Colm Madigan replied to Nita's discussion calling all computer programming nerdfighters
"My suggestion is start with Java. It's relatively simple, well supported and it often tells you where you have gone wrong in your syntax. I know that people here are recommending python but I wouldn't start off with that as it's a…"
