Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first of all I think you have to choose what programming language you want to learn , that is depending on the reason for learning programming (developing applications,web design , game programming ...)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would love to learn game programming, but I feel I need to start with the basics. People tell me to start with Python and C++, but I check those tutorials out and it seems so cryptic to me because I don't know the basics. Are there any "pre" courses I need to master before diving into programming?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0mmmm , thats right you must learn an easy language first and C++ , Python is very good for you . but you must find an Theoretical introduction before writing codes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But like you said, it is better to not worry about the programming language to start with, you need to get the basics first, that link should be very helpful. in addition, youtube and google are your best friend.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would recommend Stanford University's Open Courseware beginners course "Programming Methodology, CS106A" http://see.stanford.edu and click on the courses button.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'd recommend at starting with a lower level language like C. Jumping right into C++ might be easier to catch on, but you'll be missing out on some of the fundamentals of programming. I also feel object oriented languages might not be the best to start out with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0MIT and Harvard have some excellent resources. https://www.cs50.net/ is a great course that teaches intro to computer science. Feel free to check it out. He video archives every lecture.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First you should learn about Logics and Algorithms  so you can figure out how to think like a programmer. Some general info about computers and hardware is also pretty handy  you gotta know what's the machine before working with it. After knowing the basics, then you should read a bit about the many languages out there. I started with C# but hey, I'm crazy. :p Maybe... Python? It's your call. Then, after selecting what you want to learn, get a compiler, check the links above  if you have an iPod Touch, an iPhone and/or an iPad, you might wanna check iTunes U ... and practice! By the way, I'm looking for a Programming study group, let me know if you want to study together.
