i'm not yet a computer programmer but i want to be soon, so i can make a massively multiplayer online computer game.
i was wondering what computer language would be best to learn for this, or indeed if i would need to learn more than one language...
the game would need to be very secure so people can't hack into it, but also flexible so that people can make their own items (from templates).
it would be 2 dimensional and in real time.
i suppose a more important question is: would i be able to do this all by myself? from scratch will it take months or years to learn a language and programme an online game?
thanks for any help or replies
