I’ll go against popular opinion. I started with Python. I did all my projects in my Master’s program in Python. However, after graduating, I started working for a company that worked on Microsoft stack. I realized the importance of strongly typed language when it came to writing large applications. I fell for “hey, how simple it is to write hello world program in python” trick. Everything looks nice, and feels better when you write a to-do app. You’ll see the real face of the language when your application grows. I recommend learning python after you have mastered a strongly typed language like Java/C#. There are “recommended” ways to write Python but not enforced upon. Also, I’ve heard learning about types is not a big hurdle for beginners.
