What is your opinion on this? What langauge should I learn first?
Im not sure I want to program for a career. I just want something I can do on my free time(To at least pay the $50 month internet bill ) I am still attending High School so I want to make some extra $$ from home. Anything! Either it be something with the internet or whatever. Oh yeah and it would be nice if I could average at least $110 a month
Thank you so much!
This is what some other guy from another forum told me:
I believe that visual basic is the beginning to what you'll need to know. Wiff that you can create your own media player other windows app and it is very easy to understand, second vb also will teach you the easy steps of c+,C++ that is where you will want to start.
I took computer science years ago and, basic,vbasic,dbase was the programing languages we started with at that time. These are the essential languages to learn.
Could you give me a link to somewhere that gives me more info about these langauges?
And could you tell me how I could make money with some langauges from home?
as described whiff this you can build web applications for instance namespace, facebook
windows applications like widgets, media applications like nero its what you learn and how much you put into it is what you gain, you need a good plan to make money. A game for example has many tech's working graphic artist, sound artist, and a couple of programmers the programmers take that information and develop a engine usually using c and vb. VB will teach you how to create a install package and all the above. Your are starting with the right questions so hit the books go to school home if needed and away you go.
Example of a good game egine is the ut, developed by c++ and vb
What is your opinion on what he said?
I know this post is getting long but another guy told me:
it's the simplest one, you can create small programs and useful algorithms. You'll learn definitions, techniques and the "programmer's way of think". Then you should try **delphi**(object pascal), 'cause in pascal you'll only create ms-dos programs, in delphi you'll create win-32 programs. Lots and lots of people say that delphi isn't a good programming language, that you should go to another languages like c++ and java. Well, it's good to go to another languages but delphi is a good one. Remember: the programming language is as good as the programmer works with it.
Thanks for putting up with me! (And yes i am new to all this)
