How to Start Programming for beginners

Updated on April 26, 2009

How to Start with Programming?

The Best way to Start Programming is C, you can get a book for yourself of c ( I suggest Balaguruswamy because that helped me a lot), C should be the first language to learn because it builds a good base for your future programming language but currently its outdated also you may not be able to make the software in C which you want to because each language has its own limitations and Advantages.

In case you want to start with a powerful language(just in case you want to rush to it) then start with c++.

you'll need a compiler to run the program in both c and c++

Google for turbo c, you'll find this easily on the web and start coding . . . .  :)

      Surely, if u are a new programmer my frank and honest suggestion is starting with "VB .Net". It just helps u with simple syntaxes as we speak daily english.

      22 is good. some well known ethical hackers started doing hacking since they were its good.

      you get Graduation when you are 21 however post graduation you can get after or at age of 23. so 22 is not late.

      thanks for commenting.

      Cheers !

      Balaguruswamy did helped me a lot and if that doesn't work for you i m sure this will, "Let us C" with Kanetkar, this is like 'For Dummies' this makes it so damn simple u'll love it, Balaguruswamy tries to cover more things n Kanetkar tries to make it as easier as it could be, I would say dont go for any other language now first do C, u'll surely b a Good Programmer, But step-by-step Brother
