    My first language was 'English', but I never mastered it.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    I began programming with QBASIC as most people do. I quickly became bored and moved on to COBOL, which I consider the first language I really learned.

    I started with PASCAL.

    I would definitely suggest starting with PASCAL because it is easy enough to learn with limited amounts of time yet complex enough to do some more involved stuff...

    Well, when I was born, I could make only a few coos and a lot of crying, but as I grew up, I learned how to say primitives such as "Mommy" and "Daddy" and "Poopoo". A little bit later I learned how to say "Mommy, Daddy, I made a poopoo." and it escalated from there. Currently, though, I'm working with Arnold J. Rimmer to learn how to speak Esperanto.

    C, but I've learned a bit of Qbasic & Turbo Pascal. I'm moving onto Java next.

    way back when before there was the MS explosion,
    I learned BASIC on the ole Tandy
    and then COBOL and RPG

    now I am learning C and it is tough.


    Trying out the Quiz in the Learning section on this site (which is mostly C++) was a bit of help to see what I get and don't get.
    Got a 44% which is higher than I thought I would get.
    1/2 the questions are purely C++ related and I am still learning the basics of C.

    C++ is one of the most complex programming languages i have ever seen, ever.

    Take your time with it or be prepared to fail.

    (btw, i never actually looked at C, i went straight for C++ and didn't have much trouble.)

    my first was VB and first program with it was a cool tic tac toe game. That was a while ago and then I got into Java (the devil IMHO) and now its C.

    I started with QBasic about 8 years ago, moved onto C after a few years and to C++ last year.

    Qbasic

    Ughhh. Qbasic is horrible. I taught myself really, just got some examples and started RIPPING. qbasic.com helped a lot, too.

    Hi,
    A year and a half a go I had never even knew how to turn on a pc...and stood on chairs when ever a mouse was around...Now I am windows proficient and can programme pascal and more than 1/2 way through a distance learning course on 'C' and will eventually move on to 'C++'. Not bad for someone not of the computing generation...under 35..
    hoping to be certified (programming in c)
    here's the news - I'm officially certified.
