very nicely done l@d.Originally posted by lightatdawn
Personally I went the Basic->Pascal->C++ way and rather enjoyed it. It nice having those joyous discoveries of each new language as they get progressivly better.
Oh look: I can print my name on the screen! Plus, I can even ask you to enter your name!
Oh, look: I can format my code and the evil automatic syntax checker is GONE! Plus, as this isnt a scripting language, my code runs faster than Bill Gates would after a lobotomy.
Oh look: Power, OO, versatility. Plus, there is no such command as "uses".
I had done logo and gwbasic before but i never really studied them since they were just extra/added classes in school and there marks/grades were not included in the exam results. so i barely managed to pass the exams.
So I can say that my first real programing lang was c++ and from that experience, i can say people can continue on with that.
Theres absolutely no need to directly rush into OOPS concepts. You can start with simple programs and then go forward to the real thing.
