Start learning JavaScript. But learn me warn you. Mastering a language can take about two year of consistent writing codes everyday and learning new things. So if you have that energy then you’re good to go.

By mastery I mean ability to do anything you want with a language and even more.

Isn't it better that he starts learning HTML5 first? It's easier and it could provide him basic knowledge. Then, he could start learning other languages from there;

1. HTML5
2. CSS
3. Javascript
4. Python

HTML five is not a programming language. JavaScript has gone beyond just web interface. The guy can start with NodeJs using JavaScript

You have a point but that's why it's basic knowledge.

Due to the numerous "i want to start programming, which language should i start with" threads on this board i decided to create a thread that will address this issue. I am not a wonderful writer and i won't say i know it all but i will try. I urge every one on this board to correct me where i err an also contribute in whatever way you can to make this thread worth it. I will try as much as possible not to be biased in this write up.

I am not going to go into detail in defining what programming is because i will assume before entering this thread you should already know what programming is. But in summary programming is the act of creating whatever you want with your brain and computer programming is the act of creating whatever you want with your brain and a computer. You can read more from

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_programming

Programmers could also be called software programmers, software developers and other big-big names you can think of.

Feel free to ask your questions, i will try and answer the ones i can my Ogas in the house will help me with those i can't answer

Please every Programmer should try as much as possible to check on this thread once in a while to help answer some questions Newbies would like to ask.

Yes

Can someone help please. I'm using JavaScript

Write a program that uses console.log to print all the numbers from 1 to 100,
with two exceptions. For numbers divisible by 3, print "Fizz" instead of the
number, and for numbers divisible by 5 (and not 3), print "Buzz" instead.
When you have that working, modify your program to print "FizzBuzz" for
numbers that are divisible by both 3 and 5 (and still print "Fizz" or "Buzz"
for numbers divisible by only one of those).

I used the first jframe for questions 1-10 and a next button and another jframe for 11-20 and a back and submit button. now When I have selected answers of the first jframe, I click On the 'next' button to take me to the next sets of questions (11-20). after selecting all answers I noticed that when I click on the 'back' button to take me to the previous page, the answers I selected on the previous page are no longer selected. I have been stucked there for weeks, trying different ways and googling buy still haven't been able to do It. I'm frustrated RN.

Scan through these threads I quoted you. There are useful tips. Use the Internet, as well.

Go to the 1st and 2nd page. There is a language guide on whatever path you're choosing.
I believe you should start with JavaScript first, then later CSS. You could start learning more, after that.

How can I reach out to you?

Languages are best learnt with personal determination. It sticks to you more, than direct teaching. Plus my style may not be the one you grab. You might have your own way of understanding it.
Learning articles also help a lot. You don't need to reach out to me. I believe you can do it, man cool
Would love to learn cyber security.
I believe you start with JavaScript first, then Python. You can start learning more after that. Just be determined. As far as you're truly interested, it wouldn't be a problem learning it.
Check out page 1 and 2 of this thread for some article links.
Use the internet to get more.

Now in the market Python and Java are the most popular languages use in coding, bit for the sake of simplicity i will advice you should start with C to C++ and get the background if coding.
