What the best coding language

I’m teaching a coding class with ages 8-14. (They know nothing about coding)I want to know what the best, easiest, and funnest coding languages would be for these kids.

  • Java
  • hmtl
  • Python
  • C+
  • pygame
  • Others → Put it in the comments below

C would be a good one, even though it’s not the easiest, it lets you learn a lot and appreciate modern languages. FYI HTML’s not a programming language it is a Text Markup Language. Also when you said C+ did you mean C++ or C#?

Pygame is a library, not a language

Pygame is a library in Python.
I feel like javascript should be there (probably with HTML).
IMO, Java would be the least fun (and one of the hardest) languages to learn (especially for those ages).

It really depends on the motivations. If they want to create something cool, then Javascript and HTML for websites and graphics would be best. If they want something easy, then most of the statically typed languages might be too much. If they want to learn coding, I’d say Python is best for that (and pygame would be for Python graphics).

the best programming language of all time is DPM (direct proton manipulation) in which the user ascends to a higher plane of existence in order to directly manipulate the electromagnetic signals to cause state changes within a computer :100: real

I don’t understand? DPM is a coding language?

hold on actually… the runner up is definitely ඞmolang because you have to have a simply higher level of the understanding in order to know what
