Well, I decided that when I get out of High School (and maybe college) I want to get into computer programming. I want to be able to write code, I am learning python on my own and i am wondering... Is this a good language to start with? I heard it was easier than most to learn but, Will I be able to branch out and learn other languages? What I 'm trying to ask is it similar enough to others to make it a viable beginning point for a novice. I want to eventually learn c++ and java.
