    Learning a New Programming Language Part 1: Getting Started

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    Many Web hosts know PHP. There are some very good reasons for learning another language, however. This article series covers some of those reasons, and explains why learning a new programming language is not as hard as you might think.

    The act of learning is a funny thing. Like many pursuits, people might find it stimulating, beneficial, scary, boring, tedious or a combination of these. How you view the idea of learning something new depends on many things. Major factors include what you think you are (sometimes in contrast with what you really are) capable of, your motivation for learning and what you have already learned.

    Everyone also has a learning method with which they are most comfortable. Some excel in a classroom environment, others like to sit down with a book, still others learn by diving in feet first and just doing it, crashing and burning a few times until they get it right. For others it may be a combination of all these.

    If you find learning new things easy, and don't know what the big deal is, then this article may not be for you. However, if you have learned one language and want to learn another, but are unsure which one or have a little fear based on what you went through to learn the first one, read on.

    I can't hope to teach you programming in this article, so I'm hoping that you have some knowledge of what variables, loops, if constructs and functions are. What I do hope to do is ease any concerns you have about learning a new language and show you just how similar most languages are. Once you have learned one you will likely not have difficulty learning another given the proper information.
