Fair enough, some even say the most appropriate 'first programming language' is Assembly. Get to know the core and then move up to higher languages with ease, based on necessity.

I learned with C which certainly isn't quite so close to the metal. It is close enough to make me appreciate what higher level languages take care for you. It does help to be able to dip into the C source as one sometimes has to when digging around in Ruby.

I have written some Assembly but mostly just out of curiosity
