#TeachTalk first programming: In 1997/98, I started my journey being an application developer as a HTML programmer – it is not really a programming language. it helped me to kick start my programming journey, If you are new, this many not be bad place to start. All you need a text editor like Notepad. If you do, start with HTML5. It has a lot of improvement over previous generations of HTML. NOTE: these days HTML page are created on-fly. That is not what you want as a new developer.
