Regarding programming, I'm a bloody beginner. I came in contact with BASIC as a child and learned some Pascal in high school. I never bothered to learn more, and I'm realising now how big of a mistake that was. So, as a little side project of my master thesis, I want to do some programming. Never mind the details, but I'd like to visualize a 1D, 2D and 3d mesh and maybe some mechanical properties between the mesh points. So, my question is, what programming language should I use? Which one is right for the task and practiacal enoough for me to learn? Someone suggested Python to me, because there are lots of tutorials out there. Would that be a good choice? I'm willing to buckle down and spend some time to learn how to do this computer thing but I would be even more enthusiastic, if the acquired language is actually useful for me in the future.. Thanks a lot for your suggestions..
