    Question Your first language...

    What was your first programming language that you learned? (even if it was a little).

    Not C++... moved to GD.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Why are java and html together?

    also, I dont even think html is considered a programming languge.

    Well I did learn html first, and then java was my first programming language.

    My first language was Pascal in high school

    Good question: HTML is not a programming language.

    i would consider html a program language, ina sorts.

    It was my first language, but i said VB cause i didn't see it there.

    I think learning C++ first was a bad idea for me...I got a book in 9th grade on C++ from a math teacher, and I tried reading it but I didn't learn anything because I got so frustrated. I really got into it in 10th grade and started to learn stuff. I would have been better served by learning a less-difficult programming language such as visual basic. But then again because I learned C++ first everything else seems...well...much easier.

    wow.. this question has only been asked 100 times.

    oh well.

    i started with PASCAL, and i never looked back.

    unfortunately this person forgot to include the wonderful PASCAL and COBOL/FORTRAN and *gasp* ADA95 or ADA83!!!

    wow.. such a crime is only punishable by 5 years of coding with visual basic!
