    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!

I am a teen with an interest for programming. However, i just do not know where to start, HTML5 and CSS3 were just too easy, and C# is a bit above me. Any ideas?

maybe take a look at python? its known for being very easy to use but there's a lot of depth in what you can do with it. is there a particular type of programming you're interested in?

Web design mostly, i would be diving into PHP but my wamp server wont work and I don't feel like paying for a hosting service. I played around with python as a kid but i could never make anything useful with it, just a couple of spamming programs and a basic captcha decoder.

PHP isn't actually a programming language, but its great to wet your feet in. It has a lot of programming aspects to it. I'm a web developer, and on local environments I use a program called XAMPP. It's almost the same thing as WAMP I think, but its in an easy to use .exe. You just run the program and start up the service. Place the file in the xampp folder, and your good to go! Give it a try:
apache friends - xampp for windows

Also, a great place to look for tutorials on PHP is this guy, if you don't mind video tutorials:
phpacademy's Channel - YouTube

He explains really well, and has a forum so you can ask questions if you don't understand things. Good luck!

Do you mind explaining this a little more? I don't think i get where you are coming from, but thanks for the video tuts. I'll try XAMPP when i get back to my home computer.

PHP is a programming language. Just to clarify. HTML and CSS is not.

I taught myself programming 8 years ago. I am 21-years-old now. I started with AutoIt. It's a scripting language and mainly used for automating forms and your webbrowser but it has some power to it. Has a GUI editor so you can create some forms for your app.

Check it out @: AutoIt - AutoItScript

Welcome aboard! JavaScript and PHP seem like natural stepping stones from what you've learned already.
