    As the title says, I want to get my feet wet. I have been missing it for quite a time now. If someone can help me that which way should i go. I have learnt graphic designing and done it for long time but could not focus on coding at all. But I see it a vital thing for the future.
    So, guide me the right and fruitful way please.

    Thanks

    This post talks about different languages. http://lifehacker.com/which-programming-language-should-i-learn-first-1477153665

    You can find tutorial series on youtube by searching ____ programming language tutorial playlist. This is one I found for C programming language.

    You can try out Code Academy, but I didn't like it very much. https://www.codecademy.com/

    If it's web related, you could take a look at w3schools.

    Or, as has been mentioned already, Youtube has tutorials on just about every language imaginable.

    Well, I my advise would be to decide what you want to code first. Do you want to make websites? Or maybe mobile applications? After deciding what you want to code you can get started with some programming languages like C#.(I believe starting to learn programming with C# is the best path to go, but that's not the point here).

    Web development is really hot right now and you will have no trouble getting a job in web development. If you are interested in web dev I would suggest getting started with C# and then moving on to ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET Web Api.(You can also use Node for the server-side, but that's also a talk for another thread). After getting the hang of things, most likely you will have to also learn some front-end framework(like Angular2, ReactJS, etc), not to forget you will also need HTML and CSS.

    As I mentioned there are tons of free courses and really nice books that will get you started.

    I would say start with what you want to build and then going from there to what language - what you need to do within that langauge ect - that helps keep you motivated.

    Codecademy Pro is good for diving into it. Treehouse is great when you are starting out. They are both around $20 a month. If you utilize it, it's worth every penny.

    I'd endorse Code Academy, it's very useful and the tutorials have a good way of relating the material while giving you hands on experience.
