I am just looking into something to do. I know that the Teen that helped build and design Firefox started as a pc programmer at 14yrs.

I want to try pc programming and see if I can make one. I know a little bit about HTML but would like to take on programming!

A computer programmer can make on average of 85k a year(msn poll)!

So is there any ways I can learn a little of it free? I want to see what its like.

Hope one of you can link me to a site.

Maybe like C++ or something basic to start off with. :thumbsup:

Thanks all

I think a fun way to learn programming is with visual basic. You can use microsoft visual basic express beta for free right now:

Also if you want to be able to learn how to program on the web, then take a look at php: www.php.net

I have to agree with Grinler on this.If you want an easy to learn programming language then VB is it. Plus you can find free source code all over the net to learn from.

Thanks I will take a look at it.

Is it me or am I trying to take on too much at one time?

This is just for the future. Im taking HTML ad w3schools now so I need to wait a bit.

VB is a good starting point. Programming is such that once you learn to use one language, the others (in this case most likely C++ later) become much easier. Once you get in the habit of the mental discipline needed to code, debug, and rewrite, leaning the differences in languages is fairly simple. The main thing is to write as much code as you can, even if it only does something simple; computer languages, like much knowledge, builds itself architechtonically by starting with rather simple modules and creating something more complex.
