    Learn Binary. You'll be able to program for any computer, machine, or electronic device that mankind has ever built. Screw high level code, get down to the 1's and 0's!

      Ah yes but binary is easy, it's just 1s and 0s.

      The challenge is to learn the processor instructions called machine code that are expressed in binary (or more accurately 32 bit or 64 bit binary instructions).

      I did this many years ago as a teenager on the 6502 processor to control stepping motors speed. Coding delays based on the assumption of a 3.3Mhz clock speed. Much fun

    I was researching on the same subject some time ago and i didn't find any "this is the answer" kind-of solution.. every programmer has something different to say on the matter. Some say start with the most basic languages like (nomen-omen) Basic, python. Some say start directly with languages like C++ , you will learn the craft faster.. i mean it depends on what your goal is. Do you want to create websites or pc software. Anyways if you want to become a GOOD programer, and that i know for sure, you should at least learn 1 language out of every group.

    PS
    The guy above is joking obviously ;p You must know what is binary of course but it's ultra hard to program even in assembler, much less.. lol im not even gonna comment that

    it depends on what application do you want to do..

    if you want to do a web-based application there's PHP, ASP, etc..
    or if you want a desktop application there's VB.net, Java, etc..
    or if you want a mobile based application there's Objective C (iOS devices), Android SDK (Android devices, actually this is Java based)

      There is much truth in learning the C programming language. Honestly all languages are based off C or Basic once you know those you can work with them all easily.

      John,

      For general development, C++ is not being widely used much.

      For desktop applications, you will find the vast majority are written in .NET (C# or VB.NET mostly) or Java.

      For web applications, you will mostly find ASP.NET, PHP, Java and Ruby on Rails.

      Most of the C++ now is being used for writing games, device drivers, operating systems, micro-controllers and other "low level" programming.

      For general development, C++ is a language which takes too much time and money to develop a product. By the time the C++ developer is done with his product, the .NET and Java developer are both at the beach enjoying a cool drink. Meanwhile, the C++ developer is looking for an obscure memory leak...

      Plus, the ongoing maintenance cost for C++ applications is simply higher.... even if you have the "best and brightest" as we did at Bell Labs... It is just the nature of C++....

      I have been there, done that..... I actually worked at the company where C++ was "invented".....

      If you are really looking for something that gives you "bare metal" speed and a built in assembler for building Windows desktop applications..... and is very easy to maintain........ I would look no further than PowerBASIC 10.0 Compiler for Windows....

      God Bless,

      Rich

    There is really no one language to be looking at.
    As a programmer you'll definitely need;

    An OO language: C# or Java in that respect.
    A Scripting language: one of the 3 Ps, PHP, Python, Perl
    Web language: HTML5/XHTML and CSS(3), AJAX - Javascript and XML
    Database: SQL for all

    Learning by sections is the right way to go...

    It depends on so many different factors.

    What should be the purpose of the language? web application? desktop app? phone app?
    Have you got any experience in programming?
    How much time are you willing to put in to learn the language?

    I think it would be really confusing to start learning programming from C or C++ without any previous experience (although it's doable).

    This would probably be the fastest way to learn web programming languages on a basic level:

    For web applications you should first understand HTML, CSS (doesn't really take that much time to learn).
    Then you should practice some client side scripting with javascript (not that easy anymore). You don't need to master javascript but learn just enough to understand how it interacts with the browser and try out some excercises.
    Next i would recommend PHP (this is just my preference) for server side scripting. As soon as you understand how php works you should look into Object oriented php. By that time you already have a pretty good idea how things work and you can start to improve your skills step-by-step.

    It seems counterintuitive to learn many programming languages at first but it is the fastest way to understand programming in general. If you've completed the steps above - it really is not that hard to move to a lower level programming language such as C or C++ for a whole different goal. So even if you want to create windows applications i still would recommend starting from web developing since it's a lot easier. This advice is probably not that widely accepted but it is my experience that it makes the learning curve easier.

    I'm sorry for the spelling errors.

      There is no, and never will be a "best" programming language. Each language serves it's own purpose, so you must first choose, what kind of applications you would like to create, and only then you can choose a language.

      If you're interested in web development, stick with the classic LAMP stack: linux, apache, mysql, php. After you learn that, you can continue with ruby, python or whatever you like.

    My vote is for C. It was the about the third language I learned (after BASIC and Pascal) and can still be very useful for cross-platform programming or whipping up something 'quick and dirty'.

    Not to mention that a large part of the PHP syntax is based on C which made PHP programming a walk in the park...

