My first programming experience was with QBASIC aka QuickBasic. Now I am taking a class in VB and its a cake walk. I do prefer to code using more of a command method rather than a toolbar based method.

QB allowed me to get the feel for input, output, logic, and other basic programming concepts. But I am kind of new to it as well, so maybe someone else has a better suggestion.

Most of the industry standard languages today are all essentially variants on C.

C, C++, Java and C# are all good places to start.

After that, maybe Perl, Python, maybe assembly.
