Hi all.

I'm interested in learning to program for a living.. :) I was looking for a 
suggestion for a language. I've never really programmed before - but looking 
around, Python looks interesting (mostly because of pygame, admittedly!). Is 
that a good starting language, or is there something that employers would be 
looking for instead? If there are any Aussies reading - is there a good place 
to learn to program? The TAFE courses in my area seem to cover everything BUT 
programming (OH&S, communication, how to use a mouse... :p)..

I appreciate any advice or help! :)
Thank you!
