Not sure where this would go or if there is even a place for this on these forums:



I am in an Introductory Computer Class at a Pharmacy School (so the standards are small, I know more than my teacher lol, but that doesn't matter because my standards are high for myself).

The class focuses on three things: basic computer stuff, internet, and social media so I thought it would be cool to have a part in my presentation where I ask on social media questions for my presentation.

So my request: name me what you think are the basic intro programming languages. I would like to have 3 bases covered: webpage programming, game making, and general application (as in stuff like Paint, MSWord, File sorting, etc). It'd be nice to keep the presentation limited to 3 Languages but I can mention others and not expand on them.

Understandably so, since it's a markup language and not a programming language. It doesn't contain any logic, it just describes the semantic layout of a document.

cwb50, if you want to talk about programming for the web then you should cover JavaScript. If it doesn't need to be strictly programming-related then HTML is fine of course, but much less interesting. If you want to make people cry and beg you to stop, talk about Cascading Style Sheets :)

For the Web design you can talk of HTML

For game making you can talk of Direct3D (These arent programming language...)

For application making you can talk of C++ (Java is more easy but C++ is used in Windows )

What do you mean when you say they aren't programming language?

So it is more a program than a language? It would still fall under the category yeah?

Okay so sort of the basis is knowing C++, then Direct3D will fall into place, and I guess all that will make html easier? Or maybe html is just really easy?

Hm, interesting. So my presentation could be like two different worlds maybe?

1. Web Based Programs = html (Easiest)
2. a. General Application = C++ (Moderate)
b. More demanding applications = Direct3D (Hardest)

Python (would cover all three bases) - plus is an easy language to get into.
JavaScript (would also cover two of the three bases) - web development, game making, but unfortunately no general application unless used with a host platform, also its pretty easy to get into.
and finally I would suggest (Java) - covers all of them.
