Saving the Programming Princess

Came across this post today, and I wanted to share it. No surprise Javascript is the most popular language right now. Just look at the barrage of frameworks and abstractions out there. I personally love Javascript as it allows me to prototype quickly, but I do feel the pain of its growth.

The article is a great overview of the language Battle Royale, but the comic specifically is priceless. The Javascript panel is spot-on, and the PHP one just makes me sad 🙁

What programming language should you learn first?

or just skip to reading the comic: Git the Princess: How to save the princess in 8 programming languages

So, what do you think ?
