    Hi,

    I am willing to start learning programming language but I am not sure which one should I go for ?

    My main task would be to automate web tasks like website submitter and/or account creators etc.

    Thank you :)

    Well for writing desktop based applications C# is one of the best. You can do that kind of automotive things easily after you learned the language.

    you have several options. for what you want to do most people will tell you VB.net, C#.net, F#.net, or Java. The smartest decision is probably Java since its been around forever and is platform independent code. The easiest to learn would probably be VB.net. F# is worth looking into as well. I recommend Java over all of them.

    For backend stuff like that, PHP is totally awesome. I would not use VB for this.. VB is good for user interfaces. You also want some stuff to run on Linux, and then definitely PHP.

    Think I must go for PHP then.

    Narrowing down, I have following choices
    1- PHP
    2- Python
    3- Ruby
    4- VB
    5- Java (as someone suggested, not sure if it will be good for my purpose)

    PHP is enough for your first projects. Most part of the work can be done with it (+HTML and CSS)

    PHP, Python, Ruby and PERL are all awesome for non-macro'd web automation.

    C is good but for your first programing language start with Java or Python something easy like Python even if you never use it again it will help you program in other languages and learn them much more easy I don't really like .net languages I don't use windows at all but I here good things about C# if you plan on selling programs though C or C++ is much better in my opinion they run much better then .net languages and can run on any OS. If you want a lot of things webbased though go with php.

    I recommend PHP vs its similar alternatives. There's tons of PHP code out there for the functions you will want to do. You can learn from them and in some cases copy them directly for sub-systems. It's very efficient.

    Reading what you want to do again, I think you want to create bots, then:

    -zennoposter/ubot
    -webautomation (yes, this one too)
    -imacros

    They will make your bot. You really don't need to learn a programming language (first) for stuff like that. But if you are going to be in the web for a long time, I recommend learning a backend programming language (like php).

    I do have "zennoposter" (Yeah you heard right)

    But I want to learn coding skills and I know zennoposter or anything cannot be flexible enough like hand coding

    Once you have learned one, any other language will be easy to pick up, since they are all very similar. PHP is the most useful if you are going to be working in internet marketing.

    PHP all the way. I've learned PHP by myself and I can code pretty complex websites by now.
    It's an easy language to learn and it knowing it will allow you to put your ideas to practice with little cost.

    I wouldn't have half of the successful projects I have now if I didn't know how to code, because you simply can't pay several thousand dollars to a programmer every time you have a good idea (unless you are rich), but you can spend a weekend coding it and if it doesn't work.. well, you just wasted some time, not your months pay :)
