What fo you think, is it still a good idea to learn fortran in order to learn programming concepts?
I don't know what else would be nice...
I only had experience with shell scripting, which is rather functional.
Other languages i considered were dlang, c#, go and rust.
I have no explict application, which bothers me a lot.

    If you want to learn some basic stuff, which can be applied in most languages, C is the way to go.

    Yep, using C will teach you to almost understand how a computer actually works, which will benefit development also on higher level.

    On the other hand, Fortran has the brainfuck of call-by-value-return and the arithmetic if going for it.
