I've tried many languages before Python: C/C++, Java, Perl, Visual
Basic (Some people says, that it's not programming language, and maybe
they're right. =), Delphi, Pascal and Php. But I didn't learned them
further, because I didn't have time and I didn't feel that they're my
thing. Perl and Php made an exception. I like Perl, and it's so
handy in some tasks, but Perl is Perl. =) Php is very handy when
static webpages are not enough for you.
Then someday I found "How To Become A Hacker FAQ" by Eric S. Raymond
and it says that you should first learn Python. And now I'm stuck
with it. I think that someday when I'll be the real hacker I can say
that Python was the first language that I learned.
I hope you understand what I tried to say, but I can't guarantee it,
because my English isn't very good.
