      Don’t listen to that guy. I welcome beginners, boot campers, and new grads. With the right culture and mentors, most smart people can learn how to create pretty decent CRUD apps, and there are lots of CRUD work to do at any companies. It’ll free up people with who can do more interesting work to do more interesting work.

    Python has a lower barrier to entry, and is very widely used.

    ... As a corollary, there is also a very wide range of programmer quality. That's universally true, but even moreso in Python. So... Be careful where you learn from.

    Take whatever Coursera course gets you off the ground, and then learn the best practices (books like Effective Python, and plenty of online resources).

    It's REALLY easy to write shitty python code that still "works" :)

    I recommend first deciding what kind of projects you want to build. Having a project/idea you want to build out will motivate you to stick with it and continue learning. For example - you have an idea for an app, so you pick up swift/obj-c

    Python. It’s a popular all-purpose language that’s still growing in use and barrier of entry is low. I’d recommend ruby if you just want to learn programming but it’s declining in popularity and its uses are pretty much limited to web development.

      I don't want to be front end developer. Would like to get into server side programming.if that is what you meant by purpose.
