Python's a nice language to start with, pretty simple and powerful, loads of online tutorials and examples. In the commercial world you'll find C/C++, Java, C# and Visual Basic are popular, along with SQL and shell scripts (if you work with Unix)
You can spend a lifetime learning languages it's how you apply them that matters.
