What program do I use to start a code adventure?

I am brand-new to coding and have just gone through the introductory courses on HTML, CSS and JavaScript and am now attempting one of the beginner code adventures for practice. The adventure is asking me to make a virtual business card and has provided me with a zip file of images to get started, but makes no reference as to exactly how to get started. Should I download some sort of program to write code? should I go to a website creator? Microsoft Word? I have absolutely no clue. How do I actually get started here??

If you're familiar with using the workspaces from following along in the courses, creating a new workspace might provide the perfect environment for the code adventure. You could also possibly save some time if you start from one of the course workspaces that had a related project and modify it.

If you prefer to work locally, there are certainly better tools for web development than "Word". One popular one is covered in this workshop: Introducing the VS Code Text Editor.
