Order of tracks I should do? Web dev / CyberSecurity

Hello, I'd wish to learn how to make a proper website, but I don't know which tracks to start out with.

After that, I'd like to learn some programming languages used for cyber security.

So is there any specific order I should do? Front-end Dev course, and after what?

Hi Ovidiu,

You could probably go with any route you'd like without going wrong. I remember worrying about this thing myself when I started out, but now with experience, I can tell you this: Go with what you believe you would enjoy the most first. They will all take you through the basics needed first.

I hope that helps, enjoy your learning!

I would go with what stjarnan said. Choose Front end since that is what you are interested in.

For the cyber security items, you should focus on lower level languages such as C and Assembly. If you want a treehouse course, python might be a good bet. I don't think cyber security experts use as much programming as you think. There are a lot of tools out there to use. Try installing Kali Linux or Wireshark.
