Computer coding

  1. Oct 1, 2008 #1
    is there any place i could go thats good to learn computer programming? i want to learn how to make websites because even though im only about 14 i know i want to be in some type of education. Preferably math or science. I have a general love for computers and love to make websites. But i can only do that little bit that they show you how to do, which is adding texts and pictures. Can sombody show me or give me a goood tutorial learning site for the basics of Html, Php, or java coding???

    Bruce Eckel's books are a good introduction to programming and Java (and are available online for free http://www.mindview.net/Books/TIJ/)

    A simpler langauge to begin with might be Javascript. It runs inside the webbrowser so you can easily see what it is doing, but is a real programming language.

    ps. There is no real connection between Java and JavaScript btw - it's just amarketing thing.

    buy a coding book!!!
    if you want to make websites, learn CSS and JavaScript, wc3 schools (google it) is good for online tutorials!

    have fun
