    Hi all,
    I am leaving my current job and begining to learn programming and i am very excited. So, Is there anyone who is learning programming? Also any programmer here?

    I think i will have many questions and users of this website are friendly. So i can use some help, maybe?
    I have a good friend who will show me the way. But I can't bother him for everything.

    I am graduating with a computer science degree and starting a software developer job in May, so I'm a programmer! :blush: There's definitely plenty of resources on the internet for whatever questions you may have. Personally, I have the most experience with video game programming, so a lot of work with Unity and C#. I'm not sure if you're learning anything specific to start, but I'm always down to talk programming.

    I've been making games for a few years now. Oddly without using actual programming lol. I use mostly the visual scripting in game engines like unreal and gamemaker just starting to learn c++. I'll let you know how it goes haha
    What programming language are you learning, anything in particular you want to develop?

    Hello,
    I was also graduated with a software engineering degree. But I didn't learn much things from it. I wanted to learn programming since a few years ago. But I was depressed and also I had to work most of the time. Now I feel good and energetic and also I can leave my job and spend most of my time learning programming.

    I will start with C#, But will learn many other languages too.

    I got really burnt out on IT by doing system admin and database stuff for over 10 years, but my original passion was for programming and games/art, too! I monkeyed around with Unity last year, and this is very inspiring to look back into it.

    I've been working in technology-software-programming adjacent jobs for a while now, so I know a thing or two about that ha ha. Over a decade ago, when I was studying computer science in college (under-graduation) our professors stressed on knowing C, C++, C# and Java really well. Of course those languages are still used nowadays, but other languages have picked up really fast over the years - Python, Ruby, R, Scala, Perl and a host of other product and domain specific languages. It really depends on what you want to become, or what domain/field you want to work in! :slight_smile:.

    It's really confusing, I know ha ha. Maybe twenty years ago, you could say you're a programmer or studying to be one and that was it. But nowadays you have a host of very, very specific/niche domains and role-specific jobs. For example, my fancy title in the little start-up technology adjacent company I work in is Developmental Analyst and Market Researcher. That's a mouthful for the liaison-ing I do with the other departments. My actual programming is limited to a bit of R Programming, SQL and Javascript. I hardly use any other software,products or programming languages.

    So discover what field you wanna get into! UX/UI Design? Digital Marketing? Data Analytics/Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning? Supply Chain? Depending on the domain you're looking at, the extent of expertise you may need to have in software/programming languages could very well change!

    Apologies for the long post! Hope it's helpful and not confusing ha ha.

    Hi and thanks for the reply!
    Interesting to know these things. I think I will learn many languages (not in-depth for now). I am considering to become a web developer for now. But it can change!
    My friend (who is a good programmer) suggested me to learn these ones respectively if I want to be a web developer:

    C#, HTML, CSS
    JavaScript
    Asp.Net MVC/Asp.Net Core
    Tsql and relational data base analysis
    TypeScript/ React / Redux
    Http
    Web API, using the Asp.Net Core

    I used to do graphics and game engine programming for fun, but lately I have been learning to do most of the tasks that I did on the computer long hand. Strangely, I am actually much more productive doing everything off-line as much as possible.

    @Mihael I don't know if that is a good or a bad thing ha ha. I do agree that Javascript is still considerably used nowadays, but we have plenty of new programming languages, scripts and softwares out there now. So I really don't know how to feel if the C languages are still focused on. :slight_smile:

    It would be better if they taught programming in a less dated programming language, agreed. C++ is mostly used now in embedded systems, and it’s not a romantic career :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    C++ is also big when it come to robotics, AI and machine learning.

    I'm mostly self taught. At work I program with C# .Net and SQL. In my off time though I've been pursuing languages like Haskell and Rust. I'm really into the idea of functional programming even if it can be hard to figure out how to do things coming from an imperative object oriented paradigm.

    It’s an interesting thing. I’ve done some of it.

    I was a software engineer from 1982 until 1998 when I became disabled. I wrote a number of programs for end users, databases and did compiler maintenance.
