Re: Which programming language to start with?

Visual Basic is horrible. I have to do quite a bit of VB coding for work. I'd rather hammer nails through my feet.

Pretty much anything else would be a better choice.

Re: Which programming language to start with?

Hi - just offering the humble opinion of a computer science student in second year. After learning python and visual basic last year and presently in the paddling pool with Java, I wholeheartedly recommend starting with python. It provides a user friendly introduction to the fundamental principles of programming. Go for it!

And I concur with Robert Maxwell's sentiments re: Visual Basic. God awful.