    Ask any programmer worth his salt and he will find it real difficult to answer this question. Expect answers in lines of...this, this, this and this! But in all honesty you need to identify your core requirements and then see which one is applicable. Ask your self do you want to go with server side scripting or are you thinking of doing a lot of desktop applications? Are you interested in building simple html static sites for your customers or do you plan to dive into the big bad world of massive database driven sites. Once you have answers to these kind of questions you will be able to better understand the programming language you must start with (certainly not the only one you will ever need, because trust me they evolve quicker than you and me can think).

    And yes, if you happen to meet a high flying programmer who finds it difficult to give you a satisfying answer, chances are he can't and he is being honest with you.

    I prefer c#, although I haven't looked much at most of the other languages. You can get a free edition of visual c# 2010 express at microsoft.com under visual studio products. There is a professional version too, but it is expensive, and the free version is not very limited. Since it is hosting a programming language, only the unnecessary features of the program are limited, the language itself is the same. Therefore, you can make games straight from the language just as well with the free version, maybe just a little slower because of the additional features in the paid version. On top of that, you can learn the c# language for free online at homeandlearn.co.uk.

    I have been making software for a living for 15 years and Java and PHP seems to be a pretty ok choice. If you know Java, you pretty much can make sense of the other ones also because the basic ways of doing things are built on the same principles in most programming languages. It is just the syntax elements and the details that are different.

    Regarding what is the best programming language...that one is easy: Whatever get's the job done in a way so that the user is happy about the end result.

    Since you'll mostly be tweaking web pages and stuff, I'd say PHP. JAVA is an 800 pound gorilla and it has a steep learning curve. Many people will learn a language and want everyone else to learn it. Go with your goals. Most scripts that you see being sold on warrior forum that run on wordpress and so on are PHP scripts. Desktop apps can be created with visual basic / .NET. I'd stay away from C and C++ because of its complexity.

    90% of every web based script here is going to be in PHP... probably closer to 100%. Stay with what's popular if you want to make scripts and sell them. I know a couple guys that learned php within a month and were selling scripts soon after. You will not be able to do this with java/c++.

    .net is useless. Visual basic is a remake of a very old, obsolete language. Both .net and VB have nothing in terms of cross-compatibility. Java (not javascript) has pretty major limitations and can be tough to learn with no prior code experience. Javascript is also limited, but has been pretty much absorbed into HTML5. Soon there won't be any real distinction between HTML and javascript.

    If you want to build web based stuff, learn HTML5/CSS3 along with PHP/MySQL

    If you want to build desktop software, learn C++ and Python as they are used across many platforms.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[6500196].message }}
  • The programming language itself is not that important, the available tools play a great role, too. I also wouldn't suggest to learn something too low level. For desktop apps I'll throw in Python & PyQT as a cross browser high level alternative. Also Javascript for browser SaaS type apps.

    My first post back here in a long time (health issues kept me away), but I notice nobody's mentioned Ruby on Rails. It may not be as popular a choice as PHP, but it's getting pretty big with a lot of the younger tech startups these days.

    Facebook still uses PHP, with a lot of optimizations (including compiling some of the code to C). Twitter has some Java and Scala on the backend but according to friends I have who work there it's still mostly a Rails app. GitHub (this is the programming forum, so we all know GitHub, right?) is primarily a Rails app, with a bit of Node.js on the backend.

    Ruby (and especially Rails) has a reputation for being slow, but that has changed quite a bit in recent years. There's also JRuby, which gives you access to most of Ruby (including Rails), the entire Java ecosystem and native threading.. not to mention faster performance and a better garbage collector than the original C Ruby implementation.

    Try Rails 3.2.6 on JRuby 1.7.0.preview1, Java 7 JVM and PostgreSQL database. Tell me that isn't fast. It'll also run anywhere Java apps will run (my biggest complaint about Ruby/Rails these days is that your options for hosting are still rather limited.. PHP's biggest advantage in my opinion is that it'll run almost anywhere).

    Thee days I work in C#, SQL, PHP, with a little JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. These pretty much cover 99% of all programming requests I get.

    If you would like to simply create online pages, you should definitely start with these languages, in this order: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
    All three are valuable to know if you want to do anything web related. The argument could be made that HTML and CSS are not actual "programming languages," but despite this, they are crucial to understanding the internet.

    Hi,

    No-one can give you an answer, nor is there a correct answer

    Depending upon what you want it for, the platform on which it's running and many other factors, most languages have advantages over each other.

    I've been coding a very long time, my origin is assembly coder, and now I develop PC software, web and embedded projects - each has very different constraints and needs, so different languages are needed.

