Hello everyone.
Im new in community and programming Posted Image I'm last year in high school and i decided for IT fax. I like programming (i never do it myself, worked in logo for school but thats all, but still i like what i see when people are doing it) and graphic so i would like to work like web disigner or something similar. I dont know any program language so i need advices with what language i should start? Should i start with c++ (because i borrowed today some book about it) or something else?

P.S. im verry sorry for my bad english >.<

Welcome to CodeCall.
Since you're willing to work as a web designer, I'll list you some of the languages that a web page may contain:
  • HTML (Must know to start a web page).
  • CSS (For styling a web page and give it some good look :))
  • PHP (For coding some functions that are able to Connect to databases, edit, add, delete any contect and more you'll know once you get into it).
  • ASP.NET (Can handle with all Microsoft Windows Servers, if you're not willing to use PHP for that, it can be more stable when using it as a web application, also it can help you alot when dealing with MSSQL Servers it may force you to learn another .NET language for the code files such as C#).
  • HTML5 (A new web application's language, it's a whole new world of web applications "http://cuttherope.ie" --> an example).

And you are free to choose from one of these :)

Hello PT, I adhere to Musta suggestion and add Javascript, which will be great for you to learn.
Here you can browse our javascript tutorial section
And here our Javascript resources post

In our web development forum and tutorials section you will find everything you need to know about web programing.

Welcome aboard!

If your goal is to learn web development, I would NOT start with C++. Don't get me wrong, C++ is a great language, but it doesn't get you much progress towards your goal.

I agree with the Panther - pick languages that will help you reach your goal, not languages people say are the 'best'. If you want to be a web programmer, learn web languages :)

Hi PhysoTronic, welcome aboard!

Actually Musta and BlackRabbit already give you good advice related your target to be a web designer. HTML, CSS, and Javascript actually are kind of mandatory. Although PHP and ASP.NET have libraries/frameworks that help you to "avoid" them. But it is good to know the baremetals. However for now I would recommend to focus on HTML5.
