    I am applying for jobs, but due to my lack of confidence in CS I am somewhat limited in the roles I can apply to. Which programming language should I try to focus on and where to look for resources?

    I’d recommend learning Python. It is widely used in industry. It is one of the easier languages to learn, and it has a simple syntax compared to Java or C++. I’d recommend learning Python using Lynda.com. Lynda.com is free with a university login and offers over a hundred Python courses. There are also plenty of other online resources such as Codecademy.

    I would have to agree with Owen. Python was my first experience coding and I thought it was a great language to start with because it is simple syntax and easy to use. I would recommend taking an introductory course either online or at school to get started. Khan Academy is a cool free option for quick tutorial videos

    I agree with the above two replies but would also like to add that R is a very useful tool for data handling and analysis. While it might not be the first language I would recommend that you learn, I definitely think that you should have it in your arsenal of programming tools. Swirl-package and data camp are great tools to learn R.
