    Exclamation Programming Problem

    Hi all, I just wanted to know which programming language I should learn because I do not like C++ now days (Been learning C++). I know the basics but I need something interesting to learn and program.
    I am also good at Web Design and coding, I'd like anything similar to this is available then I am ready to learn. Can anyone suggest me which programming language I should switch on to?
    Thank you.

    Agreed. Java.

    If you understand the basic idea of C/C++, but you want to focus more on concepts and such without focussing on pointers, and memory management, Java will probably help you out. After you learn Java, depending upon your level of success with it, though, you might find out that C++ will become easier.

    Don't thank us unless you actually like Java.

    I think java is a good starter for class programming, while a pretty bad introduction to logic behind the stl and stl like classes. Java's Container classes are so backwards to me, even when generics are introduced. I started off really learning programming with java, but I do nothing but C++, and I thank java for helping me with that. Not to mention java has a lot of built in stuff which I can't say for C++, mainly multithreading and sockets.

    Learn assembly language and binary, hexadecimal, etc., if you wanna know how
    computers work, and I'd say learn C, since it's close to assembly language.
