  • Hi shehan !

    In today's world, JavaScript is the most used language for jobs. You can create pretty much all types of apps, Desktop , Mobile and Web applications.

    Perhaps, There are different forms of JavaScript like nodeJS, AngularJS etc.

    I personally like Derek Banas's YouTube Channel because He explains pretty well, BTW, He made videos for almost everything about programming.

    OK, Now Let's come to your question.

    Assuming that you are interested in web application, I would recommend starting with the basics of HTML5 because the syntax is very easy and you just need a browser and a text editor (I use Atom).

    After learning HTML5, Go for ASP.NET. The reason why I am telling you to go to ASP.NET is because, The IDE (Visual Studio) has a cool designer where things are broken down into simple things.

    Then go for JavaScript because that is most widely used and you can easily get a job, If you learn it professionally.

    Thanks.

  • How about Small Basic?

    Depends on what you want to be able to do.

  • In my opinion which programming language is best is not a useful start - it depends on what you can do with it and how to progress.

    Personally I like C++ and C#, but hey.

    If you are starting out from scratch then Small Basic is in my opinion the number one choice.

    It has a very low starting hurdle, and once mastered you can go progress to any other language with some basics in place.

    If you interested in web programming, I recommend you JavaScript.  You need only a browser and a text editor.  But if you'd like to share your program, you need a server.

    Following site shows my work with JavaScript (in Japanese).

    This forum is for Small Basic programming language.  So, I also recommend you to Small Basic to learn the internet.  Following blog post will help you.

    Hi Nonki,

    I ran your program CPP576, but nothing appears in the TextWindow.

    Is the URL or its structure still up to date?

  • Hi

    Small Basic could be a useful tool. It's so easy to pick up and can be used to learn many coding techniques used in other languages. It can also teach you how to take a top down-ground up approach to coding solutions in other technologies.

    It was my 1st language and helped me immensely with getting into web developing.
