Question

What programming language is advisable for a beginner to learn first?

by Elvis

Answer

If you are beginner in programming then it's better to start with scripting languages.

Scripting languages don't bother you with complicated things like garbage collection and data types, they do all of them for you, unlike programming languages such as c++ where there are tens of data types and complicated things like classes, derived classes, pointers, object relationships, compiling configurations...

I advise you to start with JavaScript because it has the largest community in the world, it means you can find hundreds of thousands of help, tutorials and libraries on the net.
