Programming Languages


Not sure if this should go under technology or general, but Im sure it will get sorted out. I want to get more in depth with computers, specifically modeling, animation, and programming. I know those are enormously broad categories but thats the extent of my forethought at the moment. I can take classes at the community college in modeling and animation but they dont have jack shit for programming, thus I am left to self-teach. I know only basic HTML and some Visual Basic (aka I can make a killer hangman game or blackjack, and thats about it) so where should I start? Ive been thinking java, but really Im in the dark on this one.
