Programming, ay?
C in hardware applications, microchips, microprocessors and no/small OS.
C++ for more pleasureful and enjoyable work with OS (Win and Lin, sorry Mac...).

I use nothing that was here before or that came after these. They are just the perfect, complex and powerful kernel of all that is out there.

Oh, yeah, Assembler - for the university, but no real application.

Prior to C, assembler was the method of choice (over binary!) for hardware. So out of necessity I learned the HP and IBM assemblers of the '60's which became the basis for all assemblers of the computer boom of the 80's. As of late everyone and their brother has written a C assembler for IC programming. I agree, C is a powerhouse in this area.

During that era, assembler was important in computationally intensive applications. Even in supercomputer applications we would re-write the core of some programs in assembler to reduce the computation time from weeks to days. Since then, both the chip speeds and compiler technology has drastically improved. It is the compiler technology from Sun Microsystems, IBM, and the former Cray that I salute! By the 90's we would look at the compiler-generated assembler and find no room for improvement -- in fact often better code than we would have written.

Today I went to Staples and bought a memory stick, 16GB for $7.99 + tax. Twenty years ago at the supercomputer center we bought 16GB of disk drives for one of our computers. The total cost of the drives was over $5M and required 1000 sq.ft. of floor space in an air cooled environment.
