Suggest tracks/programs for pre-coding bootcamp preparation? I'm a beginner
To get my head around programming lingo/logic/syntax/etc that I will need to qualify for a coding bootcamp (and just as important, to form a proper foundation so I can succeed once I'm in a bootcamp), what other programs or tracks would you guys suggest?
Thanks in advance.

I think it's important to keep in mind that programming languages are like a carpenter's tools- each is useful in different scenarios, depending on what you're trying to accomplish. I feel it's a good idea to do some research into what languages commonly perform what tasks, and then identify which tasks you may be the most interested in doing yourself.
In the end, regardless of the language you opt to learn, if you're specifically looking to get into web development, HTML and CSS is a great place to start because at least some knowledge of them and their lingo are going to be critical in installing interactive features or having it communicate with the back-end. Best of luck on your coding journey!
