"What programming language should I start off with?"

This is a frequently asked question from people who are curious about programming. So here's the short answer: it depends.   In my experience with various programming languages such as assembly, C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Python, TI BASIC, Visual Basic, Ruby, Bash scripting, Windows Batch scripting, and even Brainfuck (though this was a curiosity), the language itself doesn't really matter. Over time you learn a lot of things that can carry over to other languages, and you find that
 

Programming application and language types

When it comes to making a program for a computer, while there are a plethora of languages and ways to make an application, there's only two types of both applications and languages. This post will cover what those types are.   Programming Language Types There are two basic types of programming languages: low level and high level.   Low level languages are the "hardware" languages, which are typically defined into two more types: Machine language, which are literall

What is a computer?

Let's start with the most basic of questions when it comes to programming a computer: What is a computer? It seems a silly question for a device we take for granted but it's important to understand what it is if you want to program for one.   To put simply, a computer is a calculating machine. That's it. Its sole purpose is to compute things. A computer need not be electronic either, as there were mechanical calculating machines such as Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine, with even pr

Welcome to the programming guides!

After stewing on it for a while, I decided to start a blog of guides for the budding programmer. This will be covering the basics and some intermediate topics, and if I feel like sharing something more advanced then that may crop up once in a while. This series is intended more to give a crash course on programming and concepts in general and while I may use a programming language for examples, I must emphasize the language does not matter here. The programming language is the means with which t
