If you're happy with Python then there is little reason to switch. Learning programming languages has a small implication on your code. It is far more imperial that you learn to manage the programming concepts so that they don't get in your way. Edited by boogyman19946

I agree with boogy. If you're happy with Python stick to it. Python is a pretty awesome language. :D If you feel like moving to a different language, you could check out C# or Java.

Learn the language that appeals to you most. Once you know one language, additional languages are a month to get started, three to proficiency (on average, and not counting the more "out there" languages you probably won't run into in day-to-day, like Assembly, which is its own whole topic).

If you're in need of learning materials, you might try the freely available [url="http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/"]Think Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist[/url] and/or [url="http://www.swaroopch.org/notes/Python"]A Byte of Python[/url]. You could also try [url="http://www.mindview.net/Books/TIPython"]Thinking In Python[/url] or [url="http://www.diveintopython.net/"]Dive Into Python[/url], but these are more aimed at experienced programmers who are simply new to Python.

Python is a great language for beginners -- good luck with your learning experience! [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/cool.png[/img]
