I used to be a programmer: I coded for a living, and also for fun. Now I'm a business analyst and I only code for fun.
LISP will always have a special place in my heart because it was the first programming language I worked with. I think SQL is awesome because it sounds like I'm barking orders at someone: "SELECT this!", "UPDATE that!". And Python won my obsessive-compulsive heart the moment I learned that code indentation is mandatory.
