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?

Can’t go wrong with Lisp for interactive workflow alone in my opinion. I don’t think I could use a non-Lisp based language at this point. :)
Right?! I’ve been using Emacs Lisp for … less than a year, and I’m already like, Boo, I don’t wanna use Bash!
Janetsh might be of interest, and I’ve been using Babashka for all my scripting needs. :)
