Where to start?

Hey everybody, I recently joined Snapzu and this tribe stuck out for me, I wanted to ask some more seasoned programmers where I should go about starting learning how to program. Thanks for the help!

    It's difficult to suggest a starting place without knowing what you'd like to do.

    Do you want to create mobile apps? websites? games? enterprise application? databases? etc

    If you don't really know what you want to do I think a great starting place would be Codecademy all you need is an internet connection on a PC or laptop. It's a great introduction to web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript etc)

    It will introduce some basic concepts and may enable you to decide what you'd like to study next.

    I think starting with Hello World would be appropriate for this :-p

    Without knowing what you want to work towards programming and what your past experience is, it's pretty tough to give relevant advice. Assuming you have no experience whatsoever and that you just want to make "stuff", I'd recommend picking up an intro book to either Java or C#. Go through the lessons thoroughly and play with the exercises until you feel comfortable that you understand how everything works. From there, make "stuff". If you aren't ready for your projects yet, continue learning new technology that takes you in the direction you'd like to go.

    Most importantly, have fun!
