Ali's book is targeted at beginners (see link below). I don't see why D wouldn't make a good first language. If your objective is to learn D, then I don't think learning C or Python is going to be help that much. Obviously if you know C/Python you can learn D more quickly, but I doubt the effort is worth it if D is the ultimate goal.


I will second Craig's recommendation to spend some time going through Ali's book. It strikes a good balance between being an introduction to programming in general, and to D in particular. While I have dabbled in half a dozen languages or so over the years, I find D to be a lot more accessible than many of the other languages I've tried. Part of that comes do the language design (similarities to C and Python) but mostly to the helpful community you will find here. Good luck!
