Hey everyone..

I recently joined this group and I was wondering... I joined this group
about 2 days ago and i started javascript right when i start, but after
2 days, i've learn all the basics etc... Then just out of curiousity i
looked at a C++ tutorial, and i noticed its not much different, just
written differently ... the commands and functions are differ but the
structure is almost the same..

I was wondering if it would be a better idea for me to start working on
C++ and leave javascript alone for a while, then after i become more
advanced w/ c++ i can go back to javascript... since javascript is like
the most basic language, except for html..

what do you think?!?

O and one more thing... I cant really learn C++ at school cause we dont
have linux, but i have it at home so maybe while at school i could do
Javascript and at Home i can do C++?

I don't see why not. If you make sure you know the difference
and see the boundaries (so you don't confuse the two), you should
be able to learn them simultaneously.

Javascript is absolutely nothing like C++. Your knowledge of both must
be rather rudimentary after only a few days. Don't be misled by
superficial similarities of syntax.

You'll learn more programming techniques and a more useful language by
learning C++. You sound quite confident so I would go for the more
difficult language, namely C++.

Why do think you need linux to learn C++? It's not true, you can learn
C++ on Windows or MacOS.

Depends on what you are looking to do. JS is generally more
web-browser-oriented, while C++ general ly speaking deals more with
stand-alone applications.

i would refrain from learning javascript and c++ in parallel if this is
your first excurse into programming languages.
while looking quite similar in many aspects the fundamental differences
are quite big: loose typing vs strict typing, automatic early and late
binding vs manual binding, dynamic model vs strong expressiveness and
so on.
what i mean is, learning both languages at once might teach you to
program in both, but in neither of them very well. i would focus on one
first and after being firm with the underlying concepts, move to the
second.
