What To Learn After Scratch

I like C and Java

While Python is also a great option, i hate the syntaxes

Moving from Scratch? Don't learn C or Java, try Snap!
it haz OOP

By making Python simple, they actually made it more confusing and bizarre. And I would argue that JavaScript is more useful.
I don't want to get in an argument, but didn't they use Python in Google and YouTube? I think that Python is more useful than JavaScript.

Then you look at the mess that is python package management… (npm FTW)

Floorball is a fast indoor rink sport played with lightweight sticks with a strong plastic blade. On the rink there are 5 players + goalie (Me). Even though it requires fast reactions and quick thinking it's great for anybody wanting to have fun. Still want to get a taste for floorball? Watch this!

What To Learn After Scratch

There are programming languages like Java, Python, and Ruby that are really easy to learn and are pretty popular these days. For advanced programmers there are C, C#, and C++. Learn all these at www.Codeacademy.com and www.Khanacademy.com. -PandaAndy

DONT learn C# or ActionScript. Here's why:
C# is windoze only and won't work for Mac and Linux
Flash is dying. It has lots of security vulnerabilities. It is only around because of old software (that people are too lazy to port to HTML and JS).

What To Learn After Scratch

It's really awesome to see all the incredible options available to keep coding after Scratch. I wanted to share another resource called WoofJS. It is a Javascript framework that is a wonderful transition between Scratch and Javascript.

Woof commands directly correspond to Scratch blocks, allowing students to focus solely on syntax translation. Students don’t have to learn new metaphors and paradigms at the same time they’re picking up their first text-based syntax. Going from move 10 steps in Scratch to car.move(10); in Woof is a small enough jump that students familiar with Scratch can pick it up in just a few hours.

You can go to www.WoofJS.com to take a look!

i would try snap!, BYOB, or Blockly for a block-based language, and Python, JS, or C++ for a text based language.

my website go there if you want information about me.

It goes the same thing with C++ and most other languages
Also, you can't forge a One Ring using C++

Well you can do everything a Turing machine can do and more.

Edit: I have this bad habit now of not ending sentences with periods, exclamation marks or question marks… (edit 2: or ellipses)
