+ - Ask Slashdot: The Best Way to Learn to Start Codin 1

Submitted by Turbine2k5
Turbine2k5 (2531842) writes "I work only 4 nights a week, so I have a lot of free time to do whatever. I'm looking to occupy some of that time with something more productive, and I thought learning a programming language is a great time-occupier. There are a ton of different languages out there, and a lot of them seem almost intimidating to even start. I'm having troubles picking one out that may help me in the future, if I decide to go out towards a different career path. I don't have a lot of cash, and I'd really like to hit the ground running. Any suggestions?"

Google says that this is "not the end of the project" and that they'll "be looking closely at ways to bring ultra high-speed Internet to other cities across the country.""
