Best programing language to learn for a not quite beginner?

April 1, 2011 – 12:28 am

Well I’m looking for what would be a good second programming language to learn ? I had to take qbasic programming at my high school before being allowed to take c++ or visual basic but unfortunately that was last semester and I got stuck in web design the second… Html, CSS, and Dreamweaver are boring the hell out of me so I thought I might as well get a heard start for next year. But after some googling… I don’t know what I want to get into. C#, Ruby, Perl, Delphi, Javascript? So any advice and maybe background info would be appreciated.

  2. I’d say wait for your semester of taking C++. I’m in college and have currently taken two programming classes, with the base language being C++. Many languages such as Javascript and C# are based off of the C language. I haven’t studied that many languages, but I’m positive there are many more. In my intro class, we used C++ for that purpose, and because it’s a good language to help understand computer logic. However, since you took HTML, you might want to look into Javascript because it can be used to add user interface with your webpages. I’d say do a little research in both C++ and Javascript.

  4. It really depends on what you want to do with it. Perl, Delphi, Ruby for very basic scripts and small applications. You should trying looking into each one some more in depth.

  5. a good starter language is python, it is very simple and yet pretty powerful. But if you want to learn a language that will basically make every other language easy its C++, but if you find that intimidating i suggest learning java, with OOP on java aswell as C++ you kinda need the OOP feel before you hit straight into C++.
