I am just starting out with my studies in IT. Before I get to the point where I have to choose a specialisation, I wanted to see what programming would be like.
It doesn't really matter what the programming language can be used for, I just want to get a feel for what programming is like. Also, I have heard that the most common reason for quitting programming is that it was too hard, so I don't want to choose a language that is going to be very difficult.
If you have any books or other internet resources you think would be helpful could you recommend them also?
