You Should have start with ' C ' language the reason why i am suggesting C is

1 C is the mother of all languages ( it is like first step a programmer take while learning programming)
2 it is the simplest one to try and hand in code

and is you have already learn c language or you have some basic knowledge of coding you can go with java ( or c++ )

also if you are want to start with c the a basic course at coursera would help you a lot.
course link - https://www.coursera.org/learn/programming-fundamentals you can also apply for financial aid if that is the case even there are many more courses to start with.

Thanks

Python hands down.

  • Good job prospects, growing language
  • Easier to learn than most languages
  • Lots of materials available (e.g courses)
Javascripts, also ticks the above boxes, however, Javascript is used for Web Development and not much else (whereas python is a good "all-rounder" language which can be used for almost anything).

Good morning from Greece @RYUZAKI

I love number 4 and I like number 5.

JavaScript is good for Web Dev and Mobile Native apps while Python is good for... many things if not everything!

My wife has, recently, started learning Python from the University of Michigan and she loves it! She didn't have prior coding experience. This is her first time. So, I'm suggesting you their courses.
