    Although I'm a bad coder (and still learning), I recommend learning the foundations of a language before moving onto more advanced topics. C I found challenging (even as of now), WITH prior experience to web development. Still, if you're determined, go for it. Use tutorialspoint or some youtube videos. Good luck!

    C++ is fine to develop homebrew apps. C is harder and quite complex for a beginner, but I started with that and had no problems at all learning C++ later on

    If you have experience with python and you'd like to jump straight to C, this might be good for you

    C is harder, do as you wish. It depends on what you want to do, really.

    Gambia, The
    you could say C++ is an advanced C. C could be easier, while c++ makes it easier for big projects like games to write structured code.
    Also if you know c, many other languages are easy to learn.
