I don't know Obj-C very well, but in my opinion, it would be better to learn an easier programming language BEFORE obj-c (like C or Java).


I'm going to go ahead here and point out that C is far more complicated than Obj-C.

I must be really dumb when it comes to Obj-C, because the basics of C were a lot easier to learn than the basics of Obj-C for me.  Of course, it might become way different when I actually delve really deep into the language, which I haven't done for either of those languages. 

@Gan well, I did use JEdit, which has syntax checking capabilities.  The Java compiler is also reasonably accurate at telling you where you've messed up.

Yeah, true.
JEdit sounds nice. I used Netbeans, very bland interface. Crashed quite a bit.

I use Eclipse for my Java developing needs. Very easy to use, customizable interface, really good error checking and much more.

I would like to personally thank everyone who has helped me so far. It's nice to have people to ask for problems.

I like to troubleshoot and I am having fun with this.
I have learned some stuff from you guys already.
Hopefully after Silver I will be able to move on to another language/program.

I plan to make a couple games in SC before I leave Wink

Any suggestions on a programming language to learn?


I suggest you take a course in programming at a nearby college, and learn whatever language the instructor is using, preferably something object-oriented. I just finished a course in basic problem solving using C#, and it was really good... not because of that particular language, but because of the fact that the concepts carry over to other languages.

Also, if you take a course at a college, the programming tools will probably be provided, so you won't have to worry about that. I was given free copies of several programs, including Visual Studio 2010, which is a very powerful all-in-one development environment.

Bottom line: it's much better to learn from a teacher, than to try to teach yourself!

Eh, I don't quite agree.
Of course, I taught myself.  Wink
