The viewers are primarily written in C++ along with some 3rd party libraries in C and C++. The server side is complicated and runs on Linux clusters using a variety of open source including Apache, MySQL, Squid, and Linux along with some proprietary software. Inworld dynamics are simulated using the Havoc physics engine. The Second Life article on Wikipedia has a fairly good overview - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Life although it tends to lag behind advancements in technical details.

The viewer architecture is described at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Viewer_architecture

The server architecture is described at http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Server_architecture

Second Life residents use the Linden Scripting Language (LSL) to control the behavior of inworld objects.
