If you aren't already familiar with html, css, and Javascript, start there. Then you can move on to more advanced languages and concepts. HOW TO THINK LIKE A COMPUTER SCIENTIST, is my typical go to suggestion.

I believe https://freecodecamp.org teaches html, css, and Javascript. It's open source (and free software, I think?), although it links to facebook and is kinda centered around programming for monies.

Well of course, math logic, but not computation. Math logic is just a fundamental part of programming. I'm a high school dropout and horrendously bad at math, specifically computation, but the logic is simple enough to wrap my head around.
