Default Computer Programming / Coding

I'm starting with HTML + CSS.

After, what should I learn? Python, C, C++, etc

I'm using both CodeAcademy & KhanAcademy.

Anyone willing to learn, come here. Anyone looking to help, come here.

if i were you i'd start with python as it's more intuitive and will help you branch out to other areas of coding much much faster.

Thanks One of my exs (I left on good terms) was just fcking around with her for a few months took Python and got an A in it for HS. She's COMPLETELY clueless and I see it in her, so it shouldn't be that hard. But, she took it for three years so lol.

These days HTML/CSS will be useless without also knowing Javascript, or some Javascript framework.

Python will do you well for backend web stuff.

I wouldn't bother with C unless you want to work with embedded hardware.

C++ however has many uses and is extremely flexible these days. Still it will probably be better to start with some other Object Oriented Language before learning C++.

Just wanted to go on the record, I'm self learning. I'm not taking courses. Unless it's an elective maybe. My major will be social work. Should I continue learning this? Maybe it'll look on my resume?

For the record, I have only an associate degree in graphic design from a community college and make a good amount as a self taught software engineer.

In my experience it's easy to get good grades in programming without actually learning how to program. The in class room stuff I did didn't correlate at all to what real world work is like, same goes for a lot of I.T stuff actually. Python is handy to know, a lot of jobs look for that and everyone knows html these days. Worth learning to work with sql too.

No I don't have any certs either.

Although I am taking some classes on Udacity.com right now for one of their nano-degree programs, just trying to keep my skills up to date.

Mhm I see. I didn't necessarily get into my major yet, I'm 4 credits into my BA for Social Work, hoping that I apply for the major and stay above the required GPA. I can still turn back but, I wouldn't want to get into this, I want to do something I love. While I do seeing this being something I love as well, given I grew up around computers, I want to motivate myself to learn by myself.

That, and I had friends in college tell me it's good to know coding and eventually become certified because it'll help boost employers interest in you.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying certifications are pointless. Just saying that you mentioned your friend is clueless but still did well in the classes.

What I mean is you can still learn a lot but I've found it's easy to get good grades but still leave the class not learning a lot if you don't apply yourself or you're not that intelligent/suited to programming. I see it as similar to learning a foreign language, you can have two people take french and both ace the class but at the end of that one may be able to go to france and speaks fluently while the other just learnt how to get through the class.

The only issue I see myself having, is retaining all the information learned. How does one remember all different languages throughout years of applying it? Is it just practice and constant coding? Also, math. I need to review and get better at math, I'll follow it up on KhanAcademy. What are all the maths I require going into this?

You'll never retain 100% of syntax and api for every language on your resume. Google has many good sources to look up such things as you need them.

Obviously if you are using a language everyday and have built several complete bugfree programs in it, you are going to be better with that language, but I feel at this point I can use any language to program, even one I have never heard of before as long as sufficient documentation exists.
