Getting Started: How to get the most out of Codecademy

Hi, I was just wondering about computer programming. I would love to go into computer programming in the future but it seems a little overwhelming. How should I start? I just started the Python course and I really love Python! Do I need to take notes on the lesson to refer back to them or memorize them? Is learning a new coding language like learning a new foreign language? How should I go about learning it?

My first programming language was C, I recommend it! Python is too much of an abstraction for you to understand basic concepts of compilers, and programming in general. You should learn how a computer works before everything in my opinion.
