@Amrit, yes, I also learnt C after C++, C# and always recognized smth new or understood language better in different interpretations.

True. As I worked my way through the SL languages, each one got easier, because they have many concepts in common. The other side of the coin is that it can be hard to remember which syntax goes with which language :/ Now I'm concentrating on just one (Python) and re-doing all the lessons, using outside resources, writing code and making (hopefully) helpful comments and replies in the lessons, all of which helps the information stick in this elderly brain 😉

@Jonathan, C produces code that runs nearly as fast as code written in assembly language.That means that is fast compiling and economy the time. It is very important for big projects. Some examples of the use of C might be: Operating Systems Language Compilers Assemblers Text Editors Print Spoolers Network Drivers Modern Programs Data Bases Language Interpreters Utilities

@Odonkor, it depends on what do you want to do.

You're right, it made me remember that I studied HTML and didn't understand well. And when I started CSS things are making sense.. and re-read HTML and it works!! but @Puzic Ivan made me realize it. Thanks @Puzic Ivan!!😊

@EMMU, you can try to learn JavaScript, it will be useful for better assimilation of information

I think so you are right. I learnt Logo first and got a good idea of graphic manipulation. Then I learnt Basic and got an idea of Conditionals and loops. After that I could learn HTML, Java, C++, C#, JS, CSS, etc.

you are absolutely correct after learning C i came to understand the deep basics of programming

@Anwar, first PL depends on what do you want to do.

@Blair, try to start learning CSS3, SASS for webdev, by the way SASS is based on Ruby

There are levels of understanding. You will certainly never grok one language without taking a look at another. But you could know enough to do what you need to do with just one. My $0.02.

its absolutely ri8...U have to learn at least 2 programming lang to understood better one...is as follow: c,c++,gava or html,CSS,Js coz this languages somewhat depends on each other...for ex:if u done code in html then it will make better by CSS & JS...we can add many features on html coding.😊

the best part is that the more you learn the better you get even at languages totally new to you

I already knew c c# c++ but I wanted to learn Java. I was very confused by tutorials by others. I wouldn't have learned it without solo learn

@Marco, thank you a lot for appreciation!
