Learning a Programming Language.. Where to start?

Q: Learning a Programming Language.. Where to start?

I'm looking to dive into the art of programming but have absolutely no idea where to start. I have been told that C++ is an option but perhaps its a little too advanced for a begginner? My main purpose for learning a programming language is to caclulate scientiffic formulas etc. and maybe even graphing them at some point: whether that be an output file for Excel or an actual drawn image. Can anyone recommend a language, books, and/or where I can get a hold of some cheap software to get me started?

Thanks for your input!

Preferred Solution: Learning a Programming Language.. Where to start?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i started to learn programming in 1997 and after 2 years i stopped. so the last time i have done any coding is in 1999. i remember that it was difficult. i couldn't grasp the maths. i mainly coded in C and C++ and only a very small amount in Visual Basic. i have been wanting to get back into programming but i don't know which language to choose. apart from those the only others i know of are JavaScript, Pearl and QBasic. ultimately i want to know all programming languages.
what i am getting at is which language should i start with? which one is the simplest that can teach me the fundamentals and basics?

I am considering getting a Lumia 640 as my first smart phone. One of my hobbies is learning a foreign language and the iPad is really helpful for this. It has been often said that Microsoft cannot offer anything like the apps needed to attract mobile customers. That looks to be true and my occasional use of a netbook running Windows 8.1 has disappointed in relation to apps available. Memrise and Duolingo are two apps that I recently discovered on my iPad and they are very good. The former isn?t available for Windows phone. Duolingo is awful on a computer because of problems with sound recording and speech recognition. It works after a fashion with the Chrome browser but the iPad is streets ahead of my laptop.

Has anybody experience of using language apps and feel able to make suggestions? At present a Windows 10 phone is looking much less suitable for me than an iPhone or Android device.

A:Windows phones and language learning

Language apps are not really used on phones. Less than one percent of people use that function. would advise that you check youtube for assistance.

I'm trying to learn Assembly language but all the tutorials that I've read on the Internet are so confusing. They just go on and on about registers and bytes and don't tell me how to use them in a real debugger. I want to actually learn what they do in real life as I'm learning. Do you guys know any tutorials that are good and easy to understand? I know how to program in C++, Java, and Basic but I don't think that will help me with learning Assembly.

A:Help me find a good tutorial for learning Assembly Language

Uhm.. If you don't know what registers and bytes are, then assemply is plain useless. You might as well say "I want to learn C++, but I don't want to know about variables or classes".

Also, in 99.9% of the cases you don't need to go to the assembler level in debugging. Modern debuggers are advanced enough to let you step through source code and examine variables at the same time.

You need assembler skills if you are debugging routines with no source available or if you suspect compiler errors.

hi guys! can you recommend me some good programming language for beginners just like me? my friend in school recommends Turbo this a suitable language for beginners to learn?

any help would be greatly appreciated..thanks guys...

A:Programming Language

I would suggest firstly is to make decision - what do you want to program, or write code for..? Cause different languages are good for different purposes, for example if you to write for mobile programming then Java would be used... and so on... All C languages are good as well as Java, the principles are mostly the same, the sintaxis are different.
It's difficult to suggest which is the best car..? Since it depends what are you going to use it for..? Same here, do not rush, think what you want to do and then go for it, all languages have tutorials, dedicated to language websites, forums, books and so on. If you love maths and you know it good programing is for you, not much of help though... but...
Good luck!

I have a 15 yo son who wants to learn how to program. He has played with Delphi and lot of the on line games. Unfortunately my experience goes back to the heady days of Pascal , basic and assembler so I can not give him sound advice.

I notice here the two most common "starters" are VB and C++. Are these two good to learn on or should I guide him to another language if these are to hard.

Appreciate the help


A:Programming Language for a 15 yo Son

Leopard is a good place to start. It is a relatively easy language to learn and he can produce his own exe's. It may be too basic for him, but you can take a look at it. And the price is right.

