If you need any help to do with programming. Post it here on the thread, and I will reply to all of you. If you are facing a bug, or need advise on anything post it.

I know the following languages fairly well: VB.NET, C#, Java. I also know SQL, Regular Expressions and good knowledge in Object Oriented programming and many more.

Ask away people.

Depends on what your goals are. What are your goals? What do you want to gain from programming? And why do you want to learn the language? Do you just want to start programming as a hobby, or do you need to learn a language for academic reasons?

The point is that with two years of experience and such a lack of specialism (C# and PHP) I have sincere doubts that you can realistically help "all who need help with programming."

This is not an attack on your personally but bad advice is like a plague in places like this so if you are going to profess to be so proficient you had better have the mettle to back it up.

I may not be able to help everyone, but I'd be able to help the majority on this forums. Since the majority are just college/school students. Don't underestimate me because of my years of experience. I don't give bad programming advice, I have studied these things, I've been teaching programming to other people my own age and even older. If I am not sure on anything, I simply will not advice it in the first place.

Maybe. I suppose we will find out soon enough.

Academic reasons for when I choose computer science next year during A-Levels. I want to be a game Dev when I'm older. I'm trying to get a basic understanding which will help me next year and also assist me when I try to make my own games during some of my free time.

I don't think you can do Computer Science at a Level, that's something you do in University.. I think you mean computing.

Anyway, if you're taking a course that requires you to programming. I highly stress you give your self a head start by learning programming before hand, you will find life so much easier. And doing makes you that A* student. Depending on how much you enjoy programming.

I am not a games developer so the advise I would give you will not be so great. But what I do know is that developers use game engines to develop games. You could use Unity3D to develop games using the C# programming language. I know a few game devs that have created some really nice games with it. You could try C# for that.

I have never programmed in python so I don't know. I heard python is very good language for a beginner.

I'm afraid since this is not my field of expertise, I can't give you any more substantial advise. I do recommend you research this thoroughly using Google. I also recommend you give your self a head start on programming before you start your academic course.

Alright, thanks. I didn't know about C# so I guess i'll see if I can learn that. Much appreciated!

You can do CompSci from GCSE onwards as of last year, its replacing the ICT courses offered in Secondary Education.

Thank God. The ICT courses offered in secondary school where just terrible. Programming is where the fun is.

I like the capitalised "FREE". I was concerned that you were going to be sending out invoices via private message until I saw that.

No problem, you can also look into Unreal Engine 4 which is done in C++. But I would not recommend C++ as a beginners language.

I can write HTML, CSS, PHP and Python, dabble in SQL, and do lots of uncategorised computerry stuff. However, I'm too scared to put it to use.

I'd really like to build a website/business, but I'm paranoid about data security. How secure is 'secure'? So many sites are getting hacked nowadays I'm paranoid about security and vulnerabilities. We've witnessed massive brands suffer data breaches, so what chance does a 16 year old stand in terms of security when multi-million pound companies are tripping up? They have their expensive solutions to prevent hacking, but I have.... just me. :confused:

I often contemplate whether I'm experienced enough to build something like this, but on the whole I think I am.

What would you recommend? What is your opinion on this?

So long as I follow good practices (use PDO, Bcrypt, etc. when storing data), could much go wrong? Any other practices you'd recommend?
