Hello, my name is Mike V( I know of alot of Mike's, so that's what I'll stick with). I just downloaded Eclipse and Python and am currently trying on my own to learn python. I'm a novice at programming. I'm just getting my feet wet. If anyone out there is reading this and you know anything about how to understand basic programming and you know the fundamentals of what the pieces of a program are all about; i.e. what does a function do? How does a program work? Are all programming languages built the same but have different markup( I think that's the word; correct me if I'm wrong). I know i should be reading more; it's just that programming is something that i'm just getting started with, and it helps to talk to people that are in the know. So, if you are in the know, and i know you are; I'm open to suggestions, ideas, recommendations, feedback, ect.

Sincerely,

Soon to be software engineer

P.S. That's what I would like to do. I just feel like i'm lost on the whole subject at times.

Welcome! A little over a year ago, I started out just like you. I'm still pretty noobish, but whatever. :) Codecademy has great Python, HTML/CSS, Ruby, JavasScript, JQuery, and PHP courses. Thenewboston has tutorials covering a wide variety of languages(C, C#, C++, Java, PHP, Visual Basic, and more).. I use both of those sites, and I think there both helpful.

Thanks. I've heard of Codecademy. Never realized that there was such a giant community of programmers(learn something new everyday). :)

One thing I'm learning very quickly is to take things very slow; to not rush into anything. I've been on the Pygame website. Right now I'm just focusing in on just the basics. I heard that python is a good language to start with. My goal is to go to school for computer engineering, and programming is really the glue that holds everything together. If you don't mind brett, I'd like to friend you on here. Not sure what the proper etiquette is on forums. Again, any other information would be helpful.
