Hi, I am new here and have never done any serious coding. I've messed around in Visual Basic but that's it.

I wanted to know what is the best language to start with? There are so many, and I need your all's opinion.

Regards

You are really able to work hard and enough skills of programming and logics then the best programming language for you will be the Java, and then you have another option of android apps for which the java is the prerequisite.

Java is a good starting point then c# then c++/c

I too wanted to start Java learning, I had started on a website codeAcademy but after doing some exercises I stopped. I want some real favor from people here about some notes on Java for online study.

My suggestion is to with c++ first then you can easily learn Java. Because there is lot of similarity between the too except the synax of couse. Also after learning Java, you can specialize in Servlets or JSP or Applets which have a great future in carrier point of view.

Java is so full of security holes that they are now releasing patches every couple of weeks. Do yourself a favour and keep it off your computer.

C++ was the language I used to learn object oriented programming (which is currently the most popular). I already knew many procedural and rules based languages but different types of language are almost as hard to learn as the first language you learn as they require an entirely different approach.

To be fair, the reason they are discovering the holes is because it has become enormously more popular in the last couple of years, thanks to Android, et al. So more usage means more people finding bugs.

I *love* C++, but let's face it: 100% of the security there is pretty much up to the programmer. (I know, I know...not literally true. But certainly one minor goof by the programmer will open up the entire application to all kinds of security problems.)

Last place I worked, we wrote in a combination of just about everything: C++, Java, c-shell scripts, JavaScript, and a weird Java platform that was basically a pre-processor for Java. You could write Java and omit the semicolons. And make references to GUI elements as if they were direct Java objects. Nominally easy to program; tough to debug.

You mean it is somewhat similar to the most secure of the operating systems - Windows - which only appears to be the most vulnerable of all because it is the one most subjected to attack (which means that far more of the actual holes have been discovered and patched compared to the alternatives).

Still even though Java may have fewer overall security holes compared to other languages it still has more known and exploitable security holes. probably running it on your desktop is safe enough as long as you don't let it run in a browser.
