    So I am off to uni next year and I have little to no programming skills so I was wondering which program should I learn so I can at least know the basics before I go. I'm either studying Computer science or Artificial intelligence and robotics but I am taking the foundation year first so I can build my skills up so anyone got the questions.

    1)check with the university.
    2) most AI is done in a language called PROLOG however this uses such different concepts from traditional programming I would wait to be taught it.

    3) VISUAL STUDIO 2016 is a free IDE (integrated development environment) for many languages such as C, C# and C++, VB.net
    4) NETBEANS is a very good IDE for the Java programming Language. (do not use eclipse for java use NetBeans, this is because netbeans is more helpful).

    5) may I suggest as a start you use VB.net which is a fairly easy programming language to use.

    VB tutorial to help get you started. VB is good as it does some of the more complex back end items for you.
