Programming This forum is for all programming questions.

Well the answer depends a great deal on what you would like to learn. One online resource that I have been using recently is ...

It is a very well written guide to learning how to use Ruby. As with many other programming languages you are able to acquire everything that you need to get started for free, including access to some quality learning material.

I hope that this helps...

Well, there are lots of resources online, but it depends what language you want to use. Python could be a good starting point and there are lots of free online books. Try checking the site for tutorials and books. Another good site is, they have free books for java, c++,C etc.

well, speel, you're entitled to have your opinion. I don't agree.

I think is a really great book for first-time programmers. It teaches things the (imho) right way, and it teaches a simple yet powerful and real-world useful language (python).

Oh, you lied? Shame on you -- chances are you'll probably find some of the chapters of thinkcspy redundant and/or too verbose.

I have tried a number of programming languages and the best i have found is c++, there is a great free tutorial here:
c++ may be a little harder to learn at first, but i think it pays off.

Don't be messing around with all them wacky languages Teach yourself some Perl and you will definitely find yourself performing useful tasks ages earlier than with C/C++.

Everything you will ever need to know about programming is at these three sites ( ok that's pushing it, but pretty darn close):
