As a rather casual programmer, I still struggle with C. I'd done some useful
little bits of work with the Arduino platform at work, but don't really have the
time to study it in depth - in my own time I'd rather play music :P
However, I had to write a real program in somewhat a hurry as we were replacing
some obsolete kit. I found that Python was absolutely ideal for this. I didn't
use its OO capabilities - again due to learning time constraints, so am sure
it could have been done 'better', but it works and is reliable in an industrial
setting. The icing on the cake for me, was that it only needed a relatively
simple UI, and pygame was ideal for this.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
