    I should have my husband answer this.  He's a software engineer.  I'm sure you'll get great answers from other programmers out there.
    As someone not in the field,  I would add that be sure to always think ahead to what language is going to be popular next?  Don't go retro.  Mike knows over 12 programming languages. (He started during the Vietnam era!)  There's a few companies who need those old programmers to convert their old main frame stuff, but those are few and far between. As a non-programmer, but author, I'd say look to the app programming. I could never be a programmer; it's way too detailed for me, but my husband loves coding.  I'll have him check in here.  He's had over 40 years experience!

    HTML is the easiest language to learn and provides the basic structure to most webpages so it can be really fun. Its usually learnt together with CSS which provides some styling - both are very easy for beginners to learn and you should be able to pick up enough to create a basic webpage after just a few hours. Try Code Academy for a good place to learn these languages with structured lessons and an active community for support.

      my husband agrees that HTML is good to start with - He says be sure to avoid HTML 5 - It's a step up

      Agreed. It is also good because the industry standard for HTML emails is table-based HTML so that it is displayed correctly across multiple platforms. ex. MS Outlook

    It depends what you really want to do with it.

    If you just want to make a web page: just take some lessons about HTML markup language (http://www.w3schools.com/html/)

    But if you want to earn some money by making apps that look at C#, ObjectiveC or Java.
