Easy to learn, but useful language? - Page 2

post #11 of 33
C++ or C#. Don't ask which one is better, they are same. People love to fight about them which one can do more, they can do the same.

Python is used a lot too--I've wanted to pick it up for a while (I'm not a software engineer, I have no language experience, and in my area, it's used pretty frequently).

What do you hope to accomplish with this new language?

Meh, C++ is a bit more pro, C# is a bit easier (better structured?) IMO. But you're right, the result is up to the programmer, not so much the language

I'm not really sure about what I'd like to accomplish beyond learning a language, but I recon if I knew how I'd find something to code, lol! So it seems C# got the most votes, I think I'll check it out, hopefully I won't find it too difficult!

I think Python is the most user friendliest language, but it's usefulness.. it's pretty useful but not as prevalent as any of the C language or Java in most applications.

Absolutely agreed--C and java are way more common.

I think python is used a lot around me because it also functions easily as a hardware control interface, as well as software-building. But not really common all over the place.

C# fits perfect for a beginner. Once you learned C# its easy to move to one or all other C derivats.

Thanks guys, I'll grab Visual Studio, and then find a tutorial. I have Viual Studio 2008 Express edition on a DVD Cover disk from a PC Format, is that ok or should I get the new 2010 one from Microsoft??

Another Saffer? We're popping up all over lately

VS2008 Express will do you just fine, VS2010 will be a bit nicer gui / layout wise.

You can start with any langauge really, tho I'd stay far away from php, but personally I'd recommend c++, purely because you'll have a better understanding of how things work and you'll be able to see how c# does a lot of things it does for you.

That being said, c# will be easier to learn, VS has better intellisense for it and if you are interested in a career in programming, I can tell you there are far more oppertunities in South Africa for a c# programmer - there are c++ positions (usually senior), and they generally pay really well, but can be hard to come by.

Yep, us SA people are infiltrating everything, pretty soon we'll take over, lol! I'm not really interested in programming for a career, I'm busy with A+, N+ and MCITP: Enterprise Admin at the moment. I just want to try it out, and who knows if I like then I've found something else cool to do with my PC, lol!

I'll install the 2008 off the cover disk, because the downloads are big and MWEB uncapped DSL is not the best around!!
