Ever thought about studying a bit of programming? Thought it was a too daunting task?
I've just gone through the second lesson on learnstreet and it's quite fun! It doesn't take long to go through the first two lessons, so if you don't have much time you can spend a few minutes each day going to the next exercise or lesson.
Only other language I've studied is C++ back in high school - it did not sit so well with me back then.
Since then I've made acquaintance with Ruby, Python and Perl, but never made it too far away from bash.
Why start with Python then? I've seen announcements of vulnerabilities for Ruby lately, Perl isn't on learnstreet and Python is used in some scripts at work.
