I'm really wanting to start learning a beneficial, but fairly easy-to-use programming language. I've tried to discuss this at other online communities and have also asked this question at a few seminar's I've been to recently.
My objective is to create more advanced software that interacts with the Internet. As software programming is a difficult learning curve, it's been suggested that I learn either vb.net or python. I know the very basics with VB.net, and am slowly getting more comfortable using Visual Studio - but with all these suggestions and my knowledge lacking I just wanted to ask for your opinions?
I think I would enjoy creating something visual stunning, and still have the most powerful option at hand - so do you think I should go with Python? I mean, I've heard that Python is the dominant language in gaming, and it's ability to adapt is awesome ... with its similarities with C++, do you think that's my best option?
Thanks for all your input guys, your advice is really appreciated!
