    Hey,

    I know nothing about Programming except some basic ideas about HTML. I'm interested in learning a programming language and any suggestions about which one should I start with ?

    Java is a good programming language to learn.

    I'd suggest Python. It's more high level language than Java. Python is quite easy to learn.

    I wouldn't recommend Python to a beginner. It doesn't have an easy syntax at all compared to the C-based languages. PHP and C# are excellent languages to begin with.

    It's just my opinion. From my point of view it has very simple syntax. But of course, it's up to you.

    Go for C++, not C. Stroustrup made C redundant.

    Look up Bjarne Stroustrup. He invented C++ at Bell labs in 1983 and was originally called "C with classes". He said that C++ should be the official revision of C since it's C with OO (object oriented) features and some other things like operator overloading and virtual functions.

    Learn C followed by C++

    Most programmers require basic C and C++ programming knowledge.

    I'd recommend skipping straight to C++, like I did.

    Hello,
    To begin with, you should first learn HTML, it is not an actual programming language - it's markup language, but the whole web stands on it. Any programming language you'll learn will actually generate HTML according to your script.

    Now on the topic:
    You should really first decide your sphere you want to be in: web or desktop programming.
    There is also another fresh category - app programming, for android, iOS, etc., but I have no experience with them.

    Web programming is very profitable at the moment and web-based business is getting really popular, if you are interested in web programming, you should consider learning PHP, which is one of the most popular, tho in my opinion not the best option for web programming. Another great option is .NET, which includes some awesome features like MVC3, Razor, etc.
    Ruby on Rails is getting more attention lately too.

    Desktop programming involves creation of desktop applications, games too. You should consider learning C++ for serious development, although if you had no experience in programming, a great option would be a simple Pascal (to learn only), Java, C#, maybe some Visual Basic.

    While C is a very good language and is the basis for many, it is not the father of all languages. Have you ever heard of FORTRAN and COBOL?

    That's cool, I studied that at Uni too. Although we also studied C# and C++ the others were pseudocode.

    I think you should study C++ first. When studying, try to understand the knowledge, if you don't, just accept as it is and keep reading. You will understand previous parts latter when you read latter parts. That's how it came to me when I first read C++. When you understand C++, it's much easier for you to study C.

    Python is also a great choice. It's very easy to code. You don't have to care much about problems that you'll face in C or C++. The great part is you can create your own game easily with Python. Hope this helps.
