Hey computer programmers, which computer language do you suggest right now as a good one to start out learning that will give you a good foundation to branch out into others? The last time I really messed around w/ computing, it was C++, is that still the gold standard?

It honestly depends on what you're looking to do.
Cannot help if we're not talking web stuff! :)

Java and Ruby are the stuff that people hire for these days.

Start with Python. Fast, uncomplicated and powerful.

SAS has a pretty good if smaller market. Most pharma and insurance companies use SAS for their analysis.
Lots of $$ in SAS Pharma programming, and it's easy to learn if you already know how to program.
