Would starting big and learning C++ be a good thing? I have heard that it is a very hard language to learn because of the syntax, but I think it's only hard because of the time it takes to learn. So I think I would give it a try. What do you think?
To be honest, it doesn't matter what language you start with, yes some languages are harder than others (C++ comes to mind). The real advice is to be determined about learning and do it on purpose. Make a habit of learning more every day, increase your skill. The best way to learn to code is to code. Do it every day. If you adopt habits like this then the language doesn't matter.
