Which Language Should You Learn First?

Programming is one of those skills that doesn’t necessarily have a set order of components to learn, and as such, there isn’t really a standard for which language you should learn first. The method that most programmers use to figure out which language to learn is that they consider what they want to do career-wise, or what they want to build.

That, in turn, determines which language (or series of languages) they need to learn. So, look up the types of jobs you are interested in, look at their job descriptions, see which languages they require. From there, find an app that’s compatible with the language(s) you’ll be learning and jump on in.

That said, the most common computer programming languages you are likely to see are Python, JavaScript, and Java. And, you can take some solace in the fact that, although programming languages are different and are designed to perform differing tasks, their logic is mostly the same no matter what language you use, and that is ultimately what you need to learn.
