You'd have to port .NET to it, but I don't think it has enough memory.

I'm told there's a BASIC compiler for Atmel chips (BASCOM?). Other than that, assembly is the only other option I know of.

Joe neglected to mention that C is the language used to program the Axon.

I've not seen anyone else use other languages.

I find that I learn languages by coding.  I've not done much with coding C for non-MCU stuff recently... but there should be plenty of info online for learning the general syntax (math, function calls, variable types, etc) by working with command line input/output.

The Axon is supported by Webbotlib. WebbotLib supports only C and C++.

You could of course use whatever language you want, as long as your compiler supports that language. But I wouldn't know of any to recommend other than gcc.
