Is that when a computer monitor was a blinking light?
Yes, but after you dropped your deck on the floor, you could scoop up the cards and take them over to the IBM 084...
If you had sequence numbers punched into 73-80 that is
Stop it! You're gonna give me nightmares!
Slow Reflexes, the last time I looked, SICP was Scheme based.
Emu!, even CICS had designer programs, but yes, there's UI designers for nearly everything.
My senior high school electronics project was building a processor out of TTL logic. Got my A, even though I didn't finish it.
I'd go with Python.
I'm a professional developer, and for many years spent all my time in C++, but these days I use Python much more on a day-to-day basis. The stuff that requires speed, usually underlying code, I still write in C++, but most of the time I code in Python.
HTML 5 is what most people learn first right? Its one of the easiest, and you can do more with less code than other Languages mentioned.
If you are using MS Office, VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) is embedded in the product. For .NET development, C# is actually very friendly.
One of my favorite web pages for learning about coding and web development:
C++ is a good language to learn because it is still widely used today, and is foundational. Moving to Java or C# is fairly simple if you know C++. Plus, it's been around for a long time, so you won't come up with many questions that haven't already been answered.
I think the answer is yes, but perhaps depends on what your definition of "programmer" is. I know MATLAB and LabVIEW (and surely others) both provide this sort of thing (thankfully!), but some will say MATLAB and so forth are just for engineers/scientists and not for "real programmers".
+This or TSO sql, or my sql
I use odbc with ms sql or access sql
Haha - my first language was Algol on a Burroughs B-5500 using punch cards. Then a few years later it was Fortan on a teletype terminal connected to an IBM 360 and I thought that was about as good as it gets.
Even if that's true, it's an awful first language and an awful choice for the requirements of the OP.
I coded from the late 60's through the late 90's and used dozens of different programming languages, most of which I have now totally forgotten.
So, I'm with Nick on this. The syntax is far less important than the constructs.
I'm out of date and probably out of touch but my recommendation would be something general purpose, easy and freely available. Probably some flavour of VB.
I would start with Java or C# -- why start with something harder like C++?
These days VB means VB.NET, and for a small shift in syntax you might as well wear big boy pants and learn C#.
This thread show people learn many languages as their first, and
1. HTML5 is fairly new.
2. HTML5 isn't a programming language.
I agree. As useful as it is, a markup language isn't exactly a programming language.
What language do I need to learn to that I can build the next killer app?
On IOS (iPhone, etc...)? Objective-C.
