    Well I know how to use HTML/CSS but I don't include that as programming since it's just changing the way web pages look it doesn't really have any coding involved.

    I know a bit of HTML and I am trying to learn Swift at the moment.

    Most languages are very similar so you learn one really well and end up noticing that some other are basically the same

    I first learnt python then moved onto HTML, after that I haven't done any more coding

    I've scratched the surface of HTML and C#. Lost a fair bit of it though...I was taught HTML through Uni and School a bit and I tried to teach myself C# during my Final Year of Uni so I could be at least somewhat competent to do simple tasks on making our Project (game in unity) and let our programmers focus on harder stuff.

    I was a developer who ultimately was made the lead, but we only had 2 programmers so I didn't want them wasting time doing stuff like implementing audio, particle systems and other stuff. By the end I basically was the person implementing all the new assets whilst the programmers were working hard on making a Kraken Boss and getting all the behaviours working properly. It was pretty satisfying being able to make Particle Effects or new SFX myself and then to get it in and working and push it for everyone else to see without needing any assistance :)

    You may wanna try to use the apps from Sololearn. They have multiple apps to learn different programming languages interactively. They support Android/iOS/Webbrowser, etc.
    F.e. C++,C#, JS, Python, Html/Css and so on. They are free to use :)

    C++, C#, Java, VB, SQL, PHP, HTML, JavaScript, etc...

    My favorites currently are Java and C#, with a slight leaning towards C# because the code feels a little cleaner.

    Haha thanks, awesome that you mention that. I'm actually halfway through the SoloLearn bit ^^
    What I meant though, was what to do after I finish SoloLearn :eek:

    Dude that sounds awesome, any way we could enjoy some of that hard work of yours ^^?

    Do the challenges they offer :) As many times as possible. They make fun, because of the competetive aspect(playing against other "students") and you internalize the learned.

    After that just program. Get yourself an idea and start on realizing it. Within this process you will learn new things and get used to the programming language :)
    That's how I started :)

    Well there's currently two games I've worked on on Steam Greenlight, ones called Resynth and another is called Dimension Jump, the latter I only did the music for, the former I did all the sound stuff :)

    Also if you happen to be coming to PAX AU you might find me if you locate a game called Putty Pals which will be in the Indie Arcade, I did the music and sound for that one!

    In terms of my PAX game from last year it kinda fizzled out because our programmers all got full time work and our modellers were pretty hard to deal with...I could get back into contact with them and maybe we could upload it somewhere but that might be a bit of a wait haha

    If you just wanna hear some of my music you can go to soundcloud.com/sound-conclusion though :)

    Sadly that's a no for pax :/ quite litteraly the other side of the world for me:sweat_smile:

    That's kinda on how many upvotes it gets! It's at PAX too and they're still working on it in particular a level building feature, but I haven't heard from them in a few weeks as they've been super busy...never found out if my level completion sounds were what they wanted :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    I feel ya hahaha, we're pretty far away from...uh...everywhere. It's a miracle we even get stuff here haha[/QUOTE]

    you're welcome! If you have any questions or problems with C++, just message me :) I'm always happy to help!

    @ThirdDegreePun just went through your soundcloud. Awesome work, I really like it :)

    aww thanks that means a lot :) I have a bunch of tracks queued up for one of the games I've worked on ready to release but I want to match that up with an appropriate time for the group :) Can give you a secret link to listen to one if you want maybe ;) DM me if you're interested!

    To learn programming on myself, or to wait a half year but learn the basics good and have good a fundamental knowledge of programming.? (Going to study IT next year)

    Learned C# first since the software devs at my work said it's the easiest language to learn when you're starting out. Also know javascript and lua but C# is my favourite out of those. Would really like to learn C++ if I just had the time.

    Now I am learning C# in my university, and have to learn Java for my final year project.
    Learning 2 in one time makes me cannot handle them but luckily got my friends who are good in C# and Java help me a lot.
