I started to learn programming in high school and they taught us C. It felt a bit complicated, focusing more on memory management than on algorithms, but I didn't know about anything else and I was really interested so I went with it. After that, the first programming class in university (that had no prerequisites) was also about C. By then I knew about other programming languages, especially Python, and seeing people with no prior experience struggling I started to ask myself if Python would be a better first language.

As a biased person who learned Python as their first language, I agree. :)
