I’d suggest you start of easy. Don’t immediately try to do complicated connected projects, since that will be really though. First get comfortable with the programming language of your choosing, and build from there. The only way you’ll really learn it is by correcting the boatload of mistakes you’ll make.
If you get stuck somewhere, feel free to ask for help here, there are always people willing to help out As far as that goes, this is the single most awesome community I know!
Good luck with your future endeavours, and do let us know how it worked out for you.
