I Personally suggest to learn C and C++ because these two language is good for beginner and clear your every concept that would be used in other language. You can earn money by only creating modules in C language.
I like Scheme. It's a small language that allows one to quickly apply pretty profound ideas (such as procedures as data and vice versa). The greatest computer science book, scratch that, the greatest book I have ever read is the Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, which teaches how to program (using Scheme as its toolbox). Not only is this an incredible book; it's also 100% free from MIT Press' website.
Might you want to consider a fairly purist language? Especially if you're interested in math, you'll probably find a new functional hybrid such as ML or Haskell helpful. You might also try OCaml or something of that nature, but for my advice you should probably look at SML and Haskell, as they are used in lots of very nice projects (LCF, HOL, Isabelle, and ideas borrowed in Coq, etc...).
darn der goes that plan i guess its back to the studying:)
Sorry LorraineBR, you know how I feel about linear algebra. The last person I did that for is still looking for me and not to thank me.
hey bobbym...u like pointers...hmmm.howd u feel like a trip to dublin on monday u can do my comp sci exam...and while ur here u cud do my calculus and linear algebra 1s to...wat u say ?????
I would say... German or spanish
ive bn learnin c++ 4 de last 2 years (and have an exam in it in 2 days so prob shud get off the internet) but i found that while c++ does teach u alot and stuff it can b over complicated in some parts specially wen it comes to pointers and in those cases java can be better. i also find microsoft visual studios good because their compiler is built in and it is very user friendly specially if your doing more than one file projects
I use Python as well. I find it simple to use, and a good starting block for beginning programmers like me. Also, it doesn't need too much disk space to run.
Although I used to be a big advocate of C++ and lisp, python, I am afraid, is the wave of the future.
Hi, what about apple script, and codeing c on the Mac? I'm just learning...
