First of all I don't know is this the right section to talk so if its wrong please excuse me.:hum:

So the question is,I'd like to be a Web Developer & I like the game development as well.Lets say its just a side quest.So as a beginner which programming language should I learn first?■

Python?
Java Script?
Java?
C++?
C#?
PHP or SQL?


I need you help guys.Thank you.:star:
 
For web development: Python / PHP, Javascript will be best choices
For desktop development: C#, or C++
Depending on what you do, any of these might require access to a SQL database, so basic knowledge of SQL language (MySQL is good starting point) will do no harm.

If you've never programmed in your life I usually recommend starting with an object-oriented programming language such as http://scratch.mit.edu so you can get the mindset of a programmer. It's not all about memorizing syntax, it's about having logic and knowing how to put ideas and thoughts into something.

I'm a bit late to this party, but I'll chime in.

You should start out with some form of BASIC. I advise strongly against using Microsoft's Visual Basic because it ties into the .NET framework which means that it's incredibly broad and therefore very inappropriate as a learning tool.

Play with BASIC for a bit but don't get married to it. Move on to C (not C++) once you feel ready for a challenge. Get comfortable with C, learn the ins-and-outs, then pick up C++, C#, and Java. You should be able to pick up the grammatical, technical, and implementation differences between the 4 major C-style languages quite easily.

I still believe in learning logic before syntax. :) Too many coders I know have nearly photographic memories and understand the insides and outs of the language but when it comes to writing code it is too long, sloppy, and with logic it could be shorter and more efficient.

Yup. IDE can help with syntax, the logic on how to make something work can translate to different language.
