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?
