Most usefull starting language to learn.

What would be the best starting language to learn.
post #2 of 17
German. I say this because English is very closely related to it.

But only do this if English is your primary language.

I'm a C# fan, but it all depends on what your looking to do with it.

Heh...German...

I'd say start with C# since since it easy to learn and you will very quickly be able to see your program in action when using Visual Studio

Plus, most software tools now days are made in .NET unless they are web based...then I think Java gains the upper hand.

though really it depends on the companies. I spent 2007 to 2010 working for a contract IT company and I got to see a fair amount. .NET using C# was everywhere.

I would recommend starting with HTML and CSS, and then moving to Javascript and PHP.
Web Programming is huge, and its only getting bigger.

OS programming is a little anemic right now, but for a windows environment start with C#.
Its pretty simple to learn, and will give you a decent grasp of syntax.
It also lets you branch off into VB and C++ fairly easily.

I seriously advise you yo avoid java.
Its super useful and versatile, but java programming is also a horribly over-saturated market and the language incredibly bloated.

If you learn something C based (C/C++) at some point, you should be able to easily pick up PHP and Javascript as they both use C syntax. They are pretty much vital for web development.

Or you could always start with web dev first.

PHP with MySQL is a very popular combination. PHP is the server-side language, MySQL is what stores the database.
