After much consideration of learning Java or Python… I think Python is going to win.
1. Because it’s easy to learn for a non-programmer.
2. I will be able to get code running quicker because it doesn’t require compiling.
3. Some of the current things (simple) I want to do… can easily be done in Python.
4. Everybody that I know tells me… “learn Python, Java sucks.”
Here is a link that I think has a lot of good resources…
Wish me luck…
