Best Programming Languages Beginners Should Learn
Before you learn a language, start with 'drag and drop' programming. Once you have the hang of Javascript, try playing with Ruby and Ruby on Rails. Ruby on Rails is a great tool that can help you with the backend aspect of your programming. Although Ruby and Ruby on Rails have similar names, there's actually an important difference. Ruby is a scripting language, just like Python, but Ruby on Rails is a Web app framework built on Ruby. In other words, Ruby is the language, while Ruby on Rails is a tool that makes it easy to use the Ruby language to build websites. What makes Ruby and Ruby on Rails so attractive, according to Partovi, is that there's very little prototyping involved. While HTML isn't a programming language in the sense that Python, Ruby, and Javascript are, you still need it to build a website.
