I've never been big on programming, and I think it's about time I start.

I think I'm gonna start with Python, unless you guys have any other suggestions and why?

Also, what is the general approach to start? Should I have a general idea on what I want to build, or learn the general library first?

Python is solid. I would definitely recommend it.

Also, don't get stuck on fancy UIs - most of what you'll be doing involves command line. The GUI is just there to help users access what's going on in the background.

I always recommend C#. It is a more solid representation of what you will see in a professional field. Although you may not ever use it professionally, i think that's important in a first language. And at the same time spares you memory management until you can get a hang of code. After that i suggest moving to full blown C++, which isn't a big step from there.

Note i do this for a living.

I wrote a guide for it based on this (and other) recommendations i have given people.
