I decided I wanted to learn programming recently, mostly as a hobby and I looked around on where to start and got the impression that python is a good beginner language. However I would like to start learning C++ because of its versatility and widespread use.
Should I bother learning python first or is it completely different from C++ ?
And if I shouldn't then how should I go about learning C++, or is there another beginner language which has more in common with C++ ?
PS, If anyone knows any concise beginner tutorials or good resources in any of those languages I would be eternally grateful for a link.
PSS. Before anyone recommends learning html before a programming language - I already do
