Download an IDE (a powerful text editor) to write your code it. Visual Code Studio
is a great free solution. Alternatively, the JetBrains
IDEs offer a load of extra features if you want to pay for licensing or apply for a free license as a student
We have popular documents for common languages on this page
with separate docs for Node.js
. Python has docs available on their website
. Alongside docs, a good site that walks you through how to write programs is a great idea. We recommend Codeacademy
tutorials from DigitalOcean.
Start writing some code in your chosen language! Start off by working through some tutorials to get a hang of the language with guidance, then look at making your first project unassisted. The best way to learn is by doing, but remember to look for help (via documentation or a Google search) and ask for it if you need it.
Done! Keep writing code, the more you write, the more familiar it will feel to you.
