    Some popular and good languages for beginners to start off with include C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, and Python.

    C and Python are probably the best two computer languages out of the six I listed previously for beginner programmers to begin their studies with.

    If you are using a Mac computer and are interested in coding for Mac consider learning Swift.

    What features does C have that python doesn't have and vice versa?
    A higher language is closer to an abstract concept (what you want to achieve), assembler closer to the hardware.
    provided that time constraint is left out of the equation, what kind of ballpark figures would you give with respect to calculating speed if an abstract concept was to be written in c, python or assembler?

    I believe C has low level feature that a high level language like Python does not. You can code in a procedural style with both languages.

    I believe an abstract concept written in C or assembler may be more in depth and time consuming than Python depending on what you are trying to do. It may just be easier to write your program in an easier high level language like Python if you do not need all that low level precision that C and assembler offer.

    I have heard good things about starting with Python, JavaScript, or C. You can code in a procedural, object oriented, or functional programming style with Python, a procedural or object oriented programming style with JavaScript, or a procedural programming style with C. I am not an expert on procedural, object oriented, or functional programming but I think going about a procedural programming style with any one of those three languages is the best place to start.
