    Do you think this question hasn't been answered like 342904802934 times already? How about you take a look around first? :)

    you will get bored if you are not interested in the language you are about to learn! know what and why you want to learn something new... as a programmer myself, I never get bored, as I always have new ideas and new goals in my programming career i want to achieve!

    regards,
    z.

    I use botlang 4.1 to make my bots. It's highly efficient, gluten free and runs every functions all with just the IF and ELSE statements.

    Code:

    P.S. jazzc is the creator of the botlang language.

    well.. python. one reason: the mit guys set it up as the de facto language for their undergrads to start learning computer science.
    that's because it's so easy to use that you can focus on the concepts and not on that f***g bug where you referenced a null pointer and it all crashes.

    Java if you are looking to work in Enterprise industry. C# if you want to loose your soul.
    Anything else it's just fine, find one language you are comfortable at if you are a newbie and grasp the basics, then you can pretty much switch to any other one.

    I would recommend plain C for the beginning. But more importantly, I also recommend not to start with java.

    C# has excellent support/documentation/libraries and an unmatched IDE, its great for bots. Learn PHP for smashing little things out quick :)

    Absolutely. Learning C first will give you a sound understanding of what goes on underneath. It's fairly close to working with the actual instructions a CPU goes through, without going all the way to assembly language.

    it is true that it has been answered that exact number of times. lol. but you should not be that harsh maybe. I guess it is tiring to see and answer the same question again and again but i believe you also become more and more educated as you answer.

    For a beginner, Javascript (node.js), Python, or Ruby. I'd suggest C like the others if it was 1995.

    Python all the way. Huge open source community. Easy to learn. Incredibly powerful.

    honestly Java sucks for many reasons.

    C++ is what you want long-term. Trust me.
