Well I am coming up to Java, and I suppose C and C++ through the back door.
The demand and interest for me to know programming languages is great. I do
not have the time to devote to take courses, but I am learning, at my own
pace, Javascript, Perl, and Tcl. Pretty soon, I will be able to learn
things like Java and C++ with much less difficulty. I am taking the novice
to scripter to programmer route. It seems very logical for me.
For anyone into Website design, Javascript is the greatest. And it also
pays off for HTML-based help.
