Hi everyone!

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I need advice on the app idea I've been working on. I was laid off from work due to the pandemic and I took it as a sign to work on my app, which I have been delaying because of my day job. However, I've no slightest idea how to code. I've talked to a lot of mobile app developers, but I currently can't afford them. My questions are:

Is it possible/recommended to learn how to code me to at least build an MVP? I am looking at the most efficient way to use my time. I can either learn that or get a part-time job to afford a mobile app developer.

If I learn coding by myself, where do I start? What online tools can I use? What is the best language to learn?

Sorry for the noob questions. Any advice is much appreciated!
