Hey /g/ I want to get into programming things other than TI-84 calculators. What language should I learn and where can I find resources to learn?
Yes. It's good to know a high-level language as they are often used in combination with low-level languages when developing apps. Unless you don't plan on making anything contributional to society, learn Python.
Yes it is
There are not many languages that aren't worth learning for some reason or another. Ignore most of what /g/ posters have to say about programming, pick one suited for what you want to do and use search engines to find everything you need.
Let me reiterate: do not think of /g/ as a trustworthy resource
Learn with pascal or ada. Will teach you the general concepts of programming. Do not confuse programming with scripting, but you can learn to program in any language once you learnt the basics...
everything's programmed in c++ now because if you don't include the 90% of programmers that don't feel like learning more than one language in depth, it's hard to hire good programmers.
