Hey, Seong Lee! I know what you mean. Deciding on one language is hard. I've been jumping around a few times myself. I'll provide some resources below, but first, let me give you some tips of my own.

The easiest way to decide what programming language you want to learn first, you have to figure out what to do first. For example, if you want to make web pages, learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you want to make games learn Lua, C++, etc. If you want to... well I think you get the idea.

Anyway, if you don't know what you want to make, there are a couple of things you can do:

  1. Start with an easy coding language such as Python or HTML
  2. Explore the things you can make by coding like games or software.

If the things out there seem bland and boring look at things already invented. Okay, that sentence was really horrible so let me give you an example. What games do you like? Minecraft? Overwatch? Fortnite? All those games probably had some coding involved. So why don't you start coding games?

Do you have a favorite social media spot? Why don't you code something like that! Most of Facebook is coded in PHP, Instagram uses a lot of Python.

I hope I helped a lot... Oh right! the resources. Almost forgot about those. Treehouse has a blog post on programming languages as well as a video. They also provide a video for the Roles in the Tech Industry.

I hope this information will give you a boost and good luck!

All the best,

~Leosa
