What programming language to learn RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Back in college I took some programming classes, mainly C, I've do some Visual Basic, VBS, and VBA programming. I want to learn a new language, something more mainstream somthing that could help down the road with WHS or VMC programming. What would be a good language to learn? I was thinking C#

  • I am biased, of course... go C#!

    Probably a good idea to have a look around at dev jobs in your area and see what languages people are hiring for.

  • That will depend on what you want to do. For Windows-based programming, I agree with Sam. C# is the way to go. As an alternative, VB.Net would be a decent choice (and probably easier for you, since you have VB/VBA experience already).

    If you want to do other types of programming, take a look at what languages are commonly used in your area for the type of work you want to do.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
