What i need help with:-Which type of programming i should start off(c, c++, etc.)

That's a subject of eternal debate. It would help if you would tell what exactly do you want to create. Like web-apps, OS, games, something else..

-website/ the forum community that will help me learn

This one of course :)

-programs i need to purchase or pirate

pirate?
That's a big no no. For every language I know, there's a free compiler available, so no need to prirate anything.

Hi RiddlerLG , as niek_e said above you really need to decide what it is you want to create. Software, web pages, games programming. One you decide that you are then welcome to enter a world full of confusion/debate as to which is the 'best' language to learn. If you only want to develop your every day applications then consider looking at something like Visual Basic.NET. A google search of programming languages should give you a jist as to what language does what.

Hoped this helped!

I recommend you give Visual Basic.NET a try, its syntax is easy for the beginner and is very user-friendly. Using any .NET language you have access to predefined routines already written for you to take care of those tedious tasks (and sometimes more complex tasks). Thus saving you time writing code you don't really have to worry about and giving you more time to spend learning the language.

For some great (free) tutorials using VB.NET please see http://www.homeandlearn.co.uk/

Good luck - :)
