    what scripting language should I use?

    Hey guys!
    I am new in this field and I need some info.
    I recently got my hands on a great book (Learning Web Design, Jennifer Robbins - I recomend it to any beginner), so I have learned a thing or two about html and css.
    Now I want to go ahead and study a little scripting. Where should I start. I really can't understand the differences between JavaScript, PHP, and so on.
    Which scripting language should I start learning?
    If you can reffer me to some studying material it would be great
    Thanks

    If general knowledge about scripting is what you're after, I would recommend the online tutorials at w3schools. Their tutorials tell you what each scripting language is, what it's used for and how to use it, plus they give examples of uses. Once you have gained this general knowledge, you will probably want to delve deeper into one or more scripting languages. When you get ready to take that step, I'm sure we can help you with book recommendations or additional resources.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi vasile,

    Depends what kind of programming you want to do. For website programming I'd pick PHP and then javascript.
    For desktop and application programming I'd pick c++.
    JAVA I'd place somewhere between the two.

    Hi,
    PHP is good for all level personnels, however, if you get into deep, you will find that there is no software to manage PHP as visually.. than there comes something called ASP.net { yes, you got it right, Microsoft } ; it has Microsoft's best produced IDE software Visual web developer...this can really help you design and code stunning sites, which is never possible in PHP untill you are damn good coder and can write code and correct errors without any headaches...
