Are you just starting to learn to program, and wondering what’s the first programming language you should learn?
I will answer exactly that in this post.
Before I began, let me ask you a question.
Why do you want to learn to program?
- Do you want to build Web Applications?
- Do you want to build fancy Web Features?
- Do you want to build Websites?
- Do you want to have your own startup?
- Do you want to become a Front-End, Back-End or Full-Stack Developer?
If you do not have any prior programming experience, then start off by learning the fundamentals of HTML and CSS and build a blog from scratch…
Here is the link to the World’s best HTML and CSS Video Course Training, and it happens to be free, enjoy
The word “car” and “carpet” both have the word “car” in it, but it doesn’t make it the same thing.
Other languages have a certain computer requirement. After those requirements are met, certain software must be installed. Once you have done all the setup, you can finally start writing code.
A lot of people say Python and Ruby are very easy. True, Ruby and Python have simpler syntax. This is why people recommend beginners to start with these languages. That is fine if your goal is just to learn to program. You can pick any language you want.
BTW, you can get comfortable with the syntax in a week.
Here’s the visual depiction of the historical programming language rankings.
