    Kinda the same as Drac (We were both in the same program lol).

    I'm good at HTML, not terrible at ASP, and can do VB.net if I have to.

    I have to agree with the people suggesting C and C-drivative languages. I started there, teaching myself from the SAMS Teach Yourself in 24 Hours book - excellent for ground work. From my Uni course (I do CS) I know ADA, which is pretty similar to C anyway, but tends to be a lot stricter and easier to use in Linux.
    If you want to code for fun and not really get anywhere, I'd suggest lisp or scheme. Good fun, but the parentheses get confusing after a while.

    Computer languages can be divided into two groups: high-level and low-level languages. High-level languages are designed to be easier to use, more abstract, and more portable than low-level languages. Syntactically correct programs in some languages are then compiled to low-level language and executed by the computer. Most modern software is written in a high-level language, compiled into object code, and then translated into machine instructions.
    Computer languages could also be grouped based on other criteria. Another distinction could be made between human-readable and non-human-readable languages. Human-readable languages are designed to be used directly by humans to communicate with the computer. Non-human-readable languages, though they can often be partially understandable, are designed to be more compact and easily processed, sacrificing readability to meet these ends.
    There we go.

    I learned BASIC first, when I was about 11 or 12.
    Then when I got internet access I learned html js, and some web languages.
    ow I've learned C, Java, some C#, php, some asp, and some other languages that are escaping me at the moment.
    BASIC, I learned from small notebook that came with a "pre-computer powerpad" I got for christmas. Go Vtech. :p
    The rest, I learned from trying them out, looking at code, I very rarely use tutorials, but the odd time.

    Java's a dead language.
    And that sucks, because it's my favourite. It's just too slow for most things.
    You should learn C and C++.

    BASIC is fun. :D
    DarkBASIC is nice too, you can make 3d games and other programs with it fairly easily.
    Check it out.

    I'd say do C, then C++.
    There's not all that difference, but C would be kind of needed to learn C++ in some ways.
    C++ is the OO form of C, in a way...

    Yupp, ASM is a low-level language, whereas Java is high-level.
    ASM is fast and Godly, but Java is slow.
    Example of x86(intel) ASM:
    mov bx, 04H
    mul ax, bx
    (My ASM is rusty)
    Example of Java:
    int i = 4;
    int j = (i*j);
    That didn't really show it, but ASM is way more difficult. :p

    about 2 yrs ago, I joined an online game that uses Lua scripting. I like that, and its not too hard to learn. I still play for the scripting purposes, Try this:
    I play it and im learning, almost at a C++ level. : P

    GIF = Graphics Interchange Format. Doesn't necessarily have animation. (But JPEGs can't, afaik)

    computer language

    The term computer language includes a wide variety of languages used to communicate with computers. It is broader than the more commonly-used term programming language. Programming languages are a subset of computer languages. for more information visit my profile..webdesigninsalem.com

    computer language is very difficult because this is a code language but more language of computer interesting for example. html,php,etc
