Although I am very good with html, css and a little at php,javascript and mysql, i still can't manage to get interested or start learning basic programming. To be honest, i barely know anything about c or c++ since i skipped basic programming and proceeded to learn right away php,javascript and mysql where-in i had a very tough time. My question is if there are any tools/projects/books/tutorials/software/techniques that you recommend and that will hopefully get me interested in learning c and c++ to fill in my gap in programming.

here is the post about that

I'll suggest the book programming in ANSI C by Balaguruswamy and Let Us C by Yashwant Kanitkar.

I second the books mentioned by yashsaxena . Both of the books are top notch
