released from specific lang pinnings except for GUI and LP.
