lilyafaten: Exactly, there are scripting languages like dreamweaver 8.1 that is more friendly since it incorporates php ,php.net, Asp.net, C++, etc and doesn't need much coding if u are a good interface designer, and if u don't know how to design, u code while it does d designing.

manny4life: I'm glad I stumbled on this thread, I've been confused on which route to go

I wanted to go for an IT Cert course in Database and compliment it with programming, but the courses are just too much and overwhelming. I'm literally confused and haven't made up my mind, but having seen this thread, this will shed more light. Hopefully.

BTW, on my own, I started out with Visual Basic, because it complements well with Advanced Excel features, and some Access queries.
yeah Visual basic...i wanted to start with this language but the latest ebook i downloaded is the one of Visual Basic 2012 for windows 8.its so amazing its features and all,contains how to download and install the visual studio but the quambs is that i don't wanna uninstall my Win7 now,please someone help me with a link to visual basic for windows 7 ebook and software itself,thank God am a Computer fanatic.

Learn and Practice Java online

I have found a new and useful website recently Which can help to learn [b]java and also for java practicing [/b]as a free user.

www.javalaunch.com

The tutorial is very nice and easy...but the site is in Beta version and under development.

i think you must use HTML and maybe CSS, then you can apply your python to that

oluwamitomisin:
I found this thread really interesting even before joining Nairaland.
I then started out with learning QBASIC as you suggest but ran into a complication- QBASIC is not running on my WINDOWS 7 PC. Any suggestion on fixing this? I have a tutorial website i am following already, but they seems to be using older versions of WINDOWS.
try and google out qbasic on windows 7. I jt downloaded one today and will try to get it to u if I av d chance. Its jt a small zip file.
