Michael: Jodie, how's my schedule look for today? Jodie: You've got a conference and dinner party at the Japanese Embassy regarding wildlife protection. Michael: Oh, yeah...sorry, but I'll have to cancel that. I'm heading out to save America!
HTML, JAVA, PHP, Visual Basic, BASIC, DarkBASIC are all good compiling languages to start with. They are all fairly logical and easy to use. They're a really good framework to see and understand what goes into programming. They demand a lot less work and planning than other languages, in my opinion. I've tried to teach myself more difficult languages like C++ and what not, but I'll wait until next year for college to help me wrap my head around those ideas.
