Hey Jason,
Where to begin? Tough question. Like a lot of things, the field is enormous.

Realistically, many people start with web development. Even little kids start by making simple-single web pages adding pictures, different colored print, etc... Even if you don't know anything about programming, HTML and CSS are (IMHO) good places to start. The ideas are simple and won't get you frustrated or overloaded right away.

Try: ​freecodecamp.org
What? Don't like F.C.C.? Ok find another site. There are tons. Just don't run out and spend 10K on a programming Bootcamp yet. Look around, watch Youtube, read dev.to or blogs, buy a book or two.

Extra:
Some still may say start Python or Javascript, C or X... But I say you still 'gotts-ta' know some HTML and CSS. Besides, you can learn the basics pretty quickly, THEN move on...

Extra-extra: ;))
I suppose it's possible; you could find web pages boring. Then I would still say that HTML is everywhere. Everything is turning to the web, EVEN app development. People that used to develop iPhone apps alone are now putting the equivalent on the web so that more people can use their stuff. Even Biology, scientific articles, and teaching material are on the web. I think you get the picture.

Then come back and ask more questions. LOL
