The best first language is the one you feel the most comfortable with using. If it's C that looks the friendliest, learn it. If it's ASP.NET, learn it (and then run), if it's PHP, learn it.

Just find something that you like. :)

Well, there's several sites. First off is PHP's official site, http://www.php.net, but that doesn't teach you the programming basics, it's more geared towards the programmers that know how to code already. For a beginner, I'd say http://w3schools.com/ would be a good place to start.

Also, as an FYI, PHP is a server-side web development language. :)

That I couldn't tell you. I don't work with Sandbox, so that'll have to be Mike, Clownfish, or maybe Hirato that answers that question. :lol:

Why don't you start with some basic cubescript and then start getting into the c++? Take a look at the save the princess example on the wiki and then go from there into stuff like the code from village. Take care.
