Needless to say C++ is a horrible language for starting to learn programming. Stick to C or use something like Python.
Do you think you a newbie is better to start programming with C (as suggested here), rather than Python, as C forces you "type" variables, which is arguably the most fundamental thing in writing code?
I started with C++ at uni and all that talk of classes and objects fried my mind back then.
I think that's an interesting question. My Python knowledge is limited, but it does make variables of differing types very easy to use and combine - but is that a bad thing? Will it just make the move to a typed language more difficult?
