I have chosen to start with Python, I love the cross platform capabilities. I have picked up a good book:
"Python Programming for the absolute beginner", Michael Dawson.

It is very clearly written, with game coding examples used..which is a lot of fun! I think I'll be moving quickly through this book, so others will follow...

I am glad to hear it is going well. We took kind of a gamble on that book, it is excellent to hear that it is working out for you.

The primary purpose of the DATA statement is to give names to constants; instead of referring to pi as 3.141592653589793 at every appearance, the variable PI can be given that value with a DATA statement and used instead of the longer form of the constant. This also simplifies modifying the program, should the value of pi change.
