I'd say, start with Python and work yourself into more complex
languages. Python teaches you to indent properly, and it is good with
being simple, yet powerful at the same time. I'd be happy to teach you
the basics with Python. I've taught a few people how to program, and
they learn Python pretty quickly, and from that, they are able to get
into the "programmer's mindset" and move on to other languages. As an
example, I taught a person how to program in Python over about a week
period, and after that he wanted to learn C++. We worked on a small
project together, using TCP sockets and such, and eventually he made a
savegame editor for some game that he was beta testing all on his own,
as well as a Netware NLM that checks backup logs and reports the status
to a webserver. Python is good in that it does support object oriented
programming, yet it's very easy to pickup on. Also, the builtin
interpreter makes it easy to try out your code as you are writing it.
There are others out there though, such as Microsoft Visual Basic that
do a decent job. But, the nice thing about Python is that you can run
your programs on Linux as well as Windows without any (or very few)
changes.
