I am new to the computer programming field, in fact, I don't know a single thing about all the different languages.
I love web design and a webmaster, if you will, but I want to start programming computers instead of just websites now.
I'm a 7th grade homeschooler and I have a good amount of free time which I spend just lazying around. I would like to go into the field of video game programming, but i know I have to learn plenty of other stuff as a base first.
I found a wonderful book that will start me off in game programming, but I first need to learn the basics of application programming. I would like to learn C,C++, and C#, but I'm not sure if I should start out with that, because my brother, a computer science major, said those would be good to start out with, but I also need to learn other languages.
Could anyone please recommend a few languages that would be good for me to start out on, a few more for an Intermediate level and some books that could help me learn them.
