    I want to begin with learning programming to increase my knowledge about
    security, but I don't know where to begin. Can someone tell me which
    programming language is good to start with, and pherhaps what book
    and/or online guides I should take a look at?
    It would be nice that if I learn a programming language that it
    shouldn't be much work to understand another one.

    I am on Linux and Windows.

    Thanks for the help.
