    I have had quite a few messages on discord recently about programming and where it is best to start. So I thought I would make a quick thread explaining what the main programming languages people learn and what they’re used for. I’m not going to tell you which ones you should start with as everyone are different in how they want to learn things because some languages are a lot more complex than others. There are so many different programming languages and frameworks out there it can be hard to choose which one is best for you to achieve your end goal. Some of the most common languages are: HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) Javascript PhP Python Java C++ I myself started with HTML/CSS then moved onto Javascript to be able to create bukkit plugins. I then lost interested with plugins and decided to focus more on front end web development. To start with you need to ask yourself why do you want to start programming and what sort of projects do you want to start doing. This then will ultimately decide which language is for you. So let’s jump straight in! Python Python seems to be the language a lot of people starting out in programming start off with. This is because it’s a rather simple language, fun and you don’t need to worry about strict syntax rules. School’s especially love it. Python reads like normal English so there is no need to worry about trying to decode your code to make it make sense. Python is ideal for web development; graphic user interfaces (GUIs) and software development. In fact Python was used to create YouTube, Instagram and Spotify. C# Known as C Sharp, C# is apart of the ‘C’ Programming Family which is a general purpose language. Learning ‘C’ is one of the more difficult languages due to most other languages are implemented into it. Once you learn ‘C’ it’s a lot easier to learn C# and C++. Java Java is an object-oriented and feature-heavy programming language that’s in high demand. It’s been built under the premise of “Write once, run anywhere,” meaning that it can be written on any device and work cross-platform. It’s often used in Android and iOS app development and forms the bases of the Android operating system. Top employers for Java include Amazon, Ebay and IBM. While it may not be as easy to pick up as Python, Java is a high-level language, and so it’s still relatively beginner-friendly. However, it has a slow startup and will take beginners much longer to deploy their first project. JavaScript JavaScript is another very popular programming language. Websites such as Twitter, Google, Spotify and Facebook use JavaScript. It is a must have when creating interactive website because it communicates extremely well with HTML and CSS. Therefore, it makes it essential for front-end development and consumer-facing websites. Additionally, because of JavaScript’s popularity it’s becoming a leading backbone in frameworks such as Angular, Protractor and NodeJS. One of the great things about JavaScript is that you don’t need to install anything as it’s built into browsers. Like Java, JavaScript isn’t as easy to learn as Python. Ruby Ruby is very similar to Python in that it’s an easier language to learn, easier to read, you don’t need to know any programming vocabulary to learn it nor do you need any experience. Ruby is becoming ever more popular because of a full-stack framework called Ruby on Rails. Airbnb, Groupon, Hulu and Soundcloud are built with Ruby on Rails. HTML/CSS Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications. With Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and JavaScript, it forms a base of technologies for the World Wide Web. Most people have heard of HTML/CSS so I’m not really going to explain what its uses are. Other If you’re after learning a specific language to do specific things, see the below a list of common languages for development. Operating Systems iOS -> Swift or Objective-C. macOS -> Objective-C or Swift Windows -> C# Android -> Java. The C++ language can be used for some applications on all these platforms. Frameworks ElectronJS – Developed by GitHub this language encompasses Node.JS and Chromium for cross platform desktop development. Software that uses ElectronJS includes Discord, Microsoft VS Code, Skype, Twitch.TV and WhatsApp. As it uses Chromium, which is the source code for Google Chrome, you are in theory creating a Chrome based application. Angular, formally AngularJS – Is an open-source TypeScript framework created and maintained by Google. TypeScript being a superset to JavaScript but maintained by Microsoft. Angular is a modular based language which instead of running server side it runs client side so it is quicker and more responsive. Angular is by far my favourite framework and I know it is @Flaks too. A lot of our applications for Palace that are web based use or will be using Angular instead of PHP because Angular is easier to read and understand. There are many frameworks out there, these are 2 frameworks that are becoming ever so popular. Summary In this guide I have only listed a few languages and frameworks, there are hundreds more out there for you to discover and play around with. When I started learning I didn't know where to start until I started playing around with some and then deciding what one I wanted to focus on, which turned out to be HTML/CSS, and then process from there. If anyone has any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me on Discord or use the group!

    Hello all! As you can probably tell my name is whitbit0219 or you can just call me Whit. Back in 2015, I joined MCFantasy because I love anything to do with USO. I was a guest there for maybe two weeks and applied for staff. I, surprisingly, got accepted and became a tour guide (trainee equivalent). I worked there for maybe four months and was actually working with certain Palace staff members while I was there. I suddenly stopped playing Minecraft altogether after that and went on with my life. Four years later, I got another Minecraft account, having forgotten my information for the last, and tried finding MCFantasy. I was not aware that MCFantasy had merged with MCMagic to become Palace. Anyway, I joined and four months later, here I am. I got Noble about a week or two ago because I wanted to see the sneak peek of NewMK and see what the donator ranks had to offer. Then this past weekend I got honorable because I couldn't miss out on the Black Friday deal XD. Overall, my favorite thing about Palace is the community because everyone is nice and is always there if you need anything. Also, the creative server is amazing because you get to showcase your builds and get feedback in order to help you get better. A few things that I could talk for ages about is softball, USO, Disney, musicals, and traveling. If you see me around Palace, don't be afraid to say hi or whatever! P.S. I host Potato Jeopardy about once or twice a week with ItzPolarBear. If you're around on the creative server, you should join. It's really fun. Just do /plotwarp pjeopardy. Hope to see you there next time!
