If you are starting to learn to code, you can almost pigeonhole yourself depending on what coding language you pickup first.
Many have their own opinions on what to start with first that range from ease-of-use, to size of the community and breadth of available documentation.
This is my two pence on the matter:
Let's break this down for you.
Just take a look at the stats in UK alone. The thing about salaries for developers, is that you advance in skill so quickly that you can expect to be at the upper end percentile for salary expectation within 2yrs.
Starting salaries are quite high too.

That brings me onto my next point.
Don't just take my word for it, see for yourself
Not only is earning a high income common for developers, everybody wants them.
A true sign of how in demand we are is to look at the many new services that are advertised to you on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
That's ground proof!
Once you wrap your head around all the base terminologies (const, let, var, functions and if statements), you'll be well on your way to writing code autonomously.
Luckily, there is a growing culture of writing code that is "clean" and that means, for beginners at least, picking up code is become extremely easier because developers are making a conscious effort to write code that is easy to understand.
I just feel it's best to learn what's in demand first (i.e. line your pockets up first) then venture out onto the other languages to diversify your skills.
