Programming I – Discussions on languages

There were two very good discussions on Slashdot ( recently about which programming languages to use. One posted the question of whether Visual Basic was a good beginner’s language, and the other was a discussion about Ruby on Rails. The Visual Basic discussion was especially interesting to me, there were a lot of posts on the ins & outs of different languages, the best uses of different languages, and the programming habits that are required and/or encouraged by different languages.

Ruby on Rails –

Ruby home page –
Python home page –
O’Reilly’s home page –
A wikipedia entry on Abstract Data Types –
