Easy like BASIC?

Be aware that programming these days is no longer a case of typing in:
10 PRINT "I am bored" 20 GOTO 10
As it would have been under various flavours of BASIC down the years.
These days with total dependence on what's called a GUI or WIMP interface (GUI = Graphical User Interface, WIMP = Windows, Icons, Menus, Pointers), people click on things to get jobs done. You program what happens when a button is pressed, you program what happens when the program crashes, you program how files are used, you program the core logic of the program.
BASIC was something you can pick up the general gist of on a Saturday afternoon. Programming these days you can't do that.

Another option you can consider is Ruby. Like Python, Ruby is a fairly powerful, simple language. Once again there are many online resources available that can be found on Google.
Hope that helps.
