If you were to focus all your energies on one computer language now, what would it be? Do you think it will make your life better if you use your selected language wholly? What is it that is in this language that you chose it as your primary computer language? I'm a C language programmer. Did I make the right choice/focus?

Well, the danger in focusing on a single programming language is that it is highly possible that it'll be replaced by a newer programming language that is better or more popular in some way. IMO, it is better to specialise in more than 1 programming language. I would rather be fairly good in a couple of languages than be excellent in one, given that the tech industry tends to evolve quite fast.

We two are the same, I am a C programmer too. I guess you made the right choice. I've made discussions asking people if C is a good programming language. Guess what, majority of the responses that I got said that C is indeed a good programming language. But if I were to choose a programming language, it would be definitely assembly language.Assembly really caught my attention but I find it really hard especially that my teacher is not that good in teaching. I hope I would be able to master assembly language. Well, good luck on your C programming career and take care.

Thanks for that. Anyways good thing I have found someone who shares the same specialty or interest here. I'm also currently trying to master assembly language which they push on as being very strong and useful in the computer industry. Well, I hope you can learn that part without your teachers aid. I believe you could do good in it. Good luck to the both of us. May our careers flourish and make us rich. I know you'll agree.

It is not possible to serve every thing learning a single language. But to make a good base you have dome good learning C, it is also my favourite.I am a C/C++ programmers (hobbyist at this moment), I am learning graphics programming with DirectX and C++. But I have find it very easier when I try to learn other languages like C# and PHP. C/C++ is best for foundation and you can also do every thing with it but you have to hard coder to serve your purposes.

So will C help me learn more complicated languages? C is good, very good they say. And I believe them. So if I get good at C, does this mean I would learn other languages fast? I'd love to learn C++ and C# but can't figure out the differences between the three...

C/C++ is like the mother of all programming language. C++ is also platform independent. That is you can write a program that will run both on Windows and Linux, although you have to compile it for each OS versions. C# is only Microsoft specific at this moment. So I would suggest you to learn and master in C/C++ then extend your knowledge to C# or any other language that serves your purposes.

Well C is actually the best: 1. readability -even noob programmers can read the syntax of your code. 2. writability -even your friend writes the first part of a program coded in c, you can easily edit or modify the code without asking help from your friend. 3. reliability -c can handle errors like this: main() { int x,y; while (x-1) { y=y/x; /*what will happend if x reaches 0*/ } return 0; }

Thanks for citing the major reasons why C can be considered the best! As a C programmer, I truly agree with you. Thank you for giving light on this topic. Welcome to this site. :D

hello nowday C and C++ are old stuffs as they say, we agree that it's the mother language :)) i don't have any doubt in that, but we are in 2008, lot of technologies appear, New internet Marketing tricks... and all Turne about the Web Developement and Ways to improve a Services Provided by companies. So my opinion, if i don't say what im doing now.. :) is Focusing ma self at the PHP/Asp.net and so on.. all what have a Relation with web Developement and new technologies such Ajax for exemple... which is the most needed in the Market. Anyway it's still my own opinion :) and nowday, the Web is what the Companies are in a need For.

I think java is the best programming language.Java is system independent,So the.class files can be executed on any computer having different operating system and processor.It is more suitable for internet.Although Java has all the concepts of C language, java is more reliable because C language is system dependent and these C programs can be executed only on those computers where they have been actually developed.

Oh so Java is more useful? I see, we'll see more comments and I'll get back to this later. C and Java are really rivals, I believe.

I am also a C language programmer and I love it.. One of my teachers said that C is the only high / middle level language that can approach assembly language.. well, i also love assembly language but it is a bit complicated compared to C.. With C you can really learn how to create good algorithms.. I had experience learning JAVA when i was in 2nd year high school and i didn't really understood it.. When i came to college and was introduced to C by our teacher and it was easy to understand compared to JAVA..

Hi friend, you are right. If you ask me, you took the right decision. We always select what we likes or suit to our heart. I know some select their career with the advice and stubborn of parents or guardians.I never support it or appreciate.we must select

look friend there is no such best programming languague all the languages are usefull in thier own way. the best language can decided by the project in which it can be applied depending on its applications.
