I want to get back into Programming – But What?

by Matt on November 20, 2008

I really want to expand and learn something new.  I have done Visual Basic, C, C++, COBOL 74, and another one that slips my mind at the moment.  I really want to try something new and exciting.  I want to specifically learn a web language.  I have done some mild PHP but I really want to try something new.

Here are the languages that I am contemplating:

  • Adobe AIR
  • C#
  • JAVA
  • VB.NET
  • Python

I know I have added quite a few to the list.  I know AIR is going places, but the .NET packages seem good.  I guess I am looking for thoughts and ideas.  What do you use?

I really want to pick something that has a good knowledge base behind it and that has some good resources for learning and development.
