Went to check out some IT/Developer educations with my youngest son who will hopefully be graduating high-school next may. At one of the educations they actually used javascript as a *cough* programming *cough* language to start learning these kids the basics ... I guess that rules out at least 1 place to start his new studies.

    Sorry, what?
    That is perfectly fine. JS is a good beginner language.

    JS is the new PHP

    @PrivateGER if you tell that to yourself often enough, maybe you will start believing that. Js is not a proper language, more like a speaking disability.

    What do you want your kid to start with then, assembler!?

    Teach your kid to be a language snob/fanboy, that’ll be handy

    @Hansz It is a proper language used worldwide. Just as Plasticnova said, you're a language snob right now.
    What do you want, fucking ARM Assembly?

    Be happy they don't use Scratch.

    Not being funny, but most of the languages they start kids out learning aren't the best technically.

    Hell, I'm just about old enough to have coded in BASIC, and that's a crap language, but still got plenty of people coding.
