    I'd learn basic programming first. Or BASIC. No just basic.. The hard part is finding something interesting and motivating. Javascript can be satisfying to start with.. but it's hard for me to really say about this, since it was so long since I got started, and when I did it was in a world without access to documentation, starting on an Atari 8-bit w/ BASIC, and later on a IBM PC with Turbo Pascal, then Turbo C. The world today has little in common with those days...
