Yea, Java is a great language. You can make games, websites, apps, and software!

I am not going to start programming from the beginning. At the moment i am learning C++ and I need to learn another.
That is why i ask it from you.
I think JAVA is better

I started with Java and switched to C++ (Still learning it though) once I got the basic stuff down. Worked great for me :)

Visual basic and python are the best language to identify the basic rules of programming. 
In those languages syntax are easy than others.

Hello, I am Alex, an Associate of Computer Science. First you should learn how to use Alice 3D. Learning to use Alice 3D will rapidly increase your skill and understanding of making 3D objects and Java. Once you learn Java, you can move onto C# which will get you intelligent in many types of programming. Then you can go to HTML which will get you deep into programming and will bring you to CSS, and then JavaScript, then PHP, then SQL, then ASP, then at C, you will learn some concepts of Low Leveled Programming which can bring you to Assembly Language, or the most stressful language to learn. As a stress reliever, learn BASIC which can perform most of the tasks that C can perform, but it's much easier. Now with the knowledge of all these languages, you can make anything computer-related.

When you get to Mobile Development, start off with Android Development because that will make the job much easier, and the best part about Android Development is the fact that the main language you need to learn is Java. You might run into some Ruby while working with Android Development, with Ruby, you can learn Python, then you can jump to Apple Development and use X Code. Please know that Apple Development is the complete opposite of Windows and Android.

Now with the knowledge of all of this, you can do A N Y T H I N G !

Hello Frenonia,

It really depends on YOUR interests. In terms of learning, I'd say avoid languages such as Java, C++, C#, and even JavaScript for the time being. Depending on your interests, I'd pick out of one of the following: PHP (plus HTML & CSS), C, Python, and ActionScript.

I suggested these languages because they are languages that are easier to get going on, you can have your first program done with some cool functions within hours of learning it. And also, each of these languages represent different areas of programming, such as games, websites, and software.

My first programming language is ActionScript, and it really is the best way to make games. The syntax is what you can expect from languages such as Java, and the developers of this language have really succeeded in creating a powerful, yet simple set of classes for it. This would really set you up well for future languages, as it did for me. 

But as I said earlier, it depends on YOUR interests. The important thing is that you get started and learn to love your first ever programming language and dedicate yourself to it, good luck! :D
