Which language should Iearn next?

I'm I'm grade 12 and come Fall 2014 I will pursuing a major in business and computer science. I know HTML and BASIC inside and out. They only teach you a bit of C and a bit of C++ in University so I want to know more languages. What exactly is want do with the languages is still unknown. I just want to be able to get a job when I get my degree immediately. That won't happen if I only 2 languages.

Well, HTML is a markup language. C is a syntax, so you can branch off into other syntaxes that are likened to it (such as PHP). The real question is what is your goal in learning these? Most people don't really "know" the languages, they just know the rules and syntax operation. This way you can be more flexible in what you do. Most of us keep cookbooks of code and libraries we frequently use.

HTML is for web development, C and C++ is more for programming. Where do you see yourself heading in the industry? Application, web development, networking, security, desktop support? There is a vast array of disciplines to branch into. Don't be surprised if you find yourself in multiple roles.

Just kidding :wub:

lol. Java? i just said the first language that came to my mind. i have no experience whatsoever so go wait for more responses.

I would say java.

i would say c and c++ then you could go over to java, as java is more complicated and is not a good choice for a first language

I basically want to learn a bit of everything so I can program in any situation. But I want to make applications so my question is which language Should I pursue next in anticipation of going into computer science fall 2014

I'd say learn web based languages, such as HTML, PHP, Javascript and CSS.

Are the codes similar like if you know one you basically know the other? Or is it completely different?

Between these four there aren't many similarities as they're all intended for

vastly different purposes, but as mentioned above, many programming and scripting

languages are heavily inspired by C in their syntax structure. If you know C or C++

it will become pretty easy to learn one of those other languages (such as PHP) if

you actually ever need it. You will already have the basic understanding of programming

in something similar to C, and with the help of almighty Google you should be able to

get usable results pretty quickly.

At least that's been my experience. Depending on what language you will jump to,

there will of course be some idiosyncrasies to consider and adapt to (for example,

if you go from C to objective-oriented programming in C++ and then to Java, and this

doesn't take into consideration all the other powerful tools you have in C++ which

aren't present in C).

I can recommend C because it is a pretty simple language in and of itself (doing

something with it can become vastly complex, but the language itself is not all

that complicated). If you wish to avoid C I can also recommend C++, it will allow

you to stay much closer to C than for example Java.

Then again, maybe you wish to do something completely different, like functional

programming in Haskell? It is on the rise last I heard. ;)

EDIT:

Personal opinion: Java is important, but it's a terrible language. I'm not an

expert on it, so this opinion is admittedly mostly based on other people's opinions,

so feel free to flame/mock me for this, but it is my opinion and that's that. :D

It's different types of coding.  PHP is a server based scripting language, while HTML is a markup that uses the browsers dom to display information.  CSS is just another markup that specifies how styling is applied to HTML.  The important thing about learning PHP is to learn the concept of object oriented programming, too many websites are coded top down which puts a lot of overhead on the system.  The more robust you make your libraries and code, the more is can be reused and thus reduces your overhead.

 

Most of the time it's not about the language, it's about the techniques and quarks that makes or breaks the usefulness of code.

Java or Python. Java is very widely used, and Python is used pretty often and makes it really easy to write short programs.

I agree with some folks here that you should get into C/C++ more deeply. The first language I learned was PHP, and it gave me a really good basis on object-oriented programming, it should help you too. The real thing is that once you learned the logical process of programming, there are no boundaries when it comes to languages. As @Flynn said, it's more about the techniques.
