Any Programmers?

Just wondering if there is any experienced programmers on KTT who could give some advice/tips regarding programming.

Software Engineering is a post secondary field I'm strongly considering and want to start programming.

So any advice? Like, what languages to start with? Best tutorials/books?

I was thinking of starting with C++, Java, Python maybe? Is that not a good idea, too advanced to start with or what? I know languages aren't just a two week book think and your done, your always learning them, gaining more knowledge. I would just like to know where the best place to start for someone like me with 0 programming experience at this point. Anything would be appreciated..

also I think it would be cool to develop some Apps (ioS) /Flash/Indie Games, so any tips on that would be welcome!

Probably won't get any replies but o well!

Oh and if someone knows of a great programming forum/website that would be more helpful to me than KTT, feel free to share :)

I want to learn to program, develop some Apps (ioS), Flash/Indie Games. I'm getting a Mac this summer. What language should I learn first? Also do programmers make good money ?
its impossible to jump into apps right away tbh

Objective C (Used for iOS) is pretty complex and you cant learn it as your first language.

Try C++ first (if you're having difficulty there, C first) then work your way up

Ok I have a while to learn it because I'm going to community college cause i fucked around too much so that means i have another like 2 years before I go into like my real college. Is flash games hard like games on new grounds and stuff.

Trying to make any games is hard, you need to master many concepts and programming in general to make games.
Start by learning basic programming before jumping into the gaming side of things.
^this tbh. you need to be able to program well before specifically programming a game.
