Comment I would start with HTML, CSS, and javascript (Score 1) 312

Mostly because it is very easy to start, there are many places to get 'How do you do....X' instruction, and it will translate almost immediately to a skill set you can take with you. JavaScript is not necessarily the best language to learn, but it has many widespread web development uses and has a super low barrier of entry.

I don't know why it would matter, I see my OP was labeled troll. But, I figure folks have two options. You can accept the response that Apple gave (regarding the phone jack and 'courage') or you can recognize it as BS. And troll everyone who sees the world in black and white. IE-He poked fun at a bad decision Apple made, so he must hate Apple, or not.

Truly though, Apple deserves to be trolled at every opportunity for telling consumers, in essence, that it doesn't matter what you want and you simply lack .

So, when Consumer Reports tells other consumers about something bad concerning an Apple product, I fully expect them to rely upon the same hubris that lead to the 'courage' remark.

At some point, the business will operate well enough that people doing the actual 'work' can leave without everything crashing. So that new people are simply cogs in the machine that is already running. Then the only important people are those 'leading' or 'managing' the additional generation of revenue. And the 'workers' matter less, as the machine will continue to 'work' with minimal effort. So those in upper positions are the only ones who can 'make' more wealth with the machine by strearing it this way or what. And it shows in those sorts of things.
