    Get the 100 days of Python or a basic Javascript/react course course on Udemy

    if you dont want to spend any money then go to code academy or free code camp (never used em personally but they are popular)

    Go to whatever specific reddit sub for the language you want to learn and see what resources they have.

    imo the most beginner friendly languages are Ruby and Python. Between the two of them I'd recommend Python because its more widely used.

    Benefits: Widely used. There are lots of libraries for it, its easy to read and learn. Knowing python will def make your resume more attractive. Especially if you can showcase things you've built on github

    Difficulty level: Imo its one of the most beginner friendly languages. Great for learning the core fundamentals of object oriented programming

    What you can make: Pretty much anything. Alot of Data guys use it. You can make websites with it using the Django framework, you can use it to write scripts to automate s*** for you.

    I can only speak for my experience but C++ was my first introduction to anything programming in school. I knew I was gonna fail by the second month and ended up dropping the class. A lot of people say its beginner friendly but I personally didnt feel that way.

    imo I would say learning the basic concepts of OOP is the most important thing because the core fundamentals can transfer over between languages. The only thing that changes is the syntax or sometimes some of the terms are different. Like in javascript theres a data type called an array and in python its called a list but they are essentially the same s*** just slighty different syntax. But the difference is nbd if you already understand the fundamentals

    you can learn to build web apps without ever learning C++ but you have to know it if you want to learn desktop applications and games and things of that nature. Like a music DAW like ableton would be made using C++

    How long would it realistically take me to build a basic or website based on learning?

    I couldnt say cause idk your learning style or how many hours a day you put in or how fast you learn.

    Like I know people who have done 3 month web development bootcamps and have gotten entry level jobs shortly after but then theres some who would take like 6 months to a year to learn the same stuff.

    It seems like you're gonna be self learning and imo thats harder than being in a class room with teachers, teachers aids and other students that you can collaborate with in person or on zoom or whatever. But I bet you can find a reddit group or a discord server where people are all learning to code and just treat them like "classmates"

    I need to get onto this NOW because I have tool ideas that folks still haven't made that can be very useful for alot of folks. Also it seems like coding is becoming it's own form of creative expression especially when intertwined with design which I really want to do but f*** being in a technologically backward third world country in Africa sux ass. If I was probably in America or the UK I would get easy access to classes, cheap too.

    Thank you.
    Drop your favs
    Also beginner mistakes I should avoid.
    Also other information you wish you learned earlier.

    Also other information you wish you learned earlier.

    if you want something free the Odin project. I forgot to mention this earlier but this is very highly rated in the community as a course for beginners.

    theodinproject.com

    if you absolutely want to do python I would suggest this
    I would start with this. Not free though
    udemy.com/course/100-days-of-code

    Just do it every day or every other day consistently. Stack overflow is a good site to use when you have questions pertaining to actual code that you're writing. Reddit is full of resources even though the culture of the site is kinda corny. Use it as a tool to ask questions. Maybe find a programming discord.

    You're not gonna learn everything overnight. Just take your time and do it consistently.
