    The Rust Programming Language

    Lastly, you said that you would like to learn for free. Luckily, nowadays (probably almost) every programming language comes with an official handbook or a set of tutorials, e.g.: * TypeScript - https://www.typescriptlang.org/docs/handbook/intro.html * Rust - https://doc.rust-lang.org/book/ * Python - https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/ * etc.

  • W3Schools

    W3Schools Full Offline Version

    There is a solution that doesn’t require you to download any new programs or require you to have permission to execute arbitrary code on the computer though. W3Schools has lessons and an editor built right into the web browser. This used to be limited to javascript alone because that’s what the browser knows how to run, but with a little black magic, they seem to have found a way to execute all sorts of programs safely within the confines of the web page. I would try starting there with Javascript if you are interested in making things that run on the web, or either C#, or Python if you want to make games or other programs that will need more access to your hard drive.
