JavaScript is quite easy at basic levels, and gets a bit more complicated at the higher (like all things).
I found learning JavaScript to be easy/fun at www.codeacademy.com
Haven't tried learning c++, but have heard that its not for the fait of heart.

all my legos are stored at my parents hose... so that wont be happening....

Oh boy. I'm gonna rage hard at this, but I still want to learn it due to the fact that I don't do anything over break.

Just become part of a popular coding forum and they can help.
You can also ask in the computer section/club because we do have users that program.

I personally would suggest if you are going to teach yourself a language to look into PHP or Java. There is a lot of money and a lot of jobs that require it. More money in Java, but PHP is always in demand too. C++ isn't used too much these days in business/products, but it is a good place to start if you want to really learn the primitive parts of computer software. C++ is more common in things like operating system development and such, but not so much in commercial software or web apps. Java is heavily used for internal, and consumer software in businesses, and this includes Java based web applications which is HUGE right now. I can't tell you how many jobs I see every day looking for Java developers with skills in things like JBOSS, Tomcat, Websphere, J2EE, etc.

Not trying to steer you away from something you want to learn, but I'm just pointing out what I have seen as an IT professional. If I had the time to learn Java, and didn't despise programming, I would definitely do it since you will always be able to find work, and you will get paid very well :)

Makes enough sense. Like someone else said, C++ isn't for the faint of heart.
But because we live in the internet age Java seems like the best thing to learn first.
So starting next summer I will try to learn it.

Well, if you want to learn more about Internet then learn about IPv4/6, HTML5, and CSS.

MFDOT. It wouldn't hurt to learn Cisco or some other huge router language either.

If your going to look into web stuff I also recommend PHP, and database/SQL. MySQL is very prevalent in data driven web sites, but enterprise level web applications typically use Oracle. You can setup a LAMP or WAMP server easily for testing using a tool called XAMPP. From there you can start building data driven sites right away using PHP, MySQL, and HTML. These 3 are relatively easy and you can easily teach yourself enough about them to make yourself useful with them.

I wouldnt start with C++. If you absolutely want to learn C++ start with Ruby or Python and then C++ cause you will learn C++ much faster then.

But are you going to do some web-programming/development or what? Make web pages or webprograms?

If your going to do some web development I would recommend Groovy. With Groovy you can mix together with Java in ways no other language can.

Scala, however, is super fast, almost as fast as Java.

yeah, try out on making webpages for fun.
I knew basic HTML, making those webpages from Microsoft Notepad.

I forgot since then, but I know the basic HTML codes. That's all I know and I want to move up to Java.

From my experience with JavaScript, I've looked at C++ it does look somewhat similar, but it's not TOO hard.

JavaScript is fun. My friend and I make our own Minecraft Mods. Just little, simple things though.

If your going to mke webpages and already know HTML, I would then learn CSS and maybe Javascript after that. This is for the visual (design) part.

For the functional part, how things work under the hood, there are many variations. I would start with Ruby. If your learn Ruby it will be easier to learn other languages! :)

I'd recommend Python over Ruby

Go to code academy for JavaScript, its a free online website, and is amazing.

The three big languages are C++, Java and Python. Personally I like Ruby (similar to Python) since I am a Rails developer. Also doing a lot of Java lately since I am working on an Android application.


Learn the fundamentals of one language and then you can apply that knowledge to any other programming language.
