Best format to start on

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I just started learning how to code, and right now, I'm using codeacademy (just a tutorial website) to learn Python, just since I heard it's easy to start off on, and I'd like to transition into C, or C++ eventually. And i'm also trying to learn Autodesk Maya to animate.

So do you guys agree that Python is good to start learning on, and Maya aswell?

it is more about not getting bored/discouraged than about using any particular technology.

I am not personally as much of a fan of Python, but granted it is probably easier to learn than jumping right in with C or C++.
Maya is popular in the industry, and seems to be fairly "solid", so has this going for it.

granted, I can't really say much for "easy to learn" in general, as I have been programming for a fairly long time.

often-times, people will say whatever is easiest to learn is whatever they happen to be most familiar with (often leading to big fights over Java vs C# vs VB.NET vs ...), and other times is motivated more by nostalgia (many of the people who suggest BASIC, ...).

not clear how to really be objective here though.
