Use it or lose it…

Many, many years ago I did develop some faltering knowledge of programming. Struggling with BASIC (on my BBC Micro), FORTRAN (at college), a smattering of Pascal and some DBase scripts. All of which are now completely forgotten!

Well, I’m not sure why, but I really fancy the challenge of a new language. Where on earth should I start? Wikipedia lists (literally) dozens – guess it depends entirely on what I want to do with it! Just the challenge really. But apparently it takes about 10 years!

    Well, it depends whether you’re really after a pure academic challenge, or you want something that’s genuinely useful.

    If there’s any trace of the latter, I’d strongly recommend Python. …

    Funnily enough, that’s where I’ve ended up. Helps that it’s already there on my MacBook!

    Thanks
