I'm a 16 yo who's interested in computer science. Where do I start?

I know most kids who are on the road to doing something with IT are already coding by 10 or younger. I barely know anything yet. I have no idea where or how to start. Are there any free apps I can download that will help me learn to code? Or any books that the libraries might have? Thanks.

    java, javascript, note++, html, Visual Basics. Most of the coding is learned in college, but you can start by buidling a website to learn the components and concepts of coding.

    Make an appointment with your counselor. You could discuss with the reference librarian how to find good lessons.

    All resources are online nowadays. Just look up "getting started with computer science" and you'll find stuff on google. Oh, btw, Google is your best friend as a programmer, get used to using it!
