    • If you want to die a horrible death, start with C++. I'd start with something like Python, as it's relatively a high-level programming language with lots of online documentation, or Unreal Script (mainly because of the same reasons, but you get an awesome video game engine as well). If you really are just interested in how typing stuff can produce something that looks cool, HTML/CSS are pretty much plain English and are easy to learn in a matter of hours, if that. Then you could delve into some more complicated stuff. Programming can and will be a long path that requires commitment and dedication. Good luck!

    • If you're going to start learning to program, DO NOT START WITH C++. You will be far better off learning a high-level language which conforms-to and enforces OO, is not loosely/duck typed, exposes you to low-level array manipulation, etc... like C#.

      • Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 express is free and lets you work withh C++, C#, visual basic, and a few other things as well.

      • I'm in the middle of a programming class geared toward engineers right now. So far it's only been C++, but we're about to start MATLAB. I really like it because it makes you think your way around a problem. If you like problem solving, it's definitely worth checking out.

      • This should help a bit I think. I had the same question too.

      • Yeah, learning how to program in Binary would be horrific. Start with C++ or Java, there's plenty of online tutorials that will guide you through the basics, and free compilers and such that will bring your creations to life.
