Hey there ~~~~, welcome to Geeks To Go Forums.

In my oppinion its best you get into VB from there into C++. VB is a simple programming language but is also very involved. C++ is tough if you dont have a programming basis.

HTML and Java are also great languages to go out and learn. I have done Vb.net but I am more comfortable with VB6. I'd have to say thats the best bet, VB.

I only say this beacuse I have been using VB for many years and I am comfortable with it, you must get a language you will be comfortable with doing. Many other peoples oppinion will probably be diffrent.

For some cool tips and tutorials check this: (Its got alot of diffrent languages also)

Cool, let me know in future what you aventually got into. :whistling:

The above that spike_hacker_inc mentioned are very good. If you want to start with something VERY simple, yet useful, I would reccomend QBasic as a building block to VisualBasic, C++, etc.

I think everyone should begin with java. I don't believe VB gives you very good grounding for the later programming languages. Java, C and C++ are a good way to progress through the languages. Java is reasonably easy and will give you a good starting point from which to deepen your understanding and improve your skills.

I'm personally inclined to agree w/ spike hacker inc there. Though both arguments have their merit.

starting with vb6 would give an easy start to the basic concepts loops, if statements, and also start a user out with easy to make GUI's :whistling:.
Alternatively it does get you stuck loving the ease and functionality of the vb6 compiler which in the end is quite crippling when you want to progress into a fully developed language. Despite that, IMO VB6 is still a good start to pick up the basics.

Java and C are very mindmashing especially when you are starting with programming. VB is the best choice, since it is easy to learn and you can concentrate on what makes programming programming: creating the solution to a problem.

Python is good too, though is bit tougher than VB, but you can get everything for it for free. VB is a microsoft product and you will have to pay for it.
