Hi Willemien,

As we always tell our programming students at Mediacollege Amsterdam – start with the basics: HTML (&CSS) and JavaScript. There is a really good website http://www.codecademy.com where you can start your basic training for free. Just start with the step by step incremental build up of your skills by following the Codecademy’s program. Once you feel more advanced you can also start taking a look at http://www.Linda.com tutorials. This way you can start programming from home, in your spare time, on your own computer, for pretty much no costs (you can decide yourself when you want to switch to more advanced levels).
Once you are feeling comfortable with HTML, CSS and JavaScript you will understand the basic principles of programming which you can then apply to all other programming languages, depending on what exactly you want to focus more on (e.g. back end, front end, UX, payment…). Please feel free to contact me anytime if you would like to discuss this further and need more specific advice.

Good luck!
