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."

I see several problems with this approach. One is that it is important that children will be taught English starting from an early age - as early as possible.

Has this author ever left the small island on which he was born and grew up ?