Philosophies vary on whether it is a good idea to learn a language that may be very different from what a full-fledged and more commonly used language is, but the principles of programming are very much the same. My own experience seems to be that learning a language like BASIC09, even though greatly different from later C++, actually informed it and allowed for greater flexibility with the new language.

what to go into programming which is the best language?

Relevancy 65.36%

I would like to join the up and coming programing revolution - but don't know what programming learn for the future (which would be the easiest and best language to learn ).



A:Which Programming language is best

It all depends on what the application is. In the earlier days and to some extent today - COBOL is for business applications, Fortran is for scientific programming - that's the legacy.

Start with C. Learn an assembler language - Intel would be best. While your at it learn to drive a symbolic debugger for C which can look at assembled instructions, set breakpoints, watch points, change memory, and step through source code statements until the program blows up at the problem in your program - and you can inspect the flow of data in the program to find out how it caused the problem.

As a part of learning C, learn data structures - which is fundamental to programming in any language. Learn about arrays, linked lists, trees and other advanced data structures like cactii and BTrees.

Learn advanced topics like threads and how to synchronize independent data events for parallel programming - that will be the future - check out Intel's Nehalem processor due to debut in late 2008 at Ars Technica web site.

The learn about inheritance, polymorphism, and abstraction with private and public classes of instances of objects in C++.

For Artificial Intelligence learn Lisp, or Scheme.

For Logic Programming learn Prolog.

You can learn Java, but it is best applied at the mobile device level - although some corps. use it for applications on the Web which is somewhat top heavy from reports.

If you want to do systems software engineering, learn more about hardware, and study Computer Language Theory, and Operating Systems like Unix/Linux Internals.

Search the Software Development forum for posts initiated by my member name, lotuseclat79, and the keyword Memory - I recently posted links to a series of excellent articles on the topic of what every programmer should know about memory written and posted on another website.

A:Programming Language

You can make games in anything. It just depends on your skills and devotion.

If you want to make a game worth anything you should choose the language you are the most comfortable with. And also try to get a hold of some realism when judging your skills

You don't even have to use a programming language to make a (not so impressive) game.
Have you heard of tools like "Games Factory", "PIE 3D", Milkshape 3D?

Hi all,
I am taking college classes, and my first programming experience of any kind was last semester, with an intro to programming class. This semester I am taking the first part of a two-semester class in Java. I am finding it pretty difficult. I am wondering if it is just me, or is picking Java (out of any other language) sort of hard to learn for a first-time programmer/total beginner? Was there an easier one I could start with? I want to go for a BA or MA in Computer Science, and one of the requirements to get into either program is two semesters of java. In addition to reading Java Programming by Joyce Farrell for class, I bought Java For Dummies as sort of a preparatory book. Would anyone recommend any other Java books that they've read?

A:First programming language - Java


Welcome to TSG. Java is hard, right, but that is just at the beginning. After that if you pay enough time, effort and attention, it will not. For an example, when I was writing my first hello world program(one year before), I told my lecturer I am not gonna MAKE IT. I told him I am not gonna make a single WORKING program in my whole life time. But that was the beginning. Now I am on my way to make a program which will work based on the user's voice. See, that is now. At the beginning anything is hard, even the world's most easiest thing. But, when you do it with courage and attention, it will become a hobby and of course easy.

And there is another thing I learn t from my self based experience. That is, do not limit your self to the text book. Learn by searching by your self. Always try to become a challenge to other people by trying to get more knowledge than them (yes, education is a competition). And to be honest, I made contacts with lot of Java programmers in all around the world, and that is the golden knowledge base of mine(One of my friends in TSG was my first Java helper) . Their knowledge always helped me whenever I am stuck. You also do it by sticking up with TSG and other technical forums.

Love your failures, they will tell you where you will get wrong. Never get disappointing by saying that is hard. Whenever you find something new, and if you can try it out, do it. Do not wait until your lecturer asks you to do it.

Help your friends to learn Java. Their mistakes will show you unbelievable nice points! Correct their code for them. Do not wait until they ask for help, just jump and help .

