If you ever think of learning a programming language, learn python. You can learn it on your own and you don't have to learn it for a career in programming. With some basic python and lots of googling you can automate boring stuff on a computer or get things to talk to each other

@moftasa And then if you want to learn more advanced concepts, like OO or data structures, they are right there in the language you already know.

The most significant down-side I know of is that, for people who _do_ go on to learn more programming, there are certain pretty common concepts that might be more confusing for them -- notably static typing.

@pbx yes, I failed to grasp OO! And I don't even know what static typing is!
