    Hi, I am final year Interior Design Student from University of Huddersfield. I am currently working on my final major project which is going to be linked to coding. I was hoping that you could help me with my research. I have prepared a short survey, it would be a massive help if you could fill it in for me. It takes less than 2 minutes to complete, I promise. Here is the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/73XLJKK Thank you so much in advance!

What are you wanting to do? Python is a nice scripting language where you can work with algorithms or input easily, vb.NET is a good simple language to work with GUIs (drag and drop with visual studio)

All new problems require investigation, and so if errors are problems, try to learn as much as you can and report back.

Ruby is a nice language, and so is Common Lisp.

'programs' is a very big word. Can you please be more specific with what are you looking for?(Games are programs, too.)
Also, what operating system are you using?

C++, Are you by any chance hoping to do website development as well. If so the process will be much simpler for you. In that case PHP.

Instead of thinking about which language, look for absolute beginner programming tutorials or books on the web. These sources will start you off on the fundamentals and give you a better idea of where you want to go.

But in general, if you want to build websites then PHP is a good place to begin; for Windows Apps Visual Studio.NET (express edition is free) would suffice.

Yes, you can run the executable in a CGI environment, but you are limited in optinos.

You can basically print "Content-Type: text/html\r\nHost:foo.com\r\n\r\n (then print HTML page here)" and that is all that is required for Apache to serve a page from a C/PERL/etc. executable. Many old ASP sites included somewhat sufficient mvc and dataset handling through dlls, such as /cgi-bin/handle.dll?commandlinearg=foo
