To move from PHP to C# or C++?

Hi folks,

I've been working with PHP for over 2 years now, and I'm looking to expand my knowledge into the C realm.

However, I have no previous experience with C/C++ (well, unless you count some of the PHP syntax similarities ).

Now, I'm clueless as to which would be the smarter option: Work in C++ first, and then proceed to C#, or start straight on C#. All I know is I want to start work in one of these two languages.

I was hoping one of you guys could offer some advice that can make life easier in the long term, or share some experience as to which you would recommend before I dive in headfirst.

Thanks,
Jeb.

BTW: I'll be sticking around here for quite a while I think....this seems to be a great community with a lot of people who know their stuff

Go right to c#, if thats what you want, remember it's MS only.

Jeb,

It's a tough decision... I would be debating that idea as well... I just started my C++ class, and I find it very similar to PHP, as well as Java...

I do know that moving from Java to C# is a fairly simple process, as the concepts are alike.

If you're looking to go more into windows programming, or even any type of Microsoft technologies (.NET), I would suggest moving onto C#... You can do more with it when it comes to internet technologies...

If anyone else has any thoughts, please let us know... I'm curious as well!

Thanks folks.

The biggest concern I had was that learning to similarly structured languages at once could actually make things harder than easier. Many people have said that C# is easier when you have a C/C++ background, and I think they would be right (obviously).

I decided I'll move straight onto C#, and if necessary I can throw a bit of C++ in there later....however I don't think that will be happening anytime soon (if at all).

Well, time to start I guess

I'd still love to hear any other comments you've got, or suggestions you could make!

Thanks again,
-Jeb.
