I find it quite stupid that so many schools teach Turing when it is clearly ass. It is just such a crappy programming language. I think that Programming classes should start with a good programming language like C++ or Java, which are actual programs you can use in real life if you go onto CompSci jobs.

turing all the way!!

turing is taught in schools not because it is powerful but because it is a good programming language to learn first. That is, its fairly simple. that's your problem, but its not a problem for gr 9's Razz

there is a rumor at my school that we are going to switch from learning Turing to learning java.

that would be sweet, but I think only the gr 11 and up compsci courses should learn java.

i hate to flame you but , any school that would teach c++ first in theade nine i think would be retarded ,why would you torture the students , and they would never be able to find there errors , do you even knowhow to code in c++ , becuase wit han attitude like that i dont think you undestand what turing is for , is says at holtsoft , " This is not a commercial laguages " and i s implemented for learning puproses only

there are over 100+ programming languages there , all youhave done is listed some of the few that are most used , i use BASIC ( BLitz to be exact ) , how can you put turing against VB , thats just totally unfair comparison Shocked Shocked but if i were to vote it would be for BASIC

the poll is fine.. if you don't think that the best is up there don't vote for one and say what you think is best... or either vote for the best one up there but say what you think is really the best.

Visual Basic is still a language of sorts. W/e VB kicks ass.

I don't think it makes any sense to even compare them. VB is for making applications, PHP is for web development.
