A Quick Comparison of Programming Languages

Before starting with an in-depth programming language comparison, one important issue needs to be discussed first.

It is about the choice of the first programming language.

Contrary to what novice programmers think, the choice of the first programming language is not of high importance for learning computer programming.

The reason why the language itself is of lesser importance is that all popular programming languages have very similar basic features. Therefore, learning one language is very similar to learning another one. After a person has acquired the basics of programming in one language, it becomes very easy to switch to another language.

It is much more important to find and follow a high-quality programming tutorial. A high-quality tutorial makes learning computer programming much easier.

The ZedLX tutorial has been specifically designed for young adults. It employs computer graphics from the start, and an easy-to-use learning environment.
