I've gotten into development with awk lately, and I've been impressed by its performance.

I used to code in PHP, but I have been using Perl a lot this year. Bash scripts are still the bread and butter of my desktop setup though

Ruby. It feels fresh and modern, supports OOP without weird awkward hacks, and it's super versatile and is well supported to the point that it can be used to code pretty much anything from web applications to GUIs to games.

I voted C++, but only because bash wasn't on the list. Where is
it? I'm learning both and so far bash has been my favorite.

Still Python, if only for its versatility and for being excellently supported by every Linux distribution.

I've voted C as it's the best language ever and that hasn't changed this year. But I would've liked to see more scripting options here - bash and powershell spring to mind.

Without doubt Python, although JavaScript is nice as well.
