I have a weird obsession with computers. I love them. I love Linux. I love customizing my computer.
The problem I have is that I really don’t know where to start! There are frickin’ TONS of different languages out there. What one makes the biggest bang for your buck? If I learn one, will I have an easy time learning others?
I have been following the Lifehacker ‘Learn How to Code‘ week, where they suggest you start with Java. I have started reading C_Programming from Wikibooks. But at the same time I really love using the Terminal, so I’ve started a course on Bash online. Too much at the same time…
So I am looking for suggestions. Anyone?
