So I've started learning programming. It's something I've always wanted to do: the problem has been motivation. A friend suggested I should learn Python, so I started on that today. I'm using Alan Gauld's guide Learning to Program which is nice as it also includes guides to JavaScript and VBScript for you Windows weenies ;-)

I didn't like Python anywhere near as much as I had hoped I would. :-/

Hi Andy,

I hate the way Python indicates code blocks, but I think the reason it was recommended is that it can serve as a gentle introduction - it's very readable even if the blocking style doesn't make it very "writable" imho :-)