    Some embedded work is in assembly, so quite raw coding, but this gives accurate timing and tight execution and minimum code footprint.
    When creating PC software I use c# or VC++, my web work is mostly php and some javascript
    so you can see that varying needs lend better to certain languages

    What I'd suggest is looking towards C or a variant like php or c#, depending upon where you start - you'll find that once you have a feel for 'generic' C, then the rest (C#, c++, php, javascript, java etc etc) falls in place and is in many ways similar.

    I've always enjoyed coding and programming, I guess some hate it..

    Good luck, feel free to ask questions

    First of .. to that guy who said HTML .. HTML is NOT a programming language. Now which one is the best? Well that depends on what kind of program you want to write. You could write a desktop game in PHP but it might be best to use C++ , the language is just a tool. Select the proper tool for the job you want to do.

    Now as a general question .. I say QBASIC is the best! Why. Because programming in QBASIC in the early 90's on my 486 running MS-DOS 3.1 , before I coded for a living, was the most fun I ever had with a computer.

    I suggest you learn Java because it based upon OOP (Object Oriented Programming), is used extensively throughout the industry by a variety of corporations, has a tremendous amount of freeware, is used in a huge variety of different capacities (look at the back of a dvd player and notice the Java logo), and will be around for a long time in the years ahead.

      My sentimental favorite is APL, the first one I learned. It still tickles me to see how much a single line of APL can do.

      I also liked the Turing language, which I learned from a book. It combined some of the best features of Basic and Pascal, but I am not aware if it was ever implemented as a product.

      Nowadays, depending on the project requirements, I mostly use VB.net or VB6.

      PHP is certainly very popular, as it's the language of WordPress and its plugins. Unfortunately, to my eyes, the code appears ugly and difficult to read, especially if I didn't write it.

    try to solve simple input/output problems (here are some samples: Basic programming questions | TechInterviews). Use PHP or Javascript. This is just to test that you are capable of doing programming since it requires your ability to analyze. If you're able to solve them, then, that's good. Then, decide what language you want to use. It doesn't matter what language really because the next step would be easier: getting familiar with the commands' syntax.

    yeah I think that it depends on where you want to program. Web? networks? Software dev?

    Start out learning C, C++
    Then depending on what you want to program for:
    • For web-based application the most popular are PHP, ASP, jQuery, html 5
    • For desktop applications and software most will use VB.net, Java
    • For mobile based application there's Objective C (iOS devices), Android SDK - java based

    just gotta dive in and learn it....

    In my opinion, at the time of this writing, both languages are nearly on an equal footing, although PHP is easier to deploy because there’s no per-compilation required. We will begin to see larger corporations adopting PHP only when Universities begin to include it as a major part of their curriculum, and as the smaller companies that hire graduates fluent in PHP grow into large corporations. In short, it could take many years before we really start to see a PHP presence in larger corporations.

    Asking which is the "best" programming language is a bit like asking "which is the best conversational language in the world"? There is no clear winner, though English comes closest to an international language (not because it's the best, it's more like a convention).

    I've read that python was initially designed to teach kids how to program,
    so you might give that a spin. I've heard Google is using it extensively "in their back store", so that may tell you something.

    But the truth is that you can not shortcut the fact that in order to be moderately fluent in computer-speak, you have to know more than one language. Then, depending on your preferences, you will tend to use one (or a few) for most of your programming tasks. It's a steep learning curve,
    but it's great that you started already, so best of luck !!

    There is 'no' best programming language because choosing a programming language depends upon the user's need. There are several programming languages that fit for several purposes, yet it does not mean that those programming languages are the only ones that can do those things.

    Take for instance, C which is surely a robust programming language, it is such great that C can be used to develop 'C' programming language also!

    C++ : An extension to C, introducing the OOP model of programming. One of the finest programming languages used in developing most antivirus applications.

    Java : Surely a synonym for Internet programming, delivering dynamic web content. It is dead simple. Take for example my iGo4iT Search (search-different.appspot.com) was developed in just a single program!

    .... The list might not have an end, it all depends upon you and your interest and that's it for the end!

    It is hard to choose the best programming language, it depends on different conditions. I think C++ and Java are the best, but it's a matter of opinion.

    I don't think there's a definite answer for this. Since programming languages are used for different things. Like you can't use PHP to set event handlers like JavaScript can. Or you can't use JavaScript code in a Java program.

    The best language in my opinion is PHP, as a language that is.
    If it were to be modified, given GUI capabilities - so you could write client side apps in the language - , added threading, functions renamed to be consistent, a little more object oriented, some optimization and performance boosts, make it compilable... It would be almost perfect.

    I'd really love to be able to write windows apps in PHP.
