I've been wanting to get my feet wet in learning a programming language for the longest time, but I have absolutely no idea where to start. I've heard that C++ is a good place to start, as it can open doors to a lot of things. Can anyone suggest an online course, tutorials, eBooks that I can start with? I can't stress enough about how it has to be for ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS with no previous knowledge of coding/programming. Any help would be awesome! Also - if any experienced programmers are bored, and are looking to become a mentor, feel free to add me on Skype or PM. Edit: I just realized this is in the wrong section. My bad.
