Discussion on: Which programming language would you start with and why?

As someone that went through the university path, I'm biased towards strong typed languages first. And that's because I consider the need of syntax and organization of the code make you learn more concepts than you would do if you jump right into a script language. For that reason I would say C++ is a good start, but only if you have the time to spend learning languages.

If we want to learn something on the go and make cool projects at the same time, I would say Python and JS are great first starters. I would go with python first in that case.
