Are you a web programmer? If yes, what language programs can you do?

As for actual programing languages, PHP. I use MySQL for databases. If you count (X)HTML and CSS, I use those too. I joke that I dream in XHTML and CSS! I've tried to get into ROR (Ruby on Rails), but I've having trouble grasping it. I am a sucker for PHP, though. I've build multiple CMS'es, blogging scripts, guestbooks, and many other small scripts used to run sites. I love it. I can edit CGI, though not code in it.

I started off with HTML (I consider that a 'language' hehe). My first programming language (not going to count C++, since I didn't ever understand it back when I was learning it for a class) was PHP. I used it with MySQL when I needed a database. Currently, I'm programming with Ruby (on Rails). It's more logical than any of the other ones and just more simple. I never bothered with asp.NET - ASP is a horrible language now (Very depreciated -- even Microsoft has stopped supporting it). C++ has it's place, but it isn't online. Java is alright, but you can do a lot of the same things with Ruby on Rails. PHP is okay, but can use a few improvements.
