I would start with creating websites.
(Original post by non)
I really want to learn how to program software or how to create websites this summer holidays. So what do you think I should try and learn first and which language? Because I'll have lots of spare time and I want to aim to one day create my own business.
Why? Because it is a basic place to start, and your work can yield useful results even as a early beginner.
Neither HTML nor CSS are programming languages, but I would start with them. They will enable you to make good looking, static web pages (you have to type out all the content).
If you disagree, that's fine, but can you at least leave a comment explaining why what I said is so horribly incorrect?
I strongly believe that most people who decide they "want to learn to program" will fail unless they have a useful task they can actually achieve while doing it. Building a website is an easy way of getting useful results, which encourages people to continue.
