    Smile Programming? Where first?

    There are so many programming languages and scripting languages, I'm not sure what to do.

    At the moment I am trying to learn a lot of Java and hopefully be considered an advanced programmer because that seems fun but there are so many other things that seem important as well.

    What about C? C++? Javascript and PHP? What are your experiences. Do you just learn new languages as you go along or try reading different books about each language and become alright in each. It just seems like there isn't much time for me before I am overflowed in school tests and I'm not sure exactly what to do with it?

    Any comment is appreciated.

    I started out with C++ as the others said C++ is the stepping stone to the next language. after i have learned the basics in programming like the loop, if else, switch, array, etc.. i can easily learn new languages.

    It really depends on what your goal is. Java is probably more of a "beginner" language than C or C++, simply because it is a "higher" level language, although all three are considered high level languages C and C++ have low level features, but if you have prior experience in languages you might find starting out with C or C++ is a good idea. However, if your goal is write webpages it probably isn't a good idea to learn them in that case ( C++, C that is ).

    Like I said, it depends on your ultimate goal. If it is just the challenge of learning a language then the choice is arbitrary and you might as well choose the one with the biggest community/userbase (?).
