    Hey guys,

    I'm planing to learn a programming language instead of buying ubot (atm), but don't know wich would be the best for me to learn. Java, C#, Air, ...?

    I'm not a complete newb in this area, so I know web- and markup languages (html, css, js, php) and I'm also good with MSL (mirc scripting language). I know, MSL is not a real programming language, but I already did a lot of "bots"/automasations like forum posters, harvester, account creatos etc. with it - works fine but it's to slow for my needs..

    I'm going to learn: creating account on any sites, with email verification, proxy support etc. So the main part is webbased stuff with some additional functions.

    Could you recommend me a language for my needs, with a good IDE, compiler and whatever I need.. Also some good (e)books, tutorials or anything you prefer..


    kindly regards
    </geek>

    If you know php you might find C# somewhat simply to come to grips with.

    There's oodles of content available on the Web for the language as well.

    If you want to go into bot-programming I think C# is your choice ;)

    Php and take a look at Visual Studio.net, it's not sexy but its a workhouse for knocking out apps quickly and building commercial packages.

    You should go for C programming to strengthen your basic logic and concepts
    You can then move on to anyother language

    C# is really easy to start with. You may try Java as well, but it's less 'visual'...

    By the way, Java is great if you plan to release your apps on Windows, Linux and OS X. But yeah, harder than C#.

    And once you know C#, you can do almost anything you want in .NET. :)

    I recommend JavaScript which has a bright future. However if you learn C/C++ first, everything else is piece of cake then.

    Most of the people recommends PHP and c#

    You can also try Python, Ruby etc Its more powerful

    C# is "easy" language, i have been using it for ~4 years.
    There are flaws, but it is a good language. C/C++ is a big mess, a lot of you won't agree with me, but i really like the RAD environment, which C# and VS.NET provide.

    totally wrong, you cant move to anyother lenguage.

    c is Procedural.

    you should try to learn an object oriented lenguage instead.

    Of course he can - he 'll just learn OOP.

    Besides, OO is not the end-of-all-paradigms in this world.
