Well i'm trying to learn a programing language, and I was wondering which one I should try first,somthing for a person that never used a program language before and is only ok at math?

#include(iostream)

using namespace std;

int (main);

{
cout<< "I recommend C++ :D/n"

return 0;
}

C++ is by far NOT a language for a beginner programmer. >_>

I'm not even sure I did that right, but pretty close nevertheless.

C++ was my first(and only) programming language. I took a DigiPen (video game making) class at the Tri Tech skills center in Kennewick and that is what we used.

I'll guess i'll try visual basic, look for some books at the local bookstore.

EDIT: I'm now installing Microsoft Visual Basic Express 2010

I'll probably try out some of these when I get time, the only thing I can do is HTML :lol:

In high school and college the first programming languages they taught us were Visual Basic before moving on to Java then C++.  VB is the best to start with for basic concepts.  With regards to Digipen - they use top notch stuff for their classes.  That being said it's still not the best thing to use for new programmers.

Well, without having being exposed to the other languages (in depth) I kinda sorta get C++. I mean I can pick out and identify certain parts and how they make the program work.

I can also make one that makes your computer beep. :troll:

You really don't need any knowledge to get started programming with C or C++ :)

VB doesn't give you an head start in programming, it's just typical shit developed by Micro$oft :)

Which encompasses a lot of general programming concepts that are used by the majority of programming languages....furthermore it has more of a visual design interface to it which helps a lot for new programmers.

Graphical environments get in the way for a beginning programmer, as drag and dropping make variables, loops, etc a secondary concept, which the for a progammer should be a primary concern imo. I'm going off experience and other programmers' knowledge. When I started programming I started with VB, it was a waste of time :( I find it better using a low-level text editor.

I started my programming in grade 11 with Object Oriented Turing, a purely text based programming language. I personally found it a pain in the ass to have no graphical interface and navigating thousands of lines of code in programs I wrote. I guess we will just have differing opinions/preferences on this then.  I started VB in college and I found it prepared me pretty good for Java and beyond.  I must have learned it differently then you.

Yes, it's person preference :) and btw, you were able to take programming in High School? Wow, my HS didn't have any classes :x

At least you didn't have to purchase the software on a floppy disk for $80 lol

Java is what I use and have always used, I have never liked C, mostly because I started with Java and got the basics and knowledge from there. It's not that hard to learn and it's object oriented. In either ways, I hate anything that has to do with programming, even if I'm in the IT field  :P

Game map making tools are like that. The SDK project is a series of HL2 mods with just the mapping tools.

What does mapping have to do with this? O_o

It's a gui that allows you to build a level. You can expand on the basic triggers like "Button X to open door Y" to more and more elaborate stuff, within a certain limit.
