    Is there a programming language that is easy to learn that people who are impatient (like me) can learn it? And is there a programming language that looks like plain English (i is VERY close?) I have a idea for a program but i don't think anybody would like to program it.

    EDIT! : I have no TEXT programming experience. So don't throw lua at me because i every tutorial is like

    Welcome! Lets start of with the basics
    print ("Hello World!")

    Now the next step

    So make it so there are easy to understand tutorials.

    Yea the problem is that everytime i try to go on codeacademy i can be half way and be like "So i forgot, how do you make text print out a variable?" I have ADHD so it makes learning programming languages like im learning how to speak a alien language that requires to talk in english japanese and french!

    Python, also the scripted nature of it makes it easy for starters.

    I know, same thing happened. In fact i once made a cheat sheet for ruby and recorded videos of me learning python but i was like "Soo...Wha...*yawn* Argh!" I am REALLY good a scratch but it can be sometimes limited and is very hard to make it a exe file without it show the editor for 2 seconds.

    Well you its kinda like a bridge. The bottomless pit is where i forget stuff. Now im running across it and the bridge is collapsing while im running. Now make every step of a programming language a piece of wood...Yeah thats me.
    Is there a programming language thats like python with the scratch GUI? and the conplicaded code is put in plain english. Then you could compile it?

    My experience regarding lack of concentration and learning a programming language is that you don't read tutorials or so, you just program
    You write programs first, then you learn the programming language as a consequence.
    It is important to get results fast, and see what happens when you modify things.
    Because of this, when a language is a scripting language, the approach works well.
    Perhaps what I say sounds weird.
    Another thing that helps to this approach is to have the environment and language documentation very closely integrated.
    I learnt C in the old times using the Borland TurboC environment.
    That old shit did magic integrating documentation for C inside the IDE with context help and so, great tool for learning.
    But nobody uses a shit that needs DOS and works better in a 80286 anymore. ;)

    Are you on Linux? I can compile a python game I created real fast and let you look at the source.. It was actually REALLY simple it took mabye 5 lines of code, and it runs out of the terminal.

    Hmm ive never used scratch. I just use IDLE Python Runtime. It's really easy to setup and will work on your operating system too. Does scratch let you view source? Because i know with Python source you can compile as an .exe

    Well you can go on the scratch editor online but you can get a text version of it. There used to be a scratch mod that was like scratch and a whole bunch of other languages put together but the download link is expired.

    Check out this mass production game made with Python.
    http://www.froemling.net/apps/bombsquad
    It's called Bomb Squad and it's AMAZING
    From what it looks like. Scratch seems like a baby step, if you want to be serious about programming then you cant just use game creators..

    Work on it.
    Python would be as easy as it gets for programming something that works good.
    I don't think you can get it easier.
    Also, Python has widely supported libraries for everything, perhaps you could even ask it to serve you breakfast and there will be a library for that.
    You don't know how much things gets difficult in other languages regarding support for several things.
    This jokes means it regarding Python:

    Most of the hard work has already been done for you on Python.

    PS: Another option would be realizing programming is just not for you. If you don't have the will power to sit and concentrate on it, just give it up.

    OK! I just need a tutorial that explains it to me like im a 4 year old. Fast so i dont get so bored, Easy so i dont read a million times and dont undertand it. Easy to remember so i dont spend 50 hours trying to burn into my mind how to make a string say a varible and Personallity (optional) so its kinda like my awesome best friend is teaching me how to program and making jokes and things to keep me intrested.

    I'm HONESTLY still a beginner to the language i REALLY get it though, I used this book to start off: https://www.nostarch.com/pythonforkids
    It's not just for kids and it's EXACTLY what youre looking for
