Start with web program before sinking to app based program.

No, just... Stop learning pascal, it will not help you. Try to learn the programming basics and later go to Python or C++, but no Pascal... The percentilles of the current usage of popular languages: Based on: 44.7% recommended Python 16.5% recommended C 12.7% recommended Java 7.9% recommended HTML 6.9% recommended C++ 6.2% thought it doesn't really matter which language you start with.

Who in their right mind will teach Pascal these days? Your teacher should get with the times.

I suggest starting on the Web Developer track to get a base understanding. Spend a few weeks mastering HTML and CSS to start :)

W3schools is a good website where i started to learn enthusiastically...i recommend u to take a look ...

It depends on what you want to do with programming; if you're into game dev try C# but I honestly, recommend python because it's way much easier; but if you're into web development then the path is a bit long, start with HTML Wich is not a programming language but it's a basic knowledge you must learn, then CSS, then JS,... if you're into software development then it's Java and kotlin,.. but if you're into electronics then you must learn C and C++ and maybe python as well I hope this was helpful enough :) and good luck in your journey

Patrick Irungu I recommend learning C before C++. It's because C++ has a lot more complicated features and you may not be able to keep up with it as a beginner. C, however, is simple and all fundementals of C can be applied to C++. As for C++ being C, but with more features was somewhat true in the past. However, over the years, it has become its own language.

Try learning C++ and C

Dylan Baker it does not take few weeks to master HTML and CSS, I understand people consider HTML and CSS easy compared to real languages, but its just impossible to master anything in just few weeks, maybe learn the basics yes, but not master, especially CSS, there is a reason this language has become a meme.

Ángel I wish I could downvote more than 100 times ... 😭😂

In as much as you are a beginner, the bulk of the entire decision about what stack to start with still depends on you. What I mean is, you have to decide the aspect of programming that interests you the most. There are plenty of them: front end web development, backend web development, data science, Machine Learning, Artificial intelligence, Embedded systems programming etc and then, start learning the required languages. Once you have mastered the stack, switching to another stack is easy.

Would you help me with programming basics?

Anyway what are you studying?

Thank you so much GAYATHRI S Dylan Baker

I recommend u to start with web html,css or python I think this will defintely motivate you nd help u throught out ur learning😊😊

I think that you should use some web-based website, like SoloLearn, to teach you programming. The reason you shouldn't learn Pascal is because it doesn't seem beginner-friendly, nor will it get you anywhere because it's not commonly used anymore.

You're welcome!

I said what, not if you are doing it. I mean if you are studying it in a university or something because you said that who is teaching pascal to you is a teacher. Knowing that could help people to advise you better.
