    Thanks, was thinking about using c#. Do you mind I u give me a very simple beginners code to see if I can figure out what it does? I already know some python, is the syntax similar?

    Syntax is very different, but I guess there are some similarities.

    Code:
    using System;
    
    namespace HelloWorld
    {
    	class Program
    	{
    		static void Main(string[] args)
    		{
    			Console.WriteLine("Hello, world!");
    			Console.ReadKey();
    		}
    	}
    }

    What do you want to program? It will make it easier choosing a language.

    C is really easy to learn and will basically teach you everything you ever will need to know about programming.

    C and C# are not the same. The only thing they share is the third letter of the English alphabet.

    OOP is lovely though, why such an absolute statement?

    Pointers are definitely not something people easily pick up. And C# and C have much more in common than just the letter.

    I'd learn Java, but that's just my opinion from my experience. I started off with C++ and the idea of prototypes, namespaces and pointers overwhelmed me. I've now been using Java for 2 months, and moving on to OpenGL stuff. Yes, java is actually a lot slower than C++ because of the way the compiler reads the code you wrote, but I wouldn't worry about speed until you actually make something that requires speed, and learn a faster language then.

    P.S. Also unlike C++, java compilers will bitch at you for absolutely everything, and won't even let you run a program unless it's expectations are met, which is actually really good for learning, since you'll know exactly where your problems are.

    I stated with C++. It has some hard concepts, but if you persevere you have a lot of freedom with how you do things. C# and Java are both very similar from my limited use of them, but I may be wrong.
