In other words, I did learn, but I've never done anything too complex outside of one project where I received a lot of help from tutorials and examples.
Now, I have several small projects (very small) that have been running through my head for a while now, and it's getting on my nerves not doing anything about them. The software that I was using before is far outdated (It probably would not even run in Windows 7,) so I am technically starting fresh.
I would like recommendations on the language that would be best for me. Of course it means hoping for relatively simple syntax (again, I do have knowledge; this isn't all foreign not me), and as I said before I am speaking only of little projects (automatic countdown, special calculators, maybe macro design as a little more complex.) Naturally, it needs to be free software if possible, if it means getting an older free version over a paid newer version since the projects are almost exclusively for me anyway.
So... if you wouldn't mind helping me, fire away!
And, of course, thank you in advance.
