Hey guys, so I am a CS/Math major Sophomore in college right now, and I have been learning purely C++ for the past three years or so.

Anyways, I want to learn another language, specifically something that I could use to write games with. I am also looking for internships this summer, so having another language will definitely be helpful.

Only having C++ on my resume makes it look kind of lonely, so I feel like I should start learning another one, and I would love to learn something that could aid in game development.

What would you guys suggest I learn?

I recommend Python, it's good looking and extremely easy to learn. You can use it for writing games, but also for many other things.

I have been positively impressed by JavaScript. It is a very worthy complement to C++ and a very useful tool to write the utilities. With a modern browser and WebSockets, you can have a C++ server moving a HTML GUI and stick "cloud" in your resume. I think this hybrid has a lot of potential!

 

Now that I have JS however I've been asked to do Python.
