Without any background in programming I would suggest learning Python first. And think of programming more like a simple routine of steps. I first learned programming PLC's but that's machine control but still has same concept. The good thing about Python is very little syntax. Good luck and just take it a step at a time. What really helped for me was when using the IDE I used the debugger with breakpoints and stepping through the program to see exactly what was happening. Best of luck.
