TL;DR - post below your suggestion for a good programming language for an almost-rookie teacher/educator/writer to start using.
More info: I am trying to decide on which programming language to learn. I know my way around HTML and CSS from being active online, but haven’t done much programming apart from this. I write, teach, and work with digital teaching/learning products a lot. In 2021, I think there will be plenty of time for me to start working with programming. I don’t mean just “learn to code” - I mean using the language(s) as an educator/writer/publisher. Libre / open source context preferred. Which languages look like they fit the bill, Lemmy?

If your post is
it’s welcome here!
As an educator/writer/publisher, you might be interested in interactive fiction, so maybe take a look at Inform 7.
To learn a general purpose language, Python would be my first suggestion.
