re: What are some less common programming languages that are good for beginners? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

F# might be a good one if you're interested in functional programming.

Pascal was used to teach algorithmic programming back in the day.

 

Thanks. I've used F# myself and it's probably good for beginners. The syntax is relatively simple and it leaves out type declarations, yet it still has a strong type system. Do you have any stories or knowledge of how teaching functional programming before imperative is?

Could you elaborate on why Pascal is good for algorithmic teaching? What properties make it a good beginner language?

This post isn't for what I should learn myself, I've been programming for a while. I'm looking for alternatives to Python and JavaScript for beginners, as I'm quite interested in the teaching of programming.
