Second programming language...

Hello guys, right, I learned C++ during the last year and now I think it's time to learn a second language.

I've been programming simple console applications and even some games with SFML during this time.

 

Now, I think I should learn a second programming language and I am thinking between learning HTML5 (Javascript), Python, C# or another.

 

What do you guys recommend, what is good for a 14 years old programmer to learn to get better at coding ?

You might as well learn a functional language to expand your horizons. I learned F# for a few months and it really opened my eyes to other styles of programming.

Oh, my bad. I interpreted "14 years programmer" as programming for 14 years, not 14 years old. Yeah, functional programming might be a bit premature.

After reading through some of your previous post, you have already started discussions on this topic and told us you had started learning HTML5/JS.

 

What more are you gaining by starting a new thread? Is there anything in specific you want advise on that wasn't covered in the last thread?

 

EDITED: You have also mentioned you dabbled in Python before C++ and you gave someone advise on a C# book and told them you learnt alot by reading it. Now your asking if you should learn C#? Make up your mind, stop wasting peoples time and stick with a language.

 

You are 14 years old, I wouldn't have recommended starting with a language like C++ but if you are most comfortable with it, why change now?

Why learn only one or two? Dabble in it all, work out what you like about each. It will all make you a better programmer in the end (and it sounds like you have plenty of years ahead of you yet). Btw I'm coming from the opposite end with 14 years OF commercial programming experience - hmm been a long time since I was 14 smile.png

Besides, C# gets you close enough to functional programming, without going full weirdo.

Bad advice for now. Focus, focus, focus. Yes, eventually learn as many as you can/need. For now though, focus your efforts as much as possible.
