I'm assuming u are an udergraduate or about to be one, so start with Js route. (HTML as a mark up lang, CSS- styling lang, then finally Js as a prog lang).

Reason: you can easily vitualize ur progress

Js is short for Javascript, it is one of the numerous programming language. To the best of my knowledge, Js runs on every browser. Get the Resources that suit u best (pdf or videos), if u need videos, check youtube. I'd recommend "traversy media (Brad)" or "Netninja" or "devEd" videos.. start with these channels

Warning:
Which ever language you choose, you going to find alot of material out that might confuse you.

Mind you learning a programming language is not enough but your ability to use the language you have learn to solve everyday program is what makes it fun and brings money.

Language of choice
You can pick any language that best suit you depending on what you want from the language. If you have no particular language in mind I did recommend PYTHON it's simple to learn yet powerful.
Most programming language all share the same building block so the concept your would learn in the first language would still be useful should you decide to switch language.

Avoid tutorial purgatory
You are going to see alot of tutorials online and if care is not taken all you would find yourself doing is moving from one tutorial to another.

Learn by building projects
You might not start by building the next facebook. But by the third week of learning you should be able to build little project like how to add two numbers. As you progress and gain more knowledge you build bigger projects.

Lastly programming can be challenging you are going to get discourage at some point. Yes it does happen to every programmer particularly when your program is not giving you the expected output. Don't quit Google is always your friend.

Programmers in the house will do better to advise you. I also want to learn but I don't have money. 19k per month can't do that for me.
Re: How Do I Start Please by MrJavaS: 4:14pm On Nov 19, 2020
If you want to build web apps,start with HTML,CSS then learn JavaScript.

Also learn a backend tech stack like MERN or MEVN or LAMP. You can Google backend stacks and databases. Be ready to rack your brains
