What programming language are you interested in learning?

For your second programming language, you might consider learning Lua and playing with the love2d game programming framework.

I don't want to sound like a broken record but python is cross platform and excellent for beginners. There are many free introductory lessons on python online and some are on youtube.

If you want application type programming there is C, C++ and C#. C programming should be your starting point before the other C languages. As with python, there will be introductory lessons online as well.

Hi and welcome to LQ.
Python could be a good choice for you.

The more details you provide the better the answer will be. What programs do you want to make, what platforms should be supported, how much time do you have to learn ?

have a look there

they seem to have an interesting range of interactive online courses

Python is a nice language to start with. It's well-established and can be used for almost everything meanwhile.

If you're interested in learning all the depths & details, C/C++ is still the mother of all things, but tougher and involving more work as well as more learning. But eventually, it allows you to write even the most advanced stuff as well as things that need to squeeze every last bit out of the CPU, like e.g. data compression, video editing etc., as well as huge projects which deal with large-scale complexity.

Lua is also worth mentioning, a recent shooting star, easy to learn & use.

I would restrict the list to one of those right now, as you're not doomed to learn the totally wrong thing if you decide to go for one of those; they're established and guaranteed to exist for some time at least in the near future. Other languages might vanish or let's say, become less popular over time.

On Mac OS X, objective-C/C++ is quite popular right now.

On Windows, C#/.NET enjoyed a certain boom but if you ask me, it's horrible and won't survive forever..

I'd second that.

You might do well to learn how to use the command line ("cmd" in windows 7) first.
