best first programming language to learn
I stress I will probably do very little with this, but it is either I go back to school or I go back to learning something before I loose my mind.
Thinking about teaching myself C++, there seems to be a fair bit of self-study material available. And I have heard it is an excellent first language to use as your foundation, and that it makes learning other languages easier.
Any comments? experience? etc? that anyone is willing to share?
