plote: I would like to assist you. If you really want to learn programming, then you have to forget about this language or that language. They are really the same. What you see as language , is just surface language,or abstractions. Nothing special. The way to go is to just choose one, the one with great online community, and a lot of readily available materials online. It should be free and open source, unless you have deep pocket. Never do copy and paste, carefully read the basic syntax, and try implement basic stuff on your own. Anything you fancy. Fall back to community when the going gets tough, and try always to read beginners' threads in your chosen language. Some day, you will start answering some of the questions.
In programming you will be needing data stores and ways to access them. So, watch out for sequence(vector, array, list) and hash table. Also remember sort and search algorithms are everywhere. Regular expression carnations; match, split, concatenation for strings.
If you are able to wrap your head the above algorithms and data structures, you can really carry task in any programming language. Finally , remember that you have to read source codes for you to become an expert.

This is my 50 cents

Re: I Want To Learn Programming. Which Language Should I Start With? by HARDDON: 7:50pm On Jan 06, 2013
Wow! Dis is just great. §☺̣̣̥̇ kul to know that great ρρℓ like these that are willing to share freely what they might have acquired with some huge sums( to learn java @ NIIT is noting less than 150- 200k. ) .

Kip up the gud works. And hey, those guys @ edX are off tha hook. I'd recommend all newbies to join up with Learning programing under HAVARD cos they are basically gono touch on most of the programs.

Make sure you go through the thread from page 0, I think you can find answers to mostly all your questions from the previous posts.

very possible... codecademy.com is a good way to start, how long and skill level all depends on you, but you must know some very basic aspects of the computer
