    I just started learning how to code a couple weeks ago, picked up some XHTML, CSS, Javascript and currently learning MySQL and PHP.

    I just got an apprenticeship in software development which I'll be starting next month so I want to learn some languages which I can apply right now and build some sort of project i.e. a game.

    The language I was hoping to learn was Objective C so I could code iOS apps but at the moment I can't afford a mac. So what good programming languages could I learn to build a browser based game in a month or so?

    Appreciate any input :D

    Most of the browser games are built in PHP. You can have a look at ragezone forums, they focus in mmorpg development

    Thanks muppets. I thought PHP was just used to send information back to servers or something? Guess I have a lot to learn:D

    I'll take a look at ragezone but building a mmorpg would be way behind my reach.

    What do you think of HTML5 for a browser game, would that be a good choice?

    Most browser games ARE NOT built with PHP. HTML5 & Javascript are the current standard for browser game development.

    You will have to split the project into two parts : - Frontend , Backend .

    Frontend is what users will see . You can chose javascript , flash etc .

    Backend will require php , python , ruby etc for server side & if required a database .

    This is assuming you have a basic script/storyline for your game ready .
