    So I've decided to get into programming.

    What are the best languages to know? Like say I wanted to set up a script that would make Facebook accounts, or something useful like that?

    Can that be done entirely with php, or would I need to know C, C++, etc?

    depends...I prefer scripting languages, like php, ruby, perl. Of those I would go ruby. Perl is kind of a lost art these days. PHP is more for web. If you want to distribute a desktop app, then I'd go with java or .net/c#

    Anything can be done with anything really. You could accomplish that with a bash script...

    Anyways, if it's scripting you are looking for (high level scripting at that) go for python. Do not go for C, C++ that would be overkill from my point of view. Go with python its got great library support for most things (so you don't need to reinvent the wheel every time) and a helpful community.

    +1 for Python
    It's crossplatform, easy to learn and quick to develop apps/scripts. I'm mostly developing custom bots for my own use. My setup is fully portable, just copy/paste and I can use script on another machine/VPS without compiling it to binary or installing Python interpreter and libraries.

    In general, PHP has a very large support network. Pretty much any issue you'll have with PHP can be found on google with a solution. Although, it's a scripting language so it's only really used for the web. C/C++ might be tricky to learn for a beginner but not impossible. Python is my favourite choice of language, it's simple to learn and developing would be faster than if you were using C/C++.

    I learned Java and after that I hadn't any problems with learning other languages like C, C++, PHP.

    .Net :)
    I am not a advanced coder,but I found .Net to be easiest to learn.

    its a big challenge to make accounts on these big sites. the problem is not that you need a special programming language, its the reverse engineering of all their java script code to know all the date that needs to be send to their servers.

    thats the reason why i started with autoit many years ago. this language is the best i used for browser automation. with that you get your first successes within hours. but i have to admit that the functionality is limited and in depth it gets really hard to import functions from libraries and so on.

    python is my favorite for fast scripting with its complete library collection.
    and for "real" programs like tasks that include computer vision nothing goes over c/c++!

    Java is great too - it is elastic language.

    I've heard from numerous people that Python is pretty cool programming language.
    Maybe you should consider checking that out?

    Depends on what you're focusing on. If you want to sell a product like a submitter for any specific platform, it's a must to have an easy to use interface. Other than that, depends on your targets as well and about the volume you're planning to achieve. Serverside can obviously handle way bigger volume than standalone apps.

    Do you have any background on programming ?
    Do you have a good logic background ?

    If you dont have either, I would say learning any programming will be pretty difficult but not impossible.

    If I had to recommend you, I would say php or python for WEB development and C# or Java for applications, why ? These have plenty of material online that you can use in your learning course. books. videos and more and are widely used all around.

    Both java can run on linux, windows and mac, they do however need to be installed, java and/or mono depending on what you select same goes for python and php.

    If you have a good backgroudn on programming I would say C++ for several reason.


    As for what you will develop may affect what language you will be using for example if you want it to have a GUI or not, if you want it to run on windows or on a server and so on, so prior to selecting a on what you will be developing I guess it would be better if u think of what you want it to do and look.
