Hi DizzyFrogger, It's great that you like python! As for coding, a few good starters are

  • HTML/CSS/JS
  • C++

If you want to have fun, you can learn esoteric languages like LOLCODE, Emoticon, and BrainF(hurts your brain, basically, better for later...).

Hope it helps,

Hello @DizzyFrogger, being serious here, what languages do you want to code in? You can choose from a huge list HERE. If you want to get a start, repl.it is a great community. Problem is, you aren't going to head that way if you are just going to be silly! Trust me.

If you are a beginner, here is what a recommend:

The above will help you get a grasp on both web languages and programming languages and can get you ready for more complex languages like Java, C++ or NodeJS (which is basically javascript but server side instead of client side).

But this doesn't mean you can't do the languages above. If you can do them, go ahead! No one is going to stop you (maybe except your parents DX)! Just remember, if you need help, you are in probably one of the biggest community of developers!

I guess the last thing I can say is

:P

Judging off your profile info, you like Python. That's great! Python is a really good language to start out on. Although if you don't like Python and just tried it out, there are many other languages available.

Quick tip, one of the biggest things you need to know as a programmer is how to ask a question properly. Many younger devs do not understand how you should, and your question here is a perfect case. One should not simply ask other people first, being a developer means thinking for yourself, and that means you will use outside resources a ton! I personally love StackOverflow. I would recommend from this point on, you try to figure stuff out on your own before jumping to asking quesitons.

Coding is very fun if you're made out for it, but it can be very daunting. Don't look at it as learning to code, but learning to solve a problem. I would recommend you watch a crash course on whatever language you want, and then try to solve something simple. Problems that you have are definitely the way to go, because those you can understand best.

First, you have to learn a language, a form of code that the computer and you both understand. Then you have to get good at it, and then you can code. I would recommend starting with Python. You can use it on repl.it. To start learning, see https://realpython.com and https://python.org.

What language do you want to learn?

No, he means code language. There’s JavaScript, Swift, Ruby... And lots more! @DizzyFrogger
