Thanks jbennet ive been thinking about that,but on the other hand ive been thinking about going online tutorial but when i started it i couldn't understand.
So ill follow your advice..thank you very much.
Try searching google for some online lectures from a introductory university class. Other than that, books are the way to go, there are a lot of great ones. Tutorials and forums help immensely, but not until you have a bit of a base.
find a friend or ask your parents for a very simple program that they would like to see
* Temperature calculator
* Recipe Program (for saving drink mixes...etc)
* Number guessing game (hi-low game is very simple)
Once you have found an application you think you will enjoy writing, lay out the framework for the app or just dive right in (being new you will probably just dive right in :) )
The most important thing is to get yourself motivated or you will not enjoy what you are doing.
I work with Smalltalk on a daily basis (VERY VERY old programming language)
To help stir the daily boredome of using an ancient language/distro (we are using VisualWorks 1994-95 release) I dig into the innerworkings of the runtime enviornment and innerworkings of the language itself and upgrade /modify the image.
The end result is that I can find something positive in what I do and enjoy the language that much more.
Be motivated, and find a group of people you can talk with about programming.
There is always dani web and we are always here to help within reason :)
