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
make sense...

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.
