    Just starting in the Industry, I have a VERY basic understanding of programming(HTML).
    Can anyone suggest a reference site for beginners or white papers that can explain not so much the differences in languages, but a basic overview.
    And what would be a good starting point, not to begin programming but just general knowledge for the Industry.
    Any advce would be welcomed.

    HTML is not really a programming language because it is static in nature.....a server just serves you what is written in the code. I would suggest some visual basic, it will give you a start on trying other things and you will understand the fundamentals at least. What do you want to get into....GUI programming for Windows apps or web application type programming.

    That's just it Rockn, I don't want to get into the programming side.
    I am probably going down the Network Admin road, so something to help out in that area. Basic script writting, that sort of thing, which I think might be VB.
    Any good sites or overview to give me a general idea.

    This is a pretty nice little overview of html. Its not all there but gives you the most commonly used snipets.

    Hope it helps.

    Most network admins generally don't do any kind of programming and really don't need to know any. There are different kinds of administrators like DBA's , Program Analysts whatever. So make sure you know what you want.