In programming, it is pretty much normal to forget something you have learnt. Who cares, just go through the books and refresh your knowledge rather than worrying about your memory loss. People forget, that is why the books are written.

Create programs by your self. Do not wait until your lecturer ask you to do, because they may never ask! Don't think your homework as a homework. Do it for your knowledge, not because the pressure given to you, do it for your own knowledge.

If you are interesting in Java books, I recommend "Head First Java" book. Buy the latest version of the book (The latest was 2nd edition which covered Java5. Now Java 7 is up, they might have updated the book too. But it doesn't matter, the basics has never changed, and will never change!!). I recommend it because it is written by Kathey Sierra, the Java promoter and Java game developer, who is working for Sun Java Corporation (Now Oracle) and Bert Bates. And it is a production of O'Rielly, who did a good job for Web 2.0.

The other best resource is internet. In most cases I refer, because they have very good and understandable Java examples. Apart from that, use google

Why Parrot is Important.

Think writing a compiler is difficult? It is—unless you use Parrot, a complete compiler construction kit. With Parrot, crafting a new programming language is as easy as authoring a new website.

Quote Reference: Why Parrot is Important (Linux Magazine)
"Good tools lower the risk of trying out new ideas. Spending 10 years implementing a radical new concept in programming languages, alien to users of existing languages, is a daunting prospect. Spending a few weeks, on the other hand, is quite tolerable. Successful experiments can quickly go on to solve more problems, while the unsuccessful ones can be quickly set aside, applying the lessons learned to the next language."Click to expand...

I have an idea for some interactive "flashcards", an educational program, where you test/educate yourself for vocabulary words.

My question is "What computer language should I try to develop this in?"

I visualize that the program would just be text display text, but it would be nice to display some graphics.

About 30 yrs. ago I did some programming in Basic & Fortran. You can get Basic, Python, or Scratch on-line for no charge. The learning curve would also be less in those languages.

If some publisher would be interested in the idea, would he want it programmed in Java, C++, or Visual Basic? or would Basic, Python, or Scratch be good enough?

I am retired, have a lot of time, but few financial resources, and this project is a labor of love rather than a professional move.

Any advice will be appreciated,
Thank you

A:Programming "Flashcards", in what computer language?

Microsoft gives several compilers for free, in my opinion, since you know BASIC, then develop the application with Visual BASIC. Personally, I prefer the C languages, such as C++ and C#, since I find the syntax quicker to write than BASIC.

Python and Java are based around C and C++ too.

Personally, from developer forums and Q/A, I've seen most people develop in C# or C++.

I don't want to have to buy any books, etc., I'm just looking for tutorials, guides, etc. I already downloaded the Apple Developer Connection reference library, but there's just too much stuff in there unless you know what you're looking for. Any help would be appreciated!

By the way, I have OS 10.5.1 and have XCode already installed.

hey all, i've been wanting to program for Windows for quite a while now, but just haven't got around to it.

i have some experience with VB6, but that was 7 years ago, and i haven't been into the scene since then.

what's the best thing to get into now? be great if there was a development system like visual studio that was free. what's the best market to develop for? what's the up and coming thing i could try?

i've set aside a month so i know i can do this.

A:How can I start building a programming portfolio?

I'm a university student who's just finished my first year, so I'm constantly given all the same advice as you are and don't really know how much is accurate and how much is nice-sounding theory.

That said, it sounds to me as if the task is twofold.
You have to prove to employers that you have the skills they want, and you have to make sure you have the skills they want.

The first thing to check is what languages they actually do want, which isn't always C# or Java.

