What Was Your First Programming Language?

Recommended Posts

I started with no graphics and everything was pixelated my first programming language was BASIC.

BASIC stands for Beginners All-purpose Symbolic. Instruction Code. All computer brands use BASIC then.

It was quite easy to code but you'll spend hours typing it in and editing it afterwards because of Syntax Errors.:D

I think when we were in high school we are taught how to use C programming language. The one with the printf and scanf. But when I took my major in college the first one is the HTML. I think that that is the most basic one and the most understandable language.

My first computer language was BASIC, which I learned how to program on a Commodore VIC-20 computer.

Later I spend some time with FORTRAN, PASCAL, COBOL, Cold Fusion, ASP Classic (VB) and PHP, among others.

ASP Classic (VB) was my favorite language for web design, and Pascal was my favorite for computer programming.

My first language was VB, i started learning during work. I don't have any certificates or diploma in programming i just learned thru experience and projects. Using books and sample projects as references, i learned my way with VB and now i'm into JS and hoping to accomplish my next project.

I learn about programming when I was in grade 11 and my first programming language is c++. I was amazed that time when I have successfully created a simple program on my own and that's also when I started to get interested at programming. Today, I'm eager to learn Java language, website and mobile application development.

Does HTML count as a programming language? I'm not too sure whether it is or not so I'm just not going to say that (although if it is then HTML was actually my first programming language). My first programming language, I believe was Visual Basic. We learned that in high school when I did Computer Science although I don't think we did anything too complex with it in the end other than making a few text-based games. To be fair, I can't even remember anything about Visual Basic anymore. When I went to College, we moved onto Python so everything that I learned about Visual Basic was just forgotten after a while.

My first one was HTML and Visual C++, both relatively at the same time. We had two teachers at school's computering lessons. Each has an individual subject and approach.

Guys how old are you  😮

My first was VB C# and C++ now im working in Unity C++ and Java 

But damn, BASIC xD awesome :D

I'm surprised as well. Didn't see that coming, hehe... They probably started as adults rather than us, as kids or teens.

I think BASIC was active at school at their time. Many kids these days just go with easiest one to start xD

I was first introduced to programming via the C programming language. My faculty was brilliant in explaining all the concepts of C with illustrative programs covering all the topics. Pointers was a bit difficult to understand in the beginning, but as time passed by, I got used to all the concepts. C is the best language to learn if you want to dive into programming. The laboratory sessions were very attractive as we were given some very useful tasks and it was out first interaction with the computer so everyone of us was very enthusiastic.

My first language was Python. I chose it because of its simplicity. While I was learning, I went a little further and started studying algorithms to know how things worked "inside". I think that when entering the world of programming, it is a mistake to ask the question "which language should I choose?". I am one who thinks that language is not the most important thing, what is essential is to learn the basics of programming and to "think computationally".

Mine too. Python is easy for newcomers. One of my worries is that I'm not very good at math xD but I've managed to learn basic principles without much trouble.

Oh, you don't have to be a genius in math. I think the best skill to have is logic reasoning, with that you'll be able to understand and analyze anything!

Well, that's a relief then. To be honest, I didn't perform well enough in maths at school, I wasn't bad but I think I didn't learn too much and I ignore a lot of concepts and principles, and since I often hear that proficiency in math is a plus for programming, sometimes I don't feel too confident. Thankfully, I'm not doing too bad at understanding programming, and yes, logical thinking is fundamental for this field.

As mcnasci24 said , you dont need to be good at math to do programing. Yeah it is a plus if you make complex program with complex algo , but for novice programing you only need your brain and logic xD All you need to know is what u want to make what is your goal and focus on that , rest is on autopilot xD

I kinda disagree. It's true that you mustn't excel at math, but to do programming you need to be able to do basic calculations and formulas. Math teaches you that, and it will help you a lot during development and code writing.

My first programming language was C. I enrolled myself in a computer school ten years ago, and this is where I started. Then I moved on to C++, then HTML, then PHP. It was too long ago that I'm not that good at it anymore but if I have the spare time to review and brush up on it I think I can still code.

I think one of the bests ways to learn anything is to do some ground research first and start practicing. Self-taught programmers are very good, there is so much information on the Internet about the subject!
