It is all my school offers for CS as well.

That's exactly why I'm not taking it.

I used to be a Java hater. I still dislike the Java language, but the JVM simply rocks.

In my sophomore year in HS, I decided to try out a programming class on Florida Virtual Schools (online classes).

The language was QBasic.

I dropped the class ASAP.

I fail to see the point in teaching languages like Visual Basic or C# because once you start to do anything outside of Windows, you're ****ed.

lol.

I honestly don't expect to get much use out of the language itself, I just want to use it as a launchpad into other languages. Most likely Python, but we'll see. I want a flexible language that can be used cross-platform for simple tasks. I figure if I learn the basics in this class I will be fine to teach myself the syntax of other languages.

I definitely have NO intention of becoming dependent on MS and Visual Studio. Ugh. I hate that my school is a .NET whore.

Cool, I am learning basic right now and I know a little Java. Can I program PCBs with basic?

Just started my first programming class in school. For some reason, they're making us learn ActionScript. I'm definitely not having too much fun, but I'm sure I will once I start getting used to the whole programming thing...

I already gave you a list of libraries to use to do it in Python

Sort of. If you're talking about programming microcontrollers, then yes. You don't actually program PCBs in the traditional sense of programming.

If you're just trying to crank off a quick Windows application, C# is fantastic. Maybe not as fast as it could be, but development is fast and easy, in my experience.

A guy I know has been using Swordfish BASIC for PIC microcontrollers for a while now, he seems quite enamored with it. I've never tried it, but you might want to give it a look. Ultimately I'd suggest you go with C or assembly for microcontrollers though.

Anyone here have experience with programing hacks (aka client hooks)? I've been making hacks for the past 4 years. I had c++ programming knowledge since I was 13 and began playing CS 1.6 at 16, so I kinda put the two together when I discovered that people were using hacks. Now I focus mainly on CS:S and COD4. I've sold private cheats that are still undetected and made thousands of dollars from it. I think its a pretty rewarding hobby.
