Khan Academy’s Computer programming page has a course summary on the left, and on the right are the chapters for each course, starting with the Intro to JS: Drawing and Animation and its first chapters about an Intro to programming, Drawing basics, and Coloring. After this section, you move on to Making web pages (with HTML and CSS), querying and managing data with SQL, Advanced JS: Games and Visualizations, then Natural Simulations, then making web pages interactive., then with JQuery, and finally you meet the professional. This seems like a very thorough education. The main page shows student examples and how to meet the community of programmers just like you.
