I am new to the computer programming field, in fact, I don't know a single thing about all the different languages.

I love web design and a webmaster, if you will, but I want to start programming computers instead of just websites now.

I'm a 7th grade homeschooler and I have a good amount of free time which I spend just lazying around. I would like to go into the field of video game programming, but i know I have to learn plenty of other stuff as a base first.

I found a wonderful book that will start me off in game programming, but I first need to learn the basics of application programming. I would like to learn C,C++, and C#, but I'm not sure if I should start out with that, because my brother, a computer science major, said those would be good to start out with, but I also need to learn other languages.

Could anyone please recommend a few languages that would be good for me to start out on, a few more for an Intermediate level and some books that could help me learn them.

Thank you!

If you go to the Programming forum, you will find several discussion threads from people asking the very same question. The most complete discussion is found here:


If, after reading the comments there, you have further questions, then simply append them as a reply to THAT thread.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
