Which language is the best for begginers?

Posted 20 December 2008 - 08:50 PM

I've been geeking out all day and decided that I'd like to start building a web page for fun and would like to know which language is good for someone just starting? If it helps I know C and alittle C++, I also just started playing with batch files fun :D
Also if it helps with ideas I am a Computer Science and Engineering Technology major, so I am trying to get alittle experience with every thing, so that I can find what I like best. That and I am just a geek :rolleyes:

Nope. Download Notepad++ or EditPlus.

w3schools.com is probably your best source of information for anything to do with web design until you get very invested in it. Then books might be a good way to go.

Yep on W3Schools.com you find pretty much information about html and css! But we got a lot information about html and css in this site´s tutorials and snippets :)

When you got a basic knowledge about html and css you should take a look at ASP.Net!
There you have to choose between VB and C#. Because you already know a bit about C / C++ i would suggest you should decide to take C# :)

Client side recommendations:
HTML, CSS, Javascript

Server side recommendations:
PHP, MySQL

May want to eventually give some more specific areas a look into, such as AJAX et cetera.

There are also masses of good books that I could recommend, but there are simply too many to list. I highly recommend some internet "theoretical" books to get you started rather than any actual practical tutorials.

Of the books that you know of which would be the best one to start with?

You should start learning HTML/CSS and Javascript and afterward you will find out that these two are used to create only static pages, and you will want more :D . You should then learn the server side language . It's your choice from here.

You should take a look here: http://w3schools.com/ . A good sorted collection of web tutorials. And use a program which highlights codes such as Notepad++ , Programmers Notepad and so on. Again, here is only a matter of choice and what you like . Think about Dreamweaver also :) .

books


Books? THIS IS TEH INTARWEBS!

Once you've finished learning about HTML/CSS read the following links, in that order:

http://www.tizag.com/phpT/
http://www.tizag.com/sqlTutorial/
http://www.tizag.com/mysqlTutorial/

Yes, in that exact order. In essence it's _just the same_ as any book will provide you. It's less detailed, and they don't swing around with words you probably don't understand.

And not only that, you'll also find them easier to understand. They're written for everyone, whereas some books might be difficult to comprehend at first.

The reason why I'd suggest tizag instead of w3schools is because it's more complete and detailed, and to me : easier to follow.

Good luck with the learning!
