    Alternative programming options for the Lounge

    Whilst VB.net C++, C# and F# all have discussions on the lounge Perhaps tutorials could be introduced to help novice programmers understand object oriented programming as the concepts can be hard to grasp. I am not convinced that the mentioned languages are suitable for tuition. I think that Python is more intuitive and that a discussion topic should be added to the lounge.

    Who knows, god forbid, that this might lead to the uptake of Java, a truly open source language.

    Keep on cutting the code.

    A fundamental question you need to ask is do you want to learn to program or learn a language?

    If its the former then the language for the most part is irrelevant. You need to undertsand the basic programming techniques which for the most part carry across a great array of languages. E.g. sequence, selection and iteration. The concept of arrays.... etc

    Learning rigorous programming techniques are essential for all programming languages. A good place to start is codecademy and probably the best one to start with is Python.


    https://www.codecademy.com/

    It introduces an introduction to coding for several languages and then progressing to more advanced levels
