I think you have to start with determining a goal, some kind of application you want or like to create.
Learning to program without a goal (which good well be school assignments) is in my opinion fruitless.

Secondly you've to decide if the application will be an old fashion desktop application or a modern
web application,
or maybe even, it should start as a desktop application and should be easily be converted to a
webappplication in the future.
(btw I mainly write desktop applications ;-)

When you've a goal and a global scope, you can find the right tools: language (Python of course),
IDE, framework, etc.
