Default Re: New to programming

I agree that C/C++ should NOT be the language you start with. If by chance you have the abnormal ability to grasp the logics, fundamentals and principles behind programming very naturally and swiftly, then it may not be an issue, though that is unlikely :P. I have used many different programming languages, and feel learning on something very simple such as BASIC, Visual Basic (either .NET, or even VBA) or even something such as python.

The thing to remember here is that you don't want to learn a language, you want to learn the concepts, the principles, and paradigms, and everything else associated with programming. After learning your first language, most other languages will be just a simple transition, granted you understand programming, and not just the language itself
