If you have no previous experience in programming, I would definitely recommend starting with Python. Because it is:

  • Easy to learn, grasp
  • English like syntax
  • Tons, megatons of resources online

I usually start with Youtube videos. Besides just reading a tutorial, video tutorials make you feel like someone is teaching beside you. It makes me feel like that person is near me and teaching me in person. And yet, you can see live examples of teaching and a working demo.

Older languages like C/C++, Java, or even maybe Javascript may feel overwhelming after a short while when you start learning. All those tiny details like various brackets, semicolons, commas, quotes, double quotes, escape signs make you weary as a beginner learner.

Python is the best option for you.
