    Hello,

    I have some HTML and CSS experience, but I want to learn more programming languages. I'll be going back to school soon for computer programming but I would like to learn some things on my own in the meantime.

    Is there a website, tutorials, etc. that anyone can recommend to help me learn new languages?

    I'm looking for a online study course type of setup. That way I can learn properly instead of just poking around on w3school or something similar...

    Thanks!

    Try codeacademy, it's free and you can learn quite a few languages.

    Hello
    There are many online free computer programming courses which can help you for learning. Many site provides tuts for that so google it and read books which can mostly help you . I heard w3schools for programming learning you can use this and one thing remember which you read or learn after that practices it. If any problem you have I will help you. I listed some online study course: 1.Computer Science For Everyone (Start Learning How to Write Programs and Writing Basic Programs), 2.Hobart And William Smith Colleges(Introduction to Programming Using Java, Sixth Edition) etc.

    The best way to learn a new language is to read the official documentation.
    It is the hardest way, because the information they provide is not always in logical order, but it is the fastest way too.

    Learn java it's very easy and powerful.

    The basics of it are:

    You have classes and one main class which contains the main method. A project includes the main class and other classes. Classes define objects or instances. The hello world program for java looks like:

    Code:
    public class HelloWorld{
       public static void main(String[]args){ // Dont' worry about memorizing this, with practice it comes easy
          System.out.println("Hello World!"); // Comments are made like this or like /* text */
       }                                                       // Classes start with capital letters, this class is calling the static method println, static methods are called          directly from the class while normal methods are called from objects of classes
    }

    Forums are good place of learning, you can learn a lot of things in forums, try joining any good coding/programming forum and participate there on regular basis, you would learn a lot of things practically.
