hey .i have following wpc since a long time almost a year now i guess..and i use the l920 as my main phone
i study in school (16yrs old) and here is the deal i want to develop some apps/programs for wp8 or maybe even w8 later
right now i know nothing but i am ready to learn..
we were initially go to do C++ in school but they changed it to python which they will start teaching from july....they have removed c++ completely...
so can someone help out ..first of all do i still learn c++ on my own or will python do the trick too...also ..once i learn the lang what next....how to do stuff...ofc i dont want anyone to type long replies so links to sites will work too?

But none of these is used for app development, by beginners. I use C# for WP8, some of my freinds use HTML5 too.
Since i know core java, C# is right for me, bith have almost similar syntax.
since you are a student, register yourself on dreamspark.com, verify your account and then you can get a free developer account too.
Even if you dont register right now, you can download Visual Studio Express for WP from dreamspark site & start developing right away, also you can begin watching these videos, really helpful:
C# Fundamentals: Development for Absolute Beginners | Channel 9
HTML5 & CSS3 Fundamentals: Development for Absolute Beginners | Channel 9
Select one method and stick to it, i would recommend C#, easy to learn while making apps themselves.
& Watch this, really good.

For C++ you can use any number of IDEs including Visual C++ in Visual Studio or even free compilers like Bloodshed, or if you run Linux anywhere there are native tools in Linux for compiling C/C++.

You can get a dreamspark account but unfortunately you cant sign up for a dev account because you have to bee 18 years, I have that problem because Im 16 too. So, you will unfortunately have to have win8 because you cant test your apps on the phone so you need the emulator :(

C# vote too. Most importantly because examples are generally more plentiful in C# to get you started. Unless you're writing a game or some other performance dependent code it's generally easier to get it done in C#.
