General Development "What makes programming languages are suitable or unsuitable as introductory languages? Which languages are better learnt first and at which order? And why what the masses think is the most suitable introductory programming language is not in fact that. This paper examines several approaches to which programming language is the best, and afterwards gives several useful relations for which languages should come first. Finally it gives a final verdict, defends it and then gives some other good food for thought."

Ruby would be the best I believe. It's very clean, has every OOP concept in it, and doesn't contain a lot of "programming in the large" boilerplate code. Definitely the best of the lot.
