Hi everyone. I'm a 21 year old guy, I'm from Italy and I study in a university in Turin. Actually I study things like cinema, theatre and organisations of live events. I know that in Italy I will not have future, so coding is another option that I also like, but I don't really know where to start. I need help to find courses that teaches me language like CSS, JavaScript python Linux ecc... My objective is to become a white hat hacker. Courses free or paid, it doesn't matter. All the suggestions or help will be accepted and welcomed. Thanks in advance for all the answers.

What I have tried:

Nothing, I don't know anything about this work, and i am not an engineer

A good tutorial site : W3Schools Online Web Tutorials[^]

You have to know that you can do pretty much anything in any language, simply some languages are harder for beginners because there is more pitfalls to handle.
You need to master a set of techniques that are the basis of the job and are not linked to a language.

Advices:
- Start with an easy/safe language: VB, Java, C#, not C or C++. I do not recommend to start with Python either because of the usage of indentation.
- Read documentation / Follow tutorials (a lot of them)
- Start with tiny/useless projects, the purpose is to learn programming, not doing something useful.
- Start with console mode programs (no fancy graphics, no mouse)
- Learn debugger (an incredible learning tool)

- A problem ? Google is your friend.
- Learn one or more analyze methods, E.W. Djikstra/N. Wirth Stepwize Refinement/top-Down method is a good start.

There is no shortcut to knowledge, no one can learn for you, you are the only one that can do it.
Remember the exercises and little projects are not here to make something useful, they are here to teach you programming.

My most important part is probably: Learn one or more analyze methods.
