[sdiy] Programming Language Recommendation

@veronica - I'm looking at things from a general perspective. I don't
really have a specific build in mind. I have always been interested in
programming and recently renewed my general desire to study a language. I
figure that the best application I have is a eurorack module. I think I
would stick with something on the cv side of modular though and not
something that makes/processes audio. I might try to make a sequencer or
quantizer first.

>From the answers so far, I will probably just stick with c++ since I
already have some knowledge with it. I have only learned basics and I am
pretty rusty.

I have played around with some arduino stuff, but I have always felt like
it was a little lacking (or my skills with it were lacking). I would most
like to figure out something with STM32. Teensy is intriguing also.

You all are the best. Thank you!
