Community Question

As I near the completion of my little B9 I am contemplating programming. While the EZ-B is very robust for non-programmers, there is so much more I can do with code. My problem is I don't know any code. So as a total beginner, which should I use? VB, C#, C++ I just don't know which would be easiest for my old brain to wrap to itself around. Any suggestions out there? Whichever seems the best I will get a "Dummies" book to start learning.

At the risk of showing my age... It's been eons since I worked with Fortran and assembly. I am now learning a new language... For me it's C#. Unlike DJ, I always hated coding. My Dad, a Mainframe programmer was always trying to get me to change to the "dark side" of computer networks, so when my wife gave me a C# manual for Christmas he was rolling on the floor laughing!

Really most coding is really nice to work with now a days. Assembly, C, Verilog, VHDL, C# and Labview all are the main ones I have worked with. I have gandard at Python but have yet to dive in. I have also helped a friend understand some routines in java. However I don't really build my code in nice general structure, just quick and in a working manner.

How about we migrate back to DOS :)

I picked up Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 24hrs.

I'll check around for a C# book next trip to chapters.

The EZ-SDK includes LOTS of examples. You can learn C# really easily by looking at my examples.

The most challenging part (if you have a basic understanding of programming) is learning Visual Studio. For example, how to configure and compile. Also what all the files are... And the difference between them.
