where you begining in software skills????
If you want to learn physical computing so that you can build something that interacts with sensors and actuators, better to use an 8-bit Arduino. And if you want to learn how to write software, better to do your coding on a normal laptop .
Can’t really be a programmer without knowing a programming language—you know what I mean, Vern? (See Ernest P. Worrell if you don’t get that reference. Enjoy.)
We’ll talk about selecting which programming language to learn in the chapter cleverly named “What Programming Language to Learn,” so don’t stress out about that just yet.
I will say very quickly, though, that the choice of which programming language to learn is not as important as you may think it is.
Instead, let’s talk about why I’d suggest starting with just one programming language and not trying to learn everything there is under the sun.
Many beginning programmers try to hedge their bets by learning several programming languages at once or before they try to take on their first job as a software developer.
