Learning how to program and its many different languages can be an intimidating process. It is essentially like learning a foreign language with its own set of rules and elements that at first glance, makes you want to give up. However, focusing on learning one type of language will help you learn the other languages much quicker than you would think.
The language you choose to start with is not going to make or break your program language learning experience. Many of the same elements used in one language can be applied to others, which allows you to then keep building off of your existing programming knowledge.
