    Hi, I already know how to program and I was looking to pick up another language. I currently know Php/JavaScript/web development stuff. Then a decent chunk of all of the main languages. I was going to make a pinterest bot, or try to, in Php but then I noticed that I couldn't deal with loggin in to websites. Would I be able to make scripts where I could log in, scrape some data, add some pins and logout (the repeat on like 500 more accounts) in python, or any other language?

    either vb.net or c# (.net framework) would be your best bet

    PHP can handle all of this. You have to use cURL. Google it.

    visual basic is an easy language to learn you can also have a look at ubot studio this involves no programming and you can pretty much make any type of bot

    Hope this helps

    You can do everything in PHP if you'd like but it would be more efficient if you were to use C#, plus there's lots of libraries that will make your life easier.

    Try C#, it's a powerful language and there are third-party libraries that will make your development time shorter.

    If you already know bits of different languages, don't learn a language, learn the HTTP protocol.

    The rest will fall into place.

    I already have a bot that does just that :) It's written in VB.Net, and is posted for DL over in the Black Hat Tools section (it's free). It only manages one account at a time so it might not suit your needs, but I could hook you up with a custom version that can rotate accounts, and I won't even charge you :)

    Python + Selenium would be a great way to get you started. You can literally automate anything as you are actually using webdriver to control a real web browser such as Firefox or Chrome etc. People nowadays seem to rush for Zennoposter, but in my opinion if you are willing to learn Zennoposter from scratch, it wouldn't take you more time learning Python + Selenium. Since you are a PHP programmer, I bet it won't take you long to get the hang of python. And with a little bit knowledge of multi-threading, it will be fairly fast to accomplish any job you want. :)

    I can make your bot for free and you can market it and then we can split the profit. PM me if you are interested.

    Java or C#, lots of online tutorials & 3rd party libraries for both languages.

    I 100% agree, if you did not have a background with programming I would just say to get a copy of iMacro or some other program for lay people.
    I have had issues in the past with certain dynamic javascript websites and python+Selenium was a lifesaver.

    C++ is indeed powerful, but doesn't lend itself well to a GUI. C# is excellent, as is VB.Net. Visual Studio in either of those languages is top-notch for botting.

    i have a server in france and all of our scripts are written in PHP. Great if you are on a LAMP server.
