Hi everyone,

I would like an honest opinion.
I have a beginner level (able to do very small programs) in a few languages such as python, go, C, guile(scheme) and common lisp. I want to pick a language and go deep with it and focus on only one for at least the next 2 years or so.

Should I go for C and then when I become a better programmer change to D?
Should I start with D right now?

The reason I am considering starting with C: since I am a beginner, obvious I will need lots of books, tutorials, videos etc. And I believe C would have more resources and maybe a low level to help with programming in general. And, when I need a more powerful language, I would than learn D. Since you know the good and the ugly of the D programming language I wonder, what you would think would be the best to do right now?

Thank you for your help!

I will go against the grain:

Start with both! Yes! You can do it! You can! In fact, you will do it better! It will be a little harder at first but much faster in the end.

D is C... no real difference, just minor stuff. Things take time to sink in, so if you start D and C now you will be further down the road than if you start D later.

But if you really want to learn to program I suggest you go with Haskell. You can do them all together too but Haskell is like learning Alien while D is learning German.
