I think HTML is the most easiest programming language to learn. You should start off with the basics and will know how to build a simple web page after surveying their codes for a while. what do you guys think?

I would also agree with this. HTML5 would be the ideal language for newbies to learn instead of learning the old HTML language and then have to learn the new attributes of HTML5. CSS is also pretty straight forward and it goes hand in hand with HTML.

HTML is NOT a programming language...!!! Its a markup language which contains a simple set of tags and data contained within it... The same thing applies to XML, JSON etc... These are formats to hold data... That is it... With HTML there is also the option to separate presentation with the use of CSS... If that was the case then you may as well call ms-word a programming language...

A programming language is much more richer than just markup tags... For example the use of variables, arrays, if then else, loops and then moving onto objects, classes etc... HTML is static - once rendered it provides no means for interaction, processing of data etc.. You'll need Javascript, AJAX (client side programming) as well as server side such as PHP, C# etc...

In other words to be classed as a progamming language it first must satisfy the criteria to be able to process data from one state to another state... HTML does not do that.

In response to the OP - I would say the easiest programming language to learn and the one I recommend folks get started with is VBA (MS-Access)... As then you'll learn about databases (SQL), forms and how to process data as part of GUI (user interface)... After that I would move on to Web programming i.e.Javascript, PHP and perhaps Java...

One of the things I have observed today is that a lot of new programmers do not have a solid foundation... They jump into the latest thing and focus on slick user interfaces, whilst lacking fundamental areas such as database design, solid understanding of SQL i.e. complex queries with inner/outer joins which perform massively faster than writing out a coded version due to lack of understanding... Hence my recommendation to start out with MS-Access (VBA) due it being easily available and means to learn the fundamentals before moving on....

Python is pretty easy. Javascript is too. Note: Javascript is NOT Java. They aren't even close.

Javascript is used by nearly every interactive site on the web. Google uses lots of python for their services.

Codecademy is a good place to start learning.

As was said above, HTML is NOT a programming language, but it is good to learn.

C is easy?
I mean I can see Python up there, because I code in Python and I know it's easy. I can see Javascript because let's face it, it's easier than learning C++. Java is slightly more difficult than Python.

But C????
How did you come to that conclusion :D ?

I am probably the odd one, but I only want to know CSS these days. I wasted so many years "coding" or "marking up" webpages, with wordpress doing pretty much all of it for me now, I opt to use my time for better things than making web pages.

Also, several years back wasted a ton of time learning PHP. I say wasted because just about everything you need is already available, such as plug-ins. I'd rather buy something that is ready-to-go and works properly. More important things to do with my time.

But hey, some people like to code, so more power to them :)

And as far as which is "easy" to learn, no one can say, depends on the person. For some folks, every one of them might be difficult to learn.

Just my opinion.

Most of the "mainstream" programming languages—such as C, Java, C#, Perl, Ruby, and Python—can do the same—or nearly the same—tasks as the others. Java, for example, works cross-platform and is used for web apps and applets, but Ruby also can do large web apps and Python apps similarly run on Linux and Windows. SOA World points out that because many languages are modeled after each other, the syntax or structure of working on them is often nearly identical, so learning one often helps with learning the others. For example, to print "Hello World," Java and C# are syntactically similar just as Perl and Python

Most languages share the same core structure, so I'm not sure if easy or not is the right parameter to measure (html and css are not languages so I'm not going there).
Probably for web the most efficient language to learn is php, plus some sql if you really want to go into coding. Most platforms use php, so knowing the wraps allows us to tweak and blend efficiently.

Do you know about Python or C/C++? if yes then why you suppose it's easiest coding language to learn?

Python is usually used and referred to as a scripting language, allowing programmers to churn out large quantities of easily readable and functional code in short periods of time, but it's also dynamic, and supports object-oriented, procedural, and functional programming styles.

C, for its part, is an extremely widely-used, general purpose, imperative programming language that's heavily influenced almost every language that's followed it. C++ on the other hand took things a step further, added object-oriented features like classes to the language, along with virtual functions and templates. C++ is another of the world's most popular programming languages, and is still in wide use today in everything from video games to productivity software.

And Yes i have used both the language.

Disregarding the fact that HTML is not a coding language I would say HTML. But as for a real coding language I would have to say C++.

I think PHP is very easy.I didn't learn it on purpose.I mastered it while coding on Wordpress.You can see how easy it is.

I agree HTML is the first language that we learned to create simple websites, also easy to learn.
I think PHP is very easy
I could be but need a little time to study before you can build real php websites

I would say that one of the hardest to learn are C++ and Assembly.

However, I recommend learning the hardest ones first and then they all appear easy for you. I started with C++. Now nothing hurts.

Yeah, html and css are not programming languages. JavaScript is pretty simple and a good starting point, and once you have that one down, Python and others are super simple to learn, because they share a lot of similarities with one another.

Hmm, @op Html is not a programming language. More of markup for creating the structure of webpages. A programming language must have some qualities not inherent in html. For an easy programming language, i would choose python.

I don't think HTML is a programming language bro. Here's the programming languages I learned when I was in college: C, C++, C#, Java, Python, PHP but not HTML or CSS? I think those are different.

Html is a Mark up language not a programming language. There are parameters that define a programming which html doesn't have.
