Python is my preferred programming language, and it has been for several years now. If you do want to give it a go, I'm sure any of us (who post in this topic anyway) would be willing to answer any questions.

My first programming language was C++, because that's what the high school class taught at the time.

I'm trying to learn C# because I'm making a program to help out at work (I've talked about this before). I earlier made the program as a windows forms application, but I've now learned that that is unsurprisingly outdated. So I'm remaking the whole thing as a WPF application (we still run W7 on the work computers, so no Universal Windows app) using material design and it turns out it's really difficult, though I am learning a lot about MVVM, WPF, design, etc.
One of the things I struggle with is that there are so many different ways to do things and not really any way to tell what's outdated and what's the best way to things. Like what I'm struggling with now - showing errors to the user. There are apparently several ways to do it and I think I've discovered the latest and best(?) way to do it - with IDataErrorInfo interface. Microsoft's pages are hard to read some times as a novice...

Needed to vent a bit about that. I have become quite fond of Visual Studio though, it has worked great so far in writing the application. Could've had better git interface as the one they have now is terrible and non-intuitive to navigate in.

The C family is really fun to learn from my experience

Is C as hard as Java?

Java is part of the C family.

I don't speak C, but it's a much lower-level language than java, and as far as I know a lot more simplistic (C++ is a more evolved version of it). So my guess is that it is difficult. You've gotta manage memory stuff on your own. Whereas in managed languages like java and C#, the system does a lot for you (memory management, automatic garbage collection, etc.)
History has taught us that we don't learn from the past.

as someone who had done C yes it is hard for an inexperienced programmer

Okay thanks, I thought so because...

A few years ago (i dont remember A SINGLE THING PERIOD NO EXCEPTIONS) I watched a C++ tutorial and it was VERY COMPLICATED.

Anyway if i ever code, it would be in Java, because I have Eclipse, and also know how to make a file, and stuff like that.


for Uly: What classes do you have? (I assume your in high school because your 14, what Grade? Im Grade 9 - so a freshman technically, second semester tho atm)

actually answer this somewhere else, i dont wanna break the [serious] rule, ITS SERIOUS!
