I hope I am posting this in the right section. If not I am sorry.
I have been wanting to learn programming for a long time. I have built quite a few websites. Basic using wordpress. I never understood what exactly was going on behind the scenes though.
I would like to eventually be able to code my own HTML and CSS on my sites. I would also like to be able to create things like a membership section and eventually make different types of programs others can use on their own sites.
I have been learning html and css through codecademy. I figured to start with these two because it I thought it might give me a better understanding of what was going on.
My question is, if you were just starting to learn programming from the very basics, would you start with html and css? Where would you go after these two?
Do you think I am on the right track starting with HTML and CSS?
If you are going to create web pages/web applications then you will be working quite closely with HTML and CSS so even though they are markup languages rather than programming languages they are a good place to start.
