I started with Game Development, having no previous experience of coding. From there I decided that I liked it and took a college course in Software Development.
The most important thing when starting out is practice. Pick a subject area that interests you and practice it. YouTube can be a great resource for beginner developers, as can the plethora of tutorial sites online.
Another thing you can do in the short term is build a basic website and when you learn new things in FCC, add that into the site you’re building. This can be a great way to reinforce what you are learning.
Also, read other peoples code as often as possible. I regularly spend time combing through Github looking for interesting repositories to see how people accomplish various tasks in the languages I am interested in.
Don’t be afraid to fail either. If you start a personal project and realize you are out of your depth, or that there are some other technologies that you should learn first, then go prepare and then come back.
