Ruby, A Good Language To Learn First?
Posted 03 August 2005 - 06:04 PM
My question is this, what do people think of Ruby as a first language for a someone just getting into the programming world?

One more thing you should take into consideration is the popularity of a language. What if you write a program for a website but the server doesn't support the language you use?
By the way, I'm not a professional (yet). Correct me if I'm wrong:)
Oh, I've just viewed Ruby's homepage, and it seems to have some really cool features. I might learn it later as well:p

1. Where can you learn C/C++?
2. Are there online manuals to this?
3. What programs can you use to practice C/C++?

Anyway, thats just my opinion which of course becuase I use C/C++ and learning its history too leads me to this suggestions. Good luck.

I'd say that PHP is probably even easier than Ruby, but it seems to have more pitfalls as you go down the road. (Aka, it has a lack of organization when compared to Ruby)

I pretty much started out with Visual Basic 6, Borland Delphi 7 and C/C++ (using Dev-CPP) and also a little bit of Win32 Assembly.
For a pure hobby I recommend Delphi 7 and C/C++, but if you ever wanted to step into the professional and profitable market, you would have to consider learning the .NET variants of these like VB.NET/Delphi.NET and C#.
Hope that helps (mIRC scripting can also be very fun!).
