    i like c++ and php. they have the similar syntax.
    i'm not sure if c++ is a beginer language but its not hard to learn. i am currently learning cobol and it is far easier than c++. Since i already know c++, cobol seems simple and not as sophisticated.

    there are many languages to chose from, it just depends on your skill level and the amount of time you want to put into it.

    C++ and PHP have similar syntax? Not in my opinion.

    I am hard working.

    I don't mind spending a lot of time and I am a mathematician as well.

    C++ is a great language to learn. PHP, if you didn't know, is written in C, C++ predecessor and you shouldn't have to much trouble learning it, one thing that did screw me over though was how include files are used differntly. their syntaxs are very much the same (i'd like to hear some arguments KeZZeR). alot of programs, especially games are written in C++ now days.

    C++ is a great language to put on a resume'. I have found that it is much more difficult than other languages as I learned C++ first. It will probably take you a little while to master but is well worth it. It is also a requirement to learn game programming, which is a feild that I am currently enrolled in. I used the book "Learn C++ in 24 Hours", Liberty and still use it as a reference for many things. It is an excellent book for beginners in C++.

    there's a couple of myth-conceptions here....


    C/C++ is not "the foundation for a lot of languages" - it is part of a greater family of languages which has evolved and branched for almost 40 years.


    PHP is a similar syntax to C - but it is not C... some behaviour and syntax differs between the two - especially the object model.


    C/C++ is a good starting language - to learn C you need to learn a good bit of why your computer is the way it is... which helps you to learn proficient and efficient coding techniques.

    C++ is a beautiful language. I fully endorse the language, and loved learning it. It's one of the few languages that has continued to be ported to each new situation, where normally there would be a new language developed. Even with web development, libraries have been created to enable server side web development.

    All in all, an excellent language to know.
