My first experience with programming was back in the late 80’s with basic when I was in middle school. I liked it, and it made sense to me. Now, I’m looking to expand my repertoire of computer knowledge, and from what I’ve read online, Python is a good one to start with.
People have said that it is widely used, fairly intuitive, doesn’t have too steep a learning curve, all of which I am in big favor of.
So, is this something worth getting into? If so, what tools, downloads, and sites do you recommend? Any and all feedback is welcome. I’ve heard good things about Ruby and Perl too, but those might not be for me. I don’t know, that’s why I’m asking.
