    Um... Scratch isn't new? Pretty sure it's been around since like 2005.

    It's apt to children, to learn how to program.
    But if you want to learn to program you can use it too.
    You can see the creations of people and people can see yours.

    Pros: it's very intuitive and easy
    Cons: it's not profesional

    ^ It is difficult always searching for blocks, while in python I do memorise a lot of instructions easily

    Scratch is an actual piece of shit. They say it'll teach kids to code, well ok if that's true, it's been 16 years, where are all these fucking coders scratch has made?

    The best start is C++. The logic is to use it to learn all of the big strict rules. Then, as you go to other languages, you can learn to break some of the rules and learn only a few small rules.
    Saw someone here (I think) post this... Very useful: https://imgur.com/gallery/o2RxN
