    Default How did u learn each coding language?

    Ok how did everyone learn all the languages. I'm learning c++ in a class so I know a little of that. I'm trying to teach myself php. I know html. But It seems everyone else knows like 20 different programming languages. Where did u guys start...

    I think you're getting too far ahead of yourself. Before you attempt to learn a programming language, you need to learn the difference between words and letters.

    Take a class, learn basic coding standards, read other peoples source (don't just copy and paste or you won't learn.), write your own programs that are different or better from the source code you studied, using concepts and api calls that you learned by reading.

    As I said... You need to learn to be able to understand basic concepts. Code flow etc... Just knowing one language will only hurt you. You need to have the ability to understand many syntaxes and learn new ones. Its the best way.

    Wow, so those of us who know no languages at all are better off than those who know a single language? You're quite a genius. We all expect to see you receive the Nobel Prize soon enough.

    I just had sex with a female programmer, and got her skills by osmosis.

    I didn't learn all the languages. Still trying...

    I learned a few of them though, if you'd care to be specific I might be able to (not) help some more.

    That must only work one way - my girl can't code ;)

    Once you learn 2-3 languages well, you see the differences and similarities and can look for them in languages of the same class. You could study programming languages in general (there are pure mathematical theorems regarding programming languages) but that definetly the hard way to do it. Try learning 2 object oriented languages (C++ and Java for example) and one scripting language (Perl, Python etc'). Once you do the rest will come easier (with some exceptions, i.e ASM)

    I'm sorry, I am not fluent in idiot-speak. You'll have to translate your incomprehensible pile of **** into English in order to conform with the rules.

    I missed the part where I'm crying...?
    I was just telling you how nickolay, despite all of his exposure to it, can not yet speak idiot fluently. I'm trying to teach him, but it's very difficult to understand. Now I'm going to post something ON TOPIC. Maybe you should follow in my footsteps.

    I learned some c++ from school.

    roflmao, holy ****, nickolay just caused me to bust a gut. Funniest ****. Evar.

    And bulk, if you nailed a hot programmer chick, you didn't get hacking skillz0r via osmosis, you just got an STD :(
