HTML & CSS
Keep your projects small and simple. You will learn more from starting and finishing simpler projects than you will out of stumbling through fewer larger projects.
While you're building your projects, don't just focus on the finished product. Focus on the journey. This might sound corny, but the truth is that one of the biggest differences between beginner programmers and expert programmers is the way approach & build up projects in careful steps. You'll get a chance to learn about this in more detail later on, but it's never too late to get started!

Awesome learning environments:
- Khan Academy - Interactively build cool websites from day 1. This environment is perfect for getting started, but do move on to Glitch as soon as you're comfortable.
- Glitch - Use this tool to develop your final projects. It is a little more challenging up front than something like CodePen, but prepares you for developing locally (on your own computer) and will grow with you (it is capable of running fullstack Node apps). It also provides convenient live hosting to show off to your friends.
