Python is without doubt a very good language, but it's not good for the
beginner because they will pick up bad practices, mostly because of the
loose type paradigm.
For teaching programming I strongly belive that Ada95 is by far the best, it
teaches the students how to write good code; I do believe that at least in
universities Python should be the language of choice beyond the first year
studies, unless doing hardware or AI programming.
