Hello and welcome to FCC Forum, a community of people helping each other!
In my opinion, all of the courses are good. It depends if you know what you want to start off with, @Ahmad121169 .

Like you, I had no programming of any kind, and I started with JavaScript Basic Algorithms and Data. But, I must state that I have added the Responsive Web Design which I find good, too.

It is recommended to take the courses in the order they are presented in the curriculum, and I think the developers have a better idea of progress and understanding for us newbies.

Happy coding! :slight_smile:

Take them in order, and practice making your own projects. Don’t simply take courses, always have your own project to work on.

Thank you very much for your kind advise, I have one question these all courses are correlated with each other as you mentioned to take the courses in the order it’s presented. Actually I want to start from that course which is in demand eg. “machine learning with python”. I heard python is easy to understand as compare to other languages.

You are welcome to start where you feel you are comfortable. That is one of the great things about freeCodeCamp. They suggest the courses be taken in order, but you can start anywhere. They do not force people to take the courses in order.
Best of fortune on your coding path!

Hello fellow learner! Similar situation here. I think what we need to consider here is how to merge between our preexisting background (you : supply chain) with the new programming knowledge. I believe with your 10+ years experience you can create something that lack in your industry/profession and turn it into a product that benefitted the company you aim for; instead of going full switching career. Best of luck!

@Ahmad121169 You don’t need to worry about it. In my opinion and based on my personal experience, I suggest you take the “Responsive Web Design Certification” course offered by Free Code Camp first. A strong foundation in HTML and CSS is provided by this course, which is necessary for developing web interfaces. It will assist you in comprehending the fundamentals of web development and is suitable for beginners. After finishing that, you can move on to more challenging classes like data structures and JavaScript algorithms. This methodical approach will complement your existing experience and help you develop a robust skill set in programming.
Have fun with coding!
Thanks
