What Programming Language Should You Learn First in 2022? Which programming language should you learn first to get started learning to code? What programming language should I learn to get a job?
These are the questions in the minds of most people beginning to learn to code.

In this video, I WILL give you an answer to that!
If you’re new to programming, the first question burning in your mind is probably:
“Which programming language should I learn first?”
“Which programming language is the best?”
Firstly I want to say that I actually hate both of these questions (especially the second one). I think they are the wrong questions to ask. Anyone with a little bit of experience programming will know that what language you choose first isn’t nearly as important as understanding the underlying logic of programming which is more or less the same across all languages.
When to use a for loop, how to use variables, when to use recursion..these are the types of concepts you’ll have to understand as a programmer — no matter which language! And if you understand them in one language, knowing how to use them in another reduces to the trivial matter of finding the correct syntax.
But with all that being said, I do in fact think that asking the question of ‘which language to learn’ is in fact reasonable.
The last disclaimer I will make is that the language you choose will depend on your goals.
-To learn Computer Science fundamentals, you should probably go with a low-level language like C (in fact, if you are pursuing a CS degree, this choice will be made for you anyway so the question is redundant)
-For Machine Learning & Data Science stuff, you should probably go with Python because it’s the industry standard
-I know nothing about game development, but I hear they use mostly C++
HOWEVER, if you are like most people, you probably want to learn to program because you just want to get a job as fast as possible and/or you’re just first delving into the world of tech with no specific goal other than ‘learning to code’.
And for these people, ie for most people in most cases, I do think there is one language that is actually the “best” one to start with
So then what is that magical language you ask?…(drumroll…)
