Have very little to zero experience in programming, but really want to develop a skill for it, for developing my career, and just learning something new! Is there a preferred programing language to start off in?
I loved how easy it was to get started on freecodecamp.org, no IDE’s or compilers to install just go, going to finish 1st lesson through. Thanks in advance.
Just follow the free code camp curriculum, at the end of each section (where it gives you a certification) take a small break and make a few small projects with what you have learned.
then move on to the next section.
Don’t try and skip sections, trust me you will need it.

ALSO TAKE NOTES
Python is a great programming language
to start with, backed by many ! I’m learning to program with it myself, and I think you should to.
— it’s easy to use & understand, often thought of as beginner friendly
— it’s a flexible programming language.
— many companies use it, such as Google, NASA , Quora, Amazon, Uber Technologies, Netflix, Facebook, Spotify, & IBM.
— it’s used in many areas of computer science, such as Data Science, Machine Learning, Web Development, Artificial Intelligence, Graphics Programming, & Cyber Security
— it’s simple fun to use!!
