Programming guide

I want to start learning how to programming but I don't know where I can start, there are so many languages.

I was thinking about start learning C++ or JavaScript, which of both is the best?

If anyone here has a guide on how to start in this world I would appreciate to see it.

Any tip worth too.

Are you a faggot? -> Rust
Are you a poonigger? -> Java
Are you a straight white male? -> C
Are you a woman? -> Cookbook

I think I will go for C++, I just want to create applications and 2D/3D games and also maybe a bit of web design.

So C++ and HTML 5 would be the best?

Are you an Aryan demigod, forged as the prototype for a masterrace of titans? -> Scheme.

Are you black? -> ...


web design is a bunch of shit and all of it is cancer.

frontend is html+css+javascript
you don't just learn one they all go together.

backend is php/python/ruby/perl, or C
pick one.

if you cant figure out what to learn then programming isnt for you
people who are truly interested in the subject and tech at large will be able to learn by themselves. you sound like you belong on reddit

Is there a list of all programing languages?

Is there a list of niggers and queers that create low quality thread on my board?

Holla Forums's entire ip log

Verily this is the best list.

fuck off leftypol

Codecademy has a class dedicated to Python

And on Youtube there are a lot of tutorials about C++

P.D Java is shit do not approach him

I am gay what language there is for me.


It's already established that Rust is for worthless fags.

I need to be good at maths to learn programming?

What about for an autist for whom the cost of shipping is prohibitive of "starting from the greeks" by doing math in FORTRAN on an IBM mainframe?

Not really unless you program something that has cryptography

What do?

What you guys think about python? it's good for a beginner first language?

Learn C programming language from K&R "The C Programming Language" book.

Bruv, just roll C or Go. My first language was Java back in high school. I wish it would've been C. Whatever you decide, make sure you stay away from C++; it's horribly designed and too much for a beginner.

Pretty much this. Btw, if you don't go the manly route you'll have a hard time learning anything even close to low-level since you'll always think "oh this would be so much easier in python/whatever why bother".
I strongly suggest you stay away from C++ (or OO in general) when you start. Learning to program is hard enough by itself, you don't want to learn OO wrong only to have to relearn it later.

"Programming" cookbook recipes for girls would actually be a pretty good satire of the "made with code" drag and drop shit. Imagine how much of a shit-storm there would be if it was successful.

C is a language that you can grow with. The most important thing to do when learning C is to focus on fundamental concepts (such as type safety, resource management, and invariants) and programming techniques (such as resource management using scoped objects and the use of iterators in algorithms) and not get lost in language technical details. The purpose of learning a programming language is to become a better programmer, that is, to become more effective at designing and implementing new systems and maintaining old ones. For this, an appreciation of programming and design techniques is far more important than understanding all the details. The understanding of technical details comes with time and practice.

In an announcement that has stunned the computer industry, Ken Thompson,
Dennis Ritchie and Brian Kernighan admitted that the Unix operating
system and C programming language created by them is an elaborate April
Fools prank kept alive for over 20 years. Speaking at the recent
UnixWorld Software Development Forum, Thompson revealed the following:

"In 1969, AT&&T had just terminated their work with the
GE/Honeywell/AT&&T Multics project. Brian and I had just started
working with an early release of Pascal from Professor Nichlaus Wirth's ETH
labs in Switzerland and we were impressed with its elegant simplicity and
power. Dennis had just finished reading 'Bored of the Rings', a
hilarious National Lampoon parody of the great Tolkien 'Lord of the
Rings' trilogy. As a lark, we decided to do parodies of the Multics
environment and Pascal. Dennis and I were responsible for the operating
environment. We looked at Multics and designed the new system to be as
complex and cryptic as possible to maximize casual users' frustration
levels, calling it Unix as a parody of Multics, as well as other more
risque allusions. Then Dennis and Brian worked on a truly warped
version of Pascal, called 'A'. When we found others were actually
trying to create real programs with A, we quickly added additional
cryptic features and evolved into B, BCPL and finally C. We stopped
when we got a clean compile on the following syntax:

for(;P("\n"),R--;P("|"))for(e=C;e--;P("_"+(*u++/8)%2))P("| "+(*u/4)%2);

To think that modern programmers would try to use a language that
allowed such a statement was beyond our comprehension! We actually
thought of selling this to the Soviets to set their computer science
progress back 20 or more years. Imagine our surprise when AT&&T and
other US corporations actually began trying to use Unix and C! It has
taken them 20 years to develop enough expertise to generate even
marginally useful applications using this 1960's technological parody,
but we are impressed with the tenacity (if not common sense) of the
general Unix and C programmer. In any event, Brian, Dennis and I have
been working exclusively in Pascal on the Apple Macintosh for the past
few years and feel really guilty about the chaos, confusion and truly
bad programming that have resulted from our silly prank so long ago."

Major Unix and C vendors and customers, including AT&&T, Microsoft,
Hewlett-Packard, GTE, NCR, and DEC have refused comment at this time.
Borland International, a leading vendor of Pascal and C tools,
including the popular Turbo Pascal, Turbo C and Turbo C++, stated they
had suspected this for a number of years and would continue to enhance
their Pascal products and halt further efforts to develop C. An IBM
spokesman broke into uncontrolled laughter and had to postpone a
hastily convened news conference concerning the fate of the RS-6000,
merely stating 'VM will be available Real Soon Now'. In a cryptic
statement, Professor Wirth of the ETH institute and father of the
Pascal, Modula 2 and Oberon structured languages, merely stated that P.
T. Barnum was correct.

In a related late-breaking story, usually reliable sources are stating
that a similar confession may be forthcoming from William Gates
concerning the MS-DOS and Windows operating environments. And IBM
spokesman have begun denying that the Virtual Machine (VM) product is
an internal prank gone awry.

SICP said, if my memory serves me, that it was written because MIT students lacked a fundamental understanding of programming as an art, does that mean that there are no programming fundamentals books that predate it? How did people write applications for their IBM machines? Poorly?
