New to coding, any recommendations on which certification I should do first?

I am absolutely new to this stuff and was wondering if you all had any ideas on which certification/course I should do first, was thinking on doing “scientific computing with python”.

hi @arandomusername88

This is a VERY broad question as the possibilities are endless and depend on what you eventually want to do. I believe Python or JavaScript are both good first languages, that being said I’m fairly new myself. I recommend getting on Youtube watching some videos to get a general sense of things. It also matters to a degree what your reason to learn is, if its to get a job maybe choose something in demand in your area. If its for a hobby and you know what you want to build, maybe research what language is best to build that. In general python would be a great introduction to programming. Hope this helps if anyone with more experience feels like chiming in feel free to correct me lol

For FCC, the usual recommended course is top to bottom.

The Python stuff (which starts at that cert) could be a starting point, but it assumes some experience with programming outside of Python.
