    Python is way cooler and cleaner than that inferior language joe posted above

    Code:
    while 1==1:
        print("joe pesci secretly sad and embarrased that he doesn't know python")

    C#'s isn't the best to start on, but if I understand what you're saying starting with Java is the best.

    VBS is a fairly easy language compared to others, although the good part it is transferable when learning. If you don't mind why are you learning C or C++?

    in school right now, but most of the jobs in this area require some C#. So the school just changed their curriculum from VB to C# and knew i needed it.

    I'm most proficient in Fortran unfortunately so when I switch over to Python or any other object oriented programming language it is such a pain in the ass. I like python though, use it a lot to mine through data and make pretty charts. It's also extremely well supported in the community so there is a limitless amount of help out there if you get stuck.

    Work with mostly C#/.NET stuff and Javascript, but interesting in learning functional programming languages like Elixir. I did a big Ruby on Rails tutorial so have a little bit of experience (with respect to Ruby), but I'm mostly motivated since I keep seeing people act like there is an impending wave of Functional languages that flood the job market.

    Java and C# are similar enough, imo, that it should be too much of a challenge to start, unless you're talking about trying to set up a Programming environment. It wasn't hard for me to take an Algorithms course online in Java even though I had only been working in C# (did take a couple of courses in Java in college but that's been almost 10 years now).

    Also, if anyone is like me and switched careers into Software Development or wants a more fundamental understanding of programming, I HIGHLY recommend these free online courses.

    https://www.coursera.org/course/algs4partI
    https://www.coursera.org/course/algs4partII

    When you take them back-to-back, they span about a semester's length. You can download all the lecture videos, but they release two lectures worth every week and assign homework and beefy programming assignments (students at Princeton basically follow the same course and do these same assignments). You don't need a strong math background, but they do explain a lot of classic Data Structures and Algorithms in discrete mathematical terms and sometimes Calculus. When you submit your programming assignments, an autograder will test the shit out of it (timing, memory, etc.) to make sure you properly implemented whatever data structure/algorithm the assignment covers and assigns a grade accordingly. The downside is that it's Princeton's policy to not award any certificate of completion for any of their Cousera classes.

    Not that anyone gives a shit about my story, but I initially tried to major in both CS and Bio in college. I then switched solely to Bio since I had the idea that I would want to go to graduate school for Cell Bio, now I'm back to what I was initially studying years ago and love it. Probably not going to go back to college at this point since I feel that there is enough free/cheap resources for me to learn as much fundamentals as possible. I'm by no means an expert at this point, but I've busted my ass enough to know that if I need to learn something I feel confident that I can.

    I'm a finance nerd who got into larger data sets and an old CIO I worked for hired me to do analytics and predictive modeling, shit I haven't done before.

    So basically I'm all....

    My old company was in the process of selling and I was actually looking to go back to school for analytics and data science.

    So I'm doing hard core On the Job training.

    I'm going to check this out after I finish the course. Didn't you do this first before through Python for Everyone?

    The course is pretty low level so you might have a head start.
