Coding. Where to start?

l am completely new to coding and would like to know what type of coding I should start with. I am a retired senior citizen and am just wanting to learn something new.

If you look in the upper left of this page, there is a link, Visit the Curriculum.

This is the curriculum for FCC, focussed on web development. I would recommend starting at the beginning.

It doesn’t assume any programming experience.

The curriculum can seem to move quickly in some parts - don’t be surprised. You are expected to get in the habit of searching and asking question. Googling and asking questions are two of the most important skills a programmer has.


I would also add that this is a very friendly and supportive group - make use of it. No one is going to bite your head off for asking a question.

Appreciate the reply. Do you think that Python is the way to begin, or do you think I should try some other language?

That depends on what you want to do. If you don’t know what you want and just want to learn, it won’t matter much.
