You are new to programming or new to the website?

If you are new to programming, pick a scripting language, these are the popular ones I know:

  1. Python, my favorite, very good if you want to quickly do something, very easy to use and setup and everything and especially beginner friendly, used for many more other things, such as machine learning, data analysis, automating tasks, basic game development, and a very popular interviewing language. Here is a book I would suggest to you, what I used to learn:
    https://automatetheboringstuff.com/

2.Javascript, a language I used to use very often too, mainly used for web development, but I know many people who use it for other stuff. Again, very easy to use, and beginner friendly. You don't even need any installation to get started. I recommend these tools for learning JavaScript, which I both used to learn:
https://editor.p5js.org/
The online editor you can use, just run with a singly click. p5.js is a library designed with a canvas, so you can use it for making graphics. And the channel I would suggest you watch who uses this, the one and only coding train. Here is the playlist you should start with:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HerCR8bw_GE&list=PLRqwX-V7Uu6Zy51Q-x9tMWIv9cueOFTFA
He also has a very awesome channel, so after you go through the playlist, check his other videos too, he is awesome!

  1. Ruby, I personally never used ruby, but it is another scripting language, similar to python. All I know is that some person didn't like python, so they recreated their own language called ruby. It is mainly used for web applications, but also used for many things that python is used for.

Now, if you are new to repl.it, then here is basically all you need to now to get started:

To create a new program (or which they call, a repl), simply just hit the "New repl button". It will bring up this screen, where you should just pick the language you want to use, and give your program a name. Pretty simple. Repl.it also has forums, which they just call "talk", which you can find here:
https://repl.it/talk/all
To make a post, just click on the "add a post" button. This about all I know.

Hope this helped!

Python is well-known for being very user friendly and easy for beginners to start using. It's where I started, and it works really well. I'd suggest learning Python first, but you could also learn another low-level language like simple HTML.
