ok, well. First of all i'd like to start programming. Now the only things i've heard you all say are O2= t3 x t6 WHAT!? lol what language are you speaking literally! Does anybody know a really good site to start programing. Eventually i'd like to make a Family History web site for my mom's birthday in a few months. What are the differences. And what would you guys Reccomend? thanks

A nice, modern language for quick results and relatively clean code would be Java...
Not hard to switch to C++ from Java, either.

Thus, I would recommend http://java.sun.com as a good starting point.

Lots of tutorials there, too.

Maybe you should try and plan a little project once you are familiar with the basic language constructs - aimless programming is not going to take you anywhere.

Hope this helps.

I'm learning java currently, and let me tell ya, you don't want to jump into any major projects. I figured when I get real good, I may start compeating in Topcoder. Then I think I will learn some C++.

Dudeaaaaa: As far as what Dreamer said, it isn't so hard to swich from Java to C++, and that's true. So maybe you should start with Java first. That's what I recommend. But then again, it sorta depends on what you want to write I suppose.

I don't see why you wouldn't want to write larger projects in Java - should actually be easier than in most C++ flavours: use the JavaBeans API.
An excellent (if not the) example for this is http://www.netbeans.org - one of the best Java IDEs around, written in Java (and free).
If processing speed is an issue, Java may be slow, but in many cases the Java native interface (JNI) provides you with a good start for a solution, programming interface parts in Java and libraries in C++/Fortran

OOOOOOOOOOOO ZZT!!! I remember that game from a LONG time ago. I also used Megazeux for quite sometime. Got pretty good at it, although I stopped because, for obvious reasons, its not gonna make me rich.

If you gonna start programming in java, start here. http://java.sun.com
