I came across a question recently. In general it said,
I want to learn programming, BUT Where do I begin?
I thought back to teaching my grammar-school kids. The pre-teens and teens I saw craved deeper understanding of computers. I sent some to Scratch, and some children picked that up quickly.
Realistically, they did not pick it up right away. The children had tons of questions and problems, but they were not intimated so easily by it. To me this was key to learning.
Still, other students had found making web pages fun. Even 10-year-olds could build simple single web pages adding pictures, different colored print, etc. The message here was if 10 year-olds can do it, start there!
Start with HTML & CSS!?!
Even if you don't know anything about programming, HTML is not complicated. HTML concepts won't get you frustrated or overloaded right away. CSS has its moments but overall can be understood by teens. HTML & CSS are (IMHO) an excellent place to start. They are fundamental skills.
Everywhere I lived, there was usually a free coding meet-up. These groups were usually operated by self-taught coders turned teachers willing to share their know-how. I have seen Meet-up groups with people ages 12 to 60 YEARS-OLD. Meetup.com has loads of computer clubs.
Seek them out
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.
Then when you have more questions, come back and keep asking.
