I have an adult friend who wants to learn a computer language. It cannot be internet related. What would be the best one to learn? I want to get him a book for Christmas. I just need to know which programming language to get.
sort by best latest
Thank you very much
He is somewhere were the is no internet available. He has 4 years to learn something that he always wanted to learn instead of what he did do which was computer hardware. I was just shopping for his Xmas this year.
ahhh ok well Then C++ wold be a good choice as C++ is on every computer.
C++ is a good choice, especially the new C++11/14 standard. Although some other languages can be easier to learn and use (like Java or C#) I thinks that C++ gives more flexibility on the job market.
