Re: Top 10 Programming Languages
I know most of you never even heard of filePro from fptech.com.
If you want to learn programming, without all the heavy lifting, (coding screens, reports and processes)
download the free trial of filepro and spend 1 hour with it.
In that time, a beginner will learn about files, fields, creating screens and report and if you want to write something simple like an address book, you can write the whole thing in under 5 minutes once you spend the hour learning the basics of filePro and minipulating data.
I don't think there is any other language or database that you can make that statement with.
BTW, filePro is written in C so it runs native on all the linus.unix servers.
you can play with the Windows version, but the WOW comes in when you run 40 or 50 users on single server, with 4 GB of memory and it just flies!
Java not going anywhere, with AJAX, for the WEB to DATABASE connection. Love It!
Same for C++, everything Linus/Unix loves C.
So, I would teach on filePro, so novices can grasp the concepts of data, files, fields, etc.
Then move on to the the tougher languages. Need to start somewhere, I cant think of anything easier.
If you don't believe me, take a few minutes, check out their site fptech.com and try it for yourself.
I personally don't believe anything I have not tried myself. so I put you all to the chalange to give it a try and let me know what you think.
If you do, I promise you will thank me and hate me at the same time, because you will still have to code with your current tools, for weeks on a project, and you will know you can do it in filePro in just a few hours.
Let me know!
