My brother wanted to share some of his music on the net, but didn't want the WHOLE net having access. He uploaded some tracks to his ftp folder and I wrote a cgi script that would first ask the user, in the browser, for a key code then, with the correct key, print out the list of tracks and buttons that could get the files from the non-public directory. It was very hard for me to do, but seeing it work in the end was amazing!

That's what makes software development so cool - you can always be proud of what you coded (which is one of the reasons why coding is my job today).

As I am learning some Python at work currently, I can say it is a good start for learning (I began learning with C and it was very hard - I should have started with something easier). It is easy to use, but gives you the basic understanding for other programming languages.
