well, i would start playing with javascript, since you just need a webbrowser and a text editor to work with, still in that matter i recommed you to download html-kit which preview option is pretty useful for watching what your javascript is doing.

of course, along with javascript you will need to learn some html which is easy.

Once you become proficient on it you can go to php, then you are ready to met real deal OOP and start with some tougher language as c++, .NET (c#, vb.net, etc) or java

keep us informed on your decission, there is plenty of helpful tutorial and people in codecall for you

Hello welcome to codecall programming community.. :)
I'll suggest learning to program in C++, java or PHP because those languages contain some similarity in terms of syntax and logic application.
They are good because they are cross platform language that is highly demanded by so many companies :)
If you learn at least one programming languages there will be no problem in learning the other languages. Yes.. you'll learn the other languages fast that you've never expected because you are almost familiars what are the things you need like looping, control statements, variable declarations etc..
Good Luck in learning your very first programming language and don't forget to check out our tutorials

Before you do, I think it will be good to tell you that learning C++ will not be easy in any way. But once you learn it, you will be the god of programming.All .net languages will come so easily to you. You will be like papabear over thurrrr.

(I'm learning C++ right now from TheNewBoston So what was actually said about C++ being the hardest language is a popular opinon. Microsoft sadly did not rate the difficulty on .net languages.)

That would be a good start. But alot of other ( and more popular ) languages use braces in the language. VB.NET does not. But don't be discouraged, I started here and prob 40% of the total population of programmer's did too. ( Programmer's back to the old fortran age.). Also VB is a new language and is still recieving a large amount of new updates along with C# and C++.

To begin VB.NET I would downlaod VIsual Studio which uses OOD as well as OOP.
OOD is what you want to begin with. This is basiclly saying that its drag / drop most of the time. This is good.
OOP is more advanced but alot of languages ( Like LUA or BS ) don't have any IDE (Integrated development environment) for programming. So this is and should be a priotry if you ever wish to get into non-microsoft-based programming.

Welcome to CodeCall, Era11!
I am guessing you don't do much low level programming on your job ( --> Posted Image C :laugh: <-- ). Given that, I nominate Java, JavaScript and PHP.

Happy Coding!
