Which Programming Language?

There is large and ever growing number of languages to choose from. At the weekend I gave a talk on C# development with ASP.Net MVC at the DDD SW developer conference. Other speakers talked on Angular JS, F#, the Kinect API’s and much more.

My background includes learning BASIC in the 70’s at school. I then moved on to Visual Basic and C# over the last 15 years. I also work with HTML, JavaScript and CSS. As a trainer and consultant, I played with many other technologies over the years.

For first timers this can be a bit of a maze. It can be hard to work out where to concentrate your efforts. This will depend on previous experience. If it is your first language you are learning where do you start? Or you may just want the new features of a language you already know. Alternatively you could focus on key design patterns that are common to many languages.

You may want to avoid the hassle and work with a language that is easy to setup and learn. Or one that does not cost anything.
