Just wondering because I don't really know what would be the best language to start with first.
Programming for what purpose? What kind of programms do you want to write?
Or could you give me good programming languages to start with for different purposes?
C# is a great language to start with. It is approachable, yet very powerful. You can get jobs with it, you can do a lot. Look at "XNA" if you want to get started with some basic game programming, which you can still do a lot with. If you love Linux, look at Java instead, its very close to C# too.
I would say Objective-C or any variation of C because then you can program games for the iPhone and make $$$$.
If you are talented in Maths, then you won't have a big trouble in learning how to code.
I learned how to code for myself in PHP. A week ago I needed to make a iMacro, so I had to learn VBS. In 6 hours I had my macro coded in VBS, a language that I had never seen.
I would recommend that you start in PHP or in C#. PHP will be good for you to code some web apps. C# to code all kind of apps.
start from C to OOP - C++, then rest is piece of a cake
C++ is the best language to code and if you learn C++ it will be basically the same as the other language just some Syntax differences.
Because if you learn C++ you will know a lot of things and you can start to learn PHP fast. Also you can learn Java.
Also you can learn Game Programing.
So basically all the Programing languages have :
So if you know the main things on one Programing language you will learn the other programing languages fast.
I would suggest you c++ it is harder but it is better.
Wow! That's quick .. Can u share the resources u learn this from?
As I said, programming (at least in its basic form) it's pure logic. Just open up some random programs that you have and try to understand what each line of code does.
The best for you will certainly be look for some simple programs with comments that explain what each thing is doing.
After you understand, move on to more complex programs.
I learned PHP 2 years ago by analyzing those crappy Paid To Click scripts, because I didn't have money to pay for one and I had to modify one until it looked unique
Now I'm able to code anything in PHP, I even made my own game and stuff
I started with c# and it was really easy to learn. They also have a thing called XNA which makes it really easy to make games.
For games start with VB 6 and after that move to VB.NET
Probably English first.
ActionScript 3 for Flash Games
Flash is slowly dying and HTML5 will become a standard in the near future.
You should really go for other options. Some good ones were referred by me and other users.
Any variation of C would be perfect for a start.........
i can tell you c aint fun coding.
im learning that in university right now, java is much more fun.
stupid pointers in c
I'm gonna sugest Python (yeah, yeah I know... Here comes the hate). But it's a pretty straightforward and actually pretty powerful language. You can use it on the web or use it for all kinds of things (automation or whatnot). Move to any variation of C afterwards?
