So I've been wondering, with the changes to the curriculum pupils will start learning about coding/algorithms… 

However, should they learn a particular language, like Ruby because it's new and online… C++ 'cos it's low level and on a device or… is all that irrelevant, they should learn a language and basic programming skills which will mean they can go to any language they want?
