Hello everyone,I am very new to programming. i have been interested in learning how to program for a few years now. It wasn't until lately that i actually had time to sit down and work at this. I have googled and searched forums looking at multiple languages ranging from c to ruby, python to java, VB to... well you get the point. I'm interested in object oriented programming but i don't know where to start. i guess i'm looking for a programming language that would make a great building block. i don't want to jump right into c++ (for example), spend a fair amount of money and get into bad habits from the beginning.A quick recap: i'm new to programing, looking to get into object oriented (eventually), i just want to start off on the right foot... what is a good language? something forgiving, and teaches good habits.i know this is a debatable topic, i am very open to any idea/criticism.thanks to anyone fearless enough to help me out.December 8, 2009 at 10:17 pm #32613
