Hi there, As the title suggests, I am looking to start learning my first programming language. I am a mature student (24) who has recently returned to school to pursue physics. A friend of mine who does physics suggested that I learn Fortran (90/95) as my first language. I am looking online for tutorials but haven't had much luck. The tutorials on the Fortran site all seem to assume prior programming experience, and obviously I have none I was hoping someone could recommend a good online tutorial (preferably free, but I am willing to pay)...Any help is appreciated. Alternatively a good friend of mine who does CS suggested that I learn Python as my first language and provided me with a great online tutorial. Opinions on whether I should learn Fortran or Python as my first language? Or is it irrelevant? Thanks!