Insofar as FoxPro is like the languages they want you to work in, it shouldn't be hard to transfer those underlying skills to another language even if the actual letters used to make a statement are different. However, if the language you're after has an inherently different way of doing things, you'll need to learn that way of doing things.
Either way you'll need to practice the new language: find code samples and trace through them line by line to work out what's happening, find online programming puzzles (things like this and this) and practice them in different languages, look for fora like this one (though to be honest the programming forum here isn't all that busy) and find the bugs in people's buggy code, and ultimately write programs in them. I put some of my projects up on my website. They're neither unique nor the best in their field, but they serve for practice. Generally speaking each is focussed on an area I knew I was weak on at the time, and an opportunity presented itself to get better, and I thought the project itself sounded fun.
I also occasionally hunt for jobs on freelancing sites for a bit of extra practice (and a bit of extra cash can help too of course), since it forces me to work to someone else's specification and take on things I wouldn't normally attempt. I don't know how that would work with unemployment benefit; I don't think applying to freelance jobs counts toward your 2 applications a week.

Perhaps most importantly, stress your advantages. Instead of "I only know this obscure old language," you have proven that you can hold down a job for a year and a half (which the fresh graduates you're competing with haven't), which means you have shown you can do real world programming instead of homework problems, you have the initiative to go out and learn a different style, and special experience in whatever FoxPro is best at doing (databases?) that no-one else has precisely because it's so obscure.

This may be a bit of a silly question, and for that I apologize, but I was wondering how you change the language in the start up? Like when the computer is shutting down/turning on, when you wake it up from sleep and enter a PIN, etc.

When I was picking the language in the initial start up, I accidentally chose French because the touchpad was really grippy. I've changed the language back to English for when I'm actually using the computer, but the start up and lock screens are still in French.

I apologize if I'm not posting this in the right place. Any help would be great!

Go to Settings -> Time & language -> Region & Language and then change to the language that you want.

I have just bought a new laptop which came loaded with Windows 8........ (loving it so far) except I am living in Dubai & am British. On the initial set up I was unable to change the language from Arabic to English but thought I would be able to do this once I had completed the initial setup as was the case

However some of the boxes in the start screen are still written in Arabic & I have tried everything I can think of to change these to English.

When I went into some of the boxes to see what they were, the title of the box automatically changed to English but not all of them

Anyone got any ideas on how to change the titles of these boxes???

Well, I have Windows 7 Ultimate, 32-bit. Here's the problem. As I speak and read various languages, most fluently Chinese, English, Swedish; I messed with the new language changing feature in Ultimate. I changed from Chinese to English, everything went perfectly smooth, it was all translated except for one thing. The start screen where you log in. The bar under your profile picture which should say password in English says
"密码" in simplified Chinese. Then when I do enter the password, the "logging in" is also in simplified Chinese. Also, some things in some programs, such as IE 7 and the current typing language on the lower right corner is in a weird font. It's still in that Chinese looking english font. Very weird.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello everyone.
Today I tried Windows 10... it's not bad at all but for the moment I prefer to stick with Windows 7.
So I downgraded and everything is fine a part from a small detail in the start menu...

As you can see my Windows 7 is in Italian but there are three entries that are in English.
Documents-Pictures-Music instead of Documenti-Immagini-Musica.
All the settings in control panel are on "Italian" so I don't know why this happened.

Any way to fix it?

I installed Windows 8 Pro and installed an additional language(let's say it's B) pack, changed system display language to B, and system locale to B.

And I got infinite BSOD after installing some drivers(not related to language pack, just I made mistake installing old programs), so I 'refresh'ed the system.

Guess what, after the refresh, system display was set to English(united kingdom, which is default), AND system locale remained as language B.

This is the problematic part;
1.I CANNOT change system display language to B, it says it's unavailable.
2.The system regards the language pack is already installed because I can still use B as system locale.
3.I cannot reinstall or remove the language pack. LPKSETUP doesn't detect B.

SO i'm pretty much stuck, and I don't want to reinstall just to change the system display language.

Is there any solution to this(removing/reinstalling language pack)?

A:Program files folder is in different language than display language

It seems to me that it would have to stay English (or the language the coders named it) as the programs look to those folders and their exact names/wording for files to use. If someone made for example call of duty then translated duty to Greek and the code looked for duty, it would only find the translation and it would fail to find the thing its looking for.

I have no info to back this up but its my theory as why things like documents can change but not program files folder names.
