Do 2 things:

1) Type in your favourite search engine the following: "Programming Languages".

2) Come back here, listing what you have learned.



Why the hell everyone needs to be spoon fed today. What the hell is happening. Hope i wont be working in India any time soon.

It is quite funny really... because we all "use a particular language for a particular purpose" but actually most applications can be made in any general purpose language. It is only when you get to the point of Artifical Intelligence, Cryptology or Molecular Science kind of levels that language choice is very important.

For a beginner, look for one with a lot of resources, easy to pick up and able to transfer skills to other languages. Java and C# are pretty good choices, as is python.
