I'm sortta new here I have been a member for a while but have not partaken in any discussions. Not out of rudeness but because I have no idea where to start. Everything I know about programming I have taught myself, it was very difficult figuring out what the heck a variable was in relation to programming when most Programming books are for people who can afford to go to College for this sort of thing.
But like I said in the title I am Disabled and have been for a very long time(21 years). I have tried going to College but my health failed me and now I can't go back. Programming could be my only chance for a real job and a source of income I can be proud of, to me recieveing a disability check is a humiliation not a real help at all.
Problem is I don't know enough to get where I want to go, I need help on the real basics of programming. Anyone can pick up the latest version of the easiest to follow book on learning a programming language, and still be lost from the first to the last page if they don't know the relations between the english uses of words and concepts and the context they hold where programming is concerned. For instence what is a tuple where programming is concerned or even english for that matter I have no idea. I have some vauge idea of what pointers are but having no knowlage base to build upon I'm lost.
In short I need a tutor whith a lot of patients that is okay with the knowlege that I cannot afford to pay for their help. Someone that can point a blind(no I'm not blind)man in the right direction. So if any of you feel charitable please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and thank you very much.
