Programming language advice for complete beginner RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    Sorry if a similar question has been asked before. I looked but found nothing that seemed to fit my situation.

    I have recently upgraded my PC to Windows 8 and would like to learn to create windows apps. I have absolutely zero programming experience, apart from very simple BASIC stuff when I was a kid in the 80's on my Amstrad CPC464, but that is worthless.

    I have just installed Visual Studio Express but it seems I have a few options when it comes to choosing a language with which to develop apps.

    Quote: "You can write Windows Store apps in a variety of languages, such as C# and Visual Basic with XAML, C++ with XAML or DirectX, and JavaScript with HTML/CSS"

    Is any one of these better for a beginner or is it simply personal preference?  Any advice gratefully received.
