I want to write some message about some programming language.

The more I write a code on "language name" the more it's pleased to me.

Is this sentence correct? How I should say it correctly?

    The more code I write in Python, the more it pleases me.

  • Yes, that is correct, but there are some errors. If I were you, I would have written 'the more I code X the more it pleases me'.

    I prefer code in SomeLanguage to code SomeLanguage, personally. I reserve the latter syntax for things like coding a new game engine.

    I'd combine the comments of both Jim and snailboat. First, the proper prepositional phrase--I believe in both BrE and AmE--would be in language name. Second, I prefer it with a comma separating the clauses, but comma usage is subjective. I'd also consider not using the present perfect here. I'm not sure about BrE, but AmE would call for the simple present tense (the more it pleases me) Nov 30 '13 at 17:55

Putting the notes from the comments together, it appears that we recommend

The more I code in (language-name), the more it pleases me.
