Hey @girluser , great question. I think everyone sorta goes about it differently, but below is what I did.

  1. Started with HTML/CSS on freeCodeCamp.
  2. Then started messing around with the basics of JavaScript, Ruby, and Python. They are different, but the very basics (functions, loops, booleans, arrays) are all the same.

freeCodeCamp is a great resource. I also learned HTML at Codecademy, since they have a free course on HTML5.

Some people will skip HTML/CSS and go straight to a language, which is fine as well. One tip I'd have though is pick one language and learn that.

Happy learning!
