While I don't think there is a single best language to learn I think picking something object-orientated would definitely be a good start. Languages such as C#, Java or C++ would all be good languages to learn although I'd recommend not learning C++ as a starting language despite it being the current industry standard for console games. Your best bet is probably going to be decide what type of platforms you'd like to program for then learn the language best suited to that platform.

It's really up to what you want to do. If you want to learn programming for programming's sake, maybe start with Java or C++. If you just want to piddle around and try making games or other interactive things for fun as a hobby, get a book on Actionscript (AS3/Flash) programming. If you want to program but not games in particular, look into web development. It can scale down a lot. For example, you can start with HTML/CSS and then get into server or database things.

If you want to make a career out of programming, Java or C++ should probably be where you start regardless of where you see yourself ending up.

hi friend, i know c and c++. but i never get a chance with these languages. now days java, vb, etc have good scope. that's why i think these languages are the best programming languages to learn. mainly java is the best.

Ajinkya, you "hijacked" a thread about "best programming languages" and turned it into "are there Masters programs."
Hijacking is not good manners. This thread was started over 6 months ago, so since the original poster has surely gotten his answer, this thread is closing.
Ajinkya, you should please start a new thread if you want to discuss masters programs.
