I wish to learn computer programming. At this moment in time I am learning the variation called "Visual Basic". Does anyone know of any good rescources for this programming, for a complete novice? also, what other computer languages are relatively easy to learn and good for a beginner?
thanks in advance.

Hmm, I was taught Pascal as a beginner. Now I have to learn Java but I hear the logic behind them is similar.
|16:20:43 Oct 21st 08 - Lord Wolven Warrior:|
Yeah I've found one for Visual Basic; I am interested to hear others opinions and any other good computer languages to learn later on also though =)

its the easiest to learn, and the most powerful.

C++. Visual Basic is becoming obsolete, don't try too hard.

Visual Basic sux as hell. C++ is best for programming, but it's damn hard.

indeed, C++ is really what you want to work for, though you may need to do other stuff to work your way up to it, if you're a complete novice than vb is good to fool around with.

C++ is where u want to end up, but it will be hard for a 100% novice.
Visual basic is the one I'm being taught its a good start i suppose, but yes its becoming obsolete. However once you've learn 1 computing language its alot easier to pick up others.
Schools don't just teach pascal, all schools get to chose what they teach, I'm led to believe vb is more simular to C++ aswell.

I started out with java, and as someone said, if you learn to program in any language, you'll master another one within notime. As the way of thinking is whats hard in the beginning.

c++/java/c# are what you're looking for.

Java = newest programming and you would wanna learn this because java is poping up everywhere now :P im currently a 2nd year student in my high school for this type of programming :P its fun but you have to stay within the rules :P ... if you know math, its kinda like that. Youre allowed to do somethings while you cant do others :P (as far as i know atleast :P) and how you do it is just as important :P if that makes sense :P lol

Bah, you guys are all spoiled. Machine code is the way to go! :P
|23:22:43 Oct 21st 08 - Mr. Reddragon:|
lol machine code is hard to learn, because you need to see it in your mind (it sounds like matrix).

I'm a Computer Science major, and I'm currently studying Resolve (which is a language made by my university as a computer-science-theory language, but for the most parts has the same syntax, commands, and logic as C++.)
|04:25:47 Oct 22nd 08 - Mr. Randahhhhh:|
C++ is probably most practical to know, along with java, i am computer/electrical engineering double major and i feel that these two will have most use in current/future work.
|05:04:14 Oct 22nd 08 - Mr. Utkarsh Bhardwaj:|
Well C++ is where everyone wants to get to eventually, but they must realize that it is a very hard language to learn. And for a novice like u, I would really recommend that you start up with this program called : "NetBeans"...It is free to download from www.netbeans.org. It is a great program for beginners. So i would really recommend that you give it a try. If you need any help with this program, feel free to contact me, I will be more than happy to help.

ok, thanks for your advice everyone =)
|15:01:36 Oct 22nd 08 - Mr. Avionaro:|
machine code isn't that hard to learn, but you have to program a lot when you want something done. Like one line of C++ code you need like 100 lines of machine code to do the same.
|15:05:36 Oct 22nd 08 - Mr. Chrome:|
You should start with assembly and learn how the memory works etc. Then when you want to do more advanced stuff then adding 1+1 together you should switch to C++
|15:16:22 Oct 22nd 08 - Sir Frederick:|
You would want to start with Java. Its a very much used programming language. Dont go for C++, its not a really productive language, especially not for starters and its simply hard.
|14:14:40 Oct 23rd 08 - Mr. Brain:|
Java is relatively easy, not the easiest, but I'd daresay one of the best to begin with.
|07:28:27 Oct 28th 08 - Mr. Millenium:|
im taking computer programing in highschool, and im doing java, the one where you start off doing "hello world"?
|12:56:42 Oct 29th 08 - Mr. Hilario:|
im a graduate of computer science degree... if you want to program something...
