Default Re: C++ as first language

At my college they use C++ in the intro courses and it seems fine. As long as you don't try to jump in to really complicated aspects right at the start, I'd say it's not much more difficult than other languages.

I may not be the right person to answer though because I learned the basics on my own before college. I learned using a language called Liberty BASIC (which has a free version called Just BASIC) which is meant to be an easy language. I wouldn't recommend it for big projects (you can't even include other source files, so everything has to be in one file) but it's great for learning the basics.
Since you said you know nothing about programming, I'd recommend trying to learn some of the basics before you start class (either using Just BASIC or something else, maybe even something like Javascript or Python) because then you'll be somewhat familiar with the concepts.
