Learn Software as a Service (SaaS) using Ruby on Rails.
The vast majority of the courses listed here on HN.Academy are available
from their providers for free. Many courses offer a completion
certification for a fee. A few courses and specializations require an
enrollment fee. HN.Academy receives a referral commission when you visit
course pages through links on this site and then purchase courses and
completion certificates. If you decide to purchase a certificate or course
the commission does not increase the cost of the course and helps support the
continued existence of HN.Academy which is much appreciated.

Secrets you should have learned before your first programming job
Interestingly, many if not most of these items are covered in CS169.1x  over on edX.
Also, my recent 100-level courses at a continuing education arm of a public university covered 1, 6, 7, 8 and touched on 2 and 10.
In my experience, the most consistent omission is #2 'How To Write'. It's so rare that my own limited, but apparently good enough, ability has been a significant bonus throughout my career.

Which language should I learn?
For a novice, I would recommend the free "Engineering Software as a Service" course, which uses the Ruby language and the Rails framework to teach the fundamentals of web development.
