Main Question or Discussion Point

I've recently decided to really try and learn a computer language for the first time. I've had a standard computer science course that covered C material but I found that language to be overly tedious and absolutely miserable. Matlab was interesting, and I enjoy using it for dynamics and other vector based problems but I haven't tapped into it much further.

I've considered diving into C#, Java, or even Visual Basic. I'm currently a mechE student, so if that helps formulate any opinions I would love to hear them

If you want MechE applications, C/C++ and Basic/VB is useful. Java not so much. I would suggest C/C++.

If you just want to learn a programming language, Java.
