Over the last few years i have had a growing curiosity on what it's like to code.I am a 40 yr old IT consultant with no previous coding experience. I enjoy problem solving and troubleshooting so i am hoping to get some fun out of the new world (to me) of coding. My main issue is that with so many languages out there i dont know where to start. I would like to start with one that's easy for beginners to get into and yet relevant. A language that could open opportunities 10 yrs down the line, should i wish, though the main motivator here is enjoyment.
Any pointers and links would be gratefully received.
