Best way to become a software developer. What would you suggest?

Please help me switch carreers. Where should I start? So many people are telling me to learn HTML/CSS first and others are telling me to pick a language (PYTHON or JAVASCRIPT) and learn it.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I think you should start with Javascript, but in my opinion you have to learn web development first, then learn software development. Because if you take basic learning of programming and problem solving then it can be good. I am telling you from my experience as I am MERN developer with Flutter software developer

Hi! I would suggest you take a look at this Become a Programmer: Foundations Learning Path | LinkedIn Learning, formerly Lynda.com

It shows what you should learn, and it is actually the software engineering curriculum, it’s best to start from the basics to have a clear understanding of what you’re doing, so as not to have any problems later on.

Good luck!
