    Evening all. So this is the situation. Ive been tinkering with pc's for quite some time now, always fiddling with this and that. Changing settings galore and tweaking everything known to mankind. Im sure you know what i mean. :)

    Well now i feel like challenging myself a bit and thought i might try and learn a bit of programming. Purely as a challenge for my brain and as a bit of a hobbie. I would really appreciate any thoughts or suggestions as to a good starting point for my programming adventure. :D:D

    If Demonoid was still up, they have a really good group of Powershell Videos (CBT), but until then you can find about 3-4 good PDF's at here

    If you want to mess around with an IDE try PrimalForms. It has regular object browser just like VB, so even .NET types can pick it up fast.

    Wikipedia has some good basic info on the capabilities.

    Alex, did you get anywhere with Powershell, I sick of tired for being the only Powershell Guy around.

    Maybe I could start a How To Powershell thread and teach people the basics. Gets them more interested that way.

    Maybe vb script and WMI is a good way to start. If you're familiar with a bit of networking and Windows Server Editions, it's something to learn to get the hang of things. It's similar to vb, but leaning more to logonscripts and remote administration as it's purposes.

    If you get to know your way around those things, then vb, c# and java will be rather easily learned. You need to be familiar with setting up a dc with ad though.

    Java , How can we forget that

    So, I want that you can get yourself to one of the most powerful programming languages, I m taking about Java.

    Why java? Its widely established now, more over we can see that How Java is Empowering Most of the Technologies Today.

    Although languages C , CPP , VB.net etc are always very interesting.

    If Internet interest you, why not Web designing?

    You can go for web designing, starting from HTML, then, playing with CSS & then to more advanced ones.

    HTML is very easy to learn. Check out W3Schools to start with. I think this will be quite interesting.
