My nickname is Brettlee or u can just call me Brett.. I started programming a little over a year ago learning HTML and CSS, then went onto Python and started Javascript. I stopped programming for roughly 5 months, but I'm learning again, just touching up on my HTML/CSS and doing some PHP. In the past week working with PHP I've already came to the conclusion that Python was much much easier. I'm currently learning on Codecademy, but I'd be willing to check out other sites too! I hope to see you around!

Hi Brett, welcome aboard!

 

Unfortunately I have never used Python. But don't worry, we have many Python coders here.  :thumbup1:

Hello Brett, Welcome aboard!

 

PHP is quite easy too, the question is what are you learning for? If it's for getting a job you should keep going with PHP, if it's for making your own programs/scripts, for fun, for yourself, I mean apps for your personal use I have no doubt Python is the way to go.

 

It all depends on what are you looking for.

There are plenty of jobs for good Django developers; is not like Python has no marketable value.

I've always wanted to develop a game or help someone else develop a game, and python isn't used for game developing.. I flirted with pygame before I stopped coding. I don't remember much Python however, I do remember almost all the HTML and CSS I had learned. I'm sure if I started taking the Python courses on Codecademy it would click again. After Codecademy's PHP courses, I plan on learning Java, then AS3, and possibly XML if I can find good tutorials for it.

Welcome :)

 

If you want to develop games you might as well skip Java, there are very few game developers using it anymore.

For game development learn DirectX or OpenGL. But you will need to learn C++ or C# at first.

Major difference between them is that DirectX is only for Microsoft products (Windows, Xbox), and OpenGl is universal. Just read this http://en.wikipedia....GL_and_Direct3D

It's more than that. DirectX is a multimedia library. It includes 3D graphics and sound. OpenGL + OpenAL covers 90% of the issues. Another key difference on graphics is that DirectX either exposes features or not, based on the hardware. By contrast, OpenGL will emulate features that are not supported by the hardware. This means OpenGL will "always work", but can have very low framerates depending on hardware.
