I hope you fall in love with programming and decide to continue with it!
KB recommends the following next steps:
I will say try to learn Java this is the base of almost all modern languages out there.
Afterwards. I will suggest learning Ruby or Python.
Moreover, try to participate in local hackathons and such. This will give you exposure.
Kim recommends the following next steps:
For me, I actually started learning programming skills through playing Minecraft. If you are not aware, the PC version of this game has many mods which can add many interesting things to the world of this video game. One mod that helped me learn was the mod Computer Craft. This mod adds programmable computers into the Minecraft world, as well as programmable robots that can perform many different tasks using a language called Lua. Lua is a very simple and straightforward language, and a really good language if you are looking to learn programming. There's some really neat things you can program these computers to do, and there's a really good community of people around this mod where you can ask questions.
After getting a taste of programming through that activity, you can take things a step further and begin writing your own mods for the game. This requires knowledge of the language Java, and it's where I first learned how to use this language. In the IT industry, Java is widely used, so having skill in this language goes a long way in making you look much more attractive to recruiters and hiring managers.
I dare say that without learning about programming through Minecraft, I likely would not have the job I have today. If you like video games and are looking to learn programming, I definitely would recommend Minecraft and Computer Craft, as it's a fun and easy way to get your feet wet.
What an exciting field - hope you continue to pursue it and Best of Luck to you!
