i always find C++ too complicated and will bite you one way or the other
in the future - multiple inheritance and templating naming a few.
the first programming language i have learned was VB then i moved the
java. man java was heaven for some time. I did study C and C++ since
my company is tied on this languages but a lot of it does not really
then came python. simple, powerful, and efficient. python makes you
more productive than java i would say. i have been a java programmer
for more than 3 years and i have never seen a language as effective and
powerful than python.
