Hi, I have just learned how to progam in Visual Basic (Yeah, I know...), and I was wondering how I could learn Python or basic..... Any help Appreciated!
+ rep for a good answer
You're completely missing my point. I'm not saying he shouldn't learn other languages (after all, I can code in around a dozen different languages myself). I'm simply stating that Python isn't a step up from VB. In fact, in many ways, Python is a step backwards as it's slower, and even less strict. So he'd be better off learning C# or Java and learning more complex techniques. Thus pushing himself forward as a developer and learning more employable skills.Originally Posted by alcal
Edit2: There's nothing wrong with learning more languages. Programming (ironically) isn't about the language and once you have learned one or two languages, the next becomes much easier to pick up. Odds are, if you ever get a programming job, you will be programming in a new language there too. Also, if you ever need a personal script to solve some sort of cute little problem, Python is a marvel.
