yesterday, a friend of mine who develops in all kinds of languages but mostly VisualBasic.NET, told me he only listens to the regular kind of pop and rock, and sometimes to heavy metal kind of things.
But -he told me- when he had something to do in C-style code he immediately changes the genre to 128BPM house and techno, because the more technical structure in this kind of music gets him in the right mood for this kind of languages.
Next, when it came to programming Microchip 8-bit assembly he changes to glitch-core and industrial noise and stuff like that, because of the computerized glitchy sounds.
I find that i do the same: i code in VB.NET, starting out on C++ and sometimes i catch myself screwing around in LOGO (isn't really a programming language, though).
For me it's only metal for VB, dark ambient for C++ (because of it's minimalistic emptyness-style i recognize in it) and when i do LOGO, it changes to psychedelic trance like the old Infected Mushroom and Yahel and stuff.
All together, my question is do you people find the same? And if yes, what kind of music for what language?
