    From what coding language should I start? I don't want to drop myself into "deep water" because I will not understand anything.

    I want to get into coding. I mostly want to create simple apps for PC that would do simple things (for now) and website coding.
    I also want to learn to code so I can create homebrew for Wii U.

    I want to get myself into this world we call coding. I want to experience i atleast once in my life.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Python is pretty good. Java also allows you to learn a higher or lower level programming language pretty easily, although some people don't like it. I can't confirm this as I haven't learnt either, but am relying on a friend's knowledge. Seems like the previous poster also mentioned Python and Java, so I'd say go for it :D

    At your current screen. And in heaven
    I think you should first learn about diagramation. And then it's easier, I think. That's what a friend of mine said to me (and he studied that kind of things)

    It's widely used, and you can make lots with it. From simple programs that runs on many platforms, to games.

    I've been trying to be selftaught with programming, as I wan't to be a Game Designer, so I decided to see for myself.
    Thig is that, I got overwhelmed with too many options, and I ended all exhausted and really, really desmotivated about this.

    I tried with Java, with Javascript, C++, Phyton... but they seemed way tooooooooo technical and "very specific" for me.

    Then, with Unity, I began to test and learn with C#, and it's been pretty fun.
    Very easy to catch, and I presume it's very versatile for what I want to do.

    Once I learn C#, I'll pass to Java, then Ruby on Rails, and finally for Python.

    Hopefully, in 3 years I'll suceed with at least 4 or 5 programming languages.

    Some of these posts are really good. Keep in mind that a programming language is just a tool to a goal. If you really want to dive into Wii U development I suggest learning C although it won't be easy for beginners. Consider starting at C# or python since python is very easy compared to C or other strongly typed languages. Also if motivation isn't that strong for you, consider trying out web bootcamp programs or online courses. There are several free alternatives to try out like https://edx.org and https://www.udacity.com/.

    +1 on C#
    with it you can do simple apps based on templates using Xamarin
    or full-on production ready games with Unity

    the syntax is simple enough and a bit more strict, not as "fluid" as other languages. this might seem draconian when you have no idea why your code won't compile, but it's better for learning upfront, rather than your program crashing at run-time.

    also, in the long run, you can actually get a broad variety of well-paying jobs if you know C#

    and lastly, going from C# to Java is very very easy, so it's almost a two-fer
