What, in your opinion, would be the best programming language to begin with? Now, a little background about myself. I graduated from high school in 08', failed out of college the following fall, I'm A+ and Network+ certified. I'm hoping to start college again in the fall now that I have less shit on my mind and a foot in my ass (Future wife ). What do you think would be the best starting language for someone of my caliber? I come asking you this question because I want to develop for this type of community for fun (Various exploits, homebrew, launchers etc) and hopefully help to improve upon some of the code. I'm hoping to become a contributing member to the community.
