  3. Where do I start to learn how to program?
1 year ago#1
Hi there,

I'm a senior in highschool, and I would like to explore programming. However, I'm not sure where to start. I honestly have zero experience, and want to start from the very beginning. What tools do I need and what should be the first thing I do?

Thank you.

Well, first you have to choose a language to start with. I started with C/C++, but Java is a good language to start with, too. Tutorials can be found here: http://www.cprogramming.com/

I recommend Eclipse as a Java IDE/compiler (download links are on the right side of the page). http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-standard-431/keplersr1

Ah, thanks 19. I think I'll start with Java, I have a friend who knows some. Anyways, what is a compiler exactly and what does it do?

A compiler turns the code you wrote into a program. Usually this is an exe file, though Java is a big exception.

An IDE is a tool that makes it easier to write, debug, and compile code.

I think you really gotta read/watch a lot of stuff to have your questions answered. This is an awesome resource: http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-00sc-introduction-to-computer-science-and-programming-spring-2011/
