What coding language should I learn? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
How does Ruby measure up to these other coding languages? C++ is the one I hear about most.

I ran across this link today. I personally feel the coldfusion part is not entirely accurate, but it may be.

It might not be the best tool for what you want to do, but I'd recommend Visual Basic. I'm being taught this at the moment and it seems ok for an introduction into programming. At the moment, the best I can do is program a calculator or database viewer plug-in. I think it's a good one to cut your teeth on first, especially if you've never done any programming before.

Well 1 deciding factor between VB and C++ is that VB is Windows specific...where as C++ is transportable to different platforms...If your gonna be working in JUST a windows environment then VB is so much easier than C++ BUT as I said it won't compile on a linux box...only windows...hope this helps...TY

I'm learning Java now, it's quite an interesting language to learn.

If you are planning on doing some interactive stuff an object oriented language like python might be useful--there are a ton of resources out there and lots of source code to mess with--it's easy (must be--I grokked it and all I really know is Fortran and BASIC)

C++ or Java. You learn one well and the basics of programming and you will be set. Learn C++ or Java, pick up a book later and you will have no problems w/ other languages as long as you grasp the basics. Just don't learn any form of VB first or you will get a rude awakening when you need to program in C++ or Java. VB is simple to pick up after you learn a harder langauge, but gives false feelings of programming if learned first. I learned VB .net first then later learned C++, I went in thinking I could pick up C++ easy and it felt like a rock got launched into my head as soon as I got to coding.

Pascal/Delphi is a great language to start coding in, although its not the best language for game coding once youve learnt one language the others generally come very quickly. Like i said its easy to learn and once youve mastered the logic of programming you just need to learn the syntax in other languages. But C is the best language for non web based games IMO and Java the best for web bases games as already stated.
