I originally intended to study C++. I made a brave attempt as I came halway in my thick "Learn C++" book. Several popup windows were made until I got stuck, big time without being able to make further progress, so that went down the drain.
I heard that Python is an easy programming language to learn (that is so much needed after my experience with C++!), and after been studying Python for a little as I have done know, I can say that I like it so far! I heard about Swift the other day (which is also easy to learn and excellent to make apps for the iOS with!), that made me curious about learning that language as well. My new path looks like this: HTML, CSS, Python, C++ and Swift!
