I got a few interesting questions on my post from the day before yesterday, so I’ll be answering them for you now.

“I’m interesting in learing about programming too but not sure of what language to go with”
-Stuart

Well, that pretty much depends on what you want to do with your programming. Use it in web pages? Go with JavaScript, then some PHP for the more complicated server-side stuff (after mastering HTML and CSS of course). Want to make games or other offline applications? Try a C or Java. Maybe Perl. If you’re not sure wether you want it in a browser or not, Java is the safest option. Not only does it make the transition to JavaScript a bit easier, but you can also embed Java apps into a web page with a few modifications!

“I wish i could program, honestly. I mean, you never know when you might have an idea, like minecraft or something, that you just can’t get to life. Is it hard to learn java?”
-Rauwz

Again, that depends on some factors. Are you good with code? Have you ever programmed anything before?
Once you’ve learned one language (say, Perl) you’ll find learning other languages a lot easier. You already know how everything works, now you just need to learn to say it another way.
If you have a terrible memory, well, that doesn’t help much. You can opt for looking everything up, but that’ll take a lot of time. Memorizing different statements, functions, etc. is pretty important. It isn’t all that hard, though. it’s just like learning French.

Hope you all learned something. If any more questions arise, don’t be shy, just ask!

    Though I can’t come up with a question myself, I’d like to see more question answering post!

    How well do you have to know html and css before you can consider yourself a master in either?

    I always used to get java updates on my laptop. Never new what it was until a couple weeks ago to be honest

    I’ve never programmed anything before. Back when I was in college doing IT, we did some flash animations, but I didn’t stick around long enough to do programming -_-. Although when I was back in school we did do basic programs in Visual Basic, such as number generators. I don’t remember how to make them anymore though lol. Programming does remain one of those things I want to learn, but right now I just don’t have the determination to go through with it. It can take a lot of time and effort.
