Where should I start/pickup?

Hey everyone. Brand new to HTS but not completely new to programming. I have some knowledge in both computer and web programming and my college major is information systems focusing on web security. I have tried the basic missions and got past number 6 with some ease.

My question is where should I start off? Obviously I have some knowledge on what i'm doing. I just don't know where to pick up from. Appreciate the help!

Go through the missions. When you find one that you have trouble with, or don't know the answer to, start there.

Ya but my question is what programming languages should I pick back up on. Besides html, what is the next fundamental language I should look into?

It depends, what do you want to do? Would you like to do web based coding? Or things more on the client end? Generally people who come here would prefer to do web based programming, so we give them this order:

HTML
CSS
Javascript
PHP
C/C++
ASM
