    As you said you are a beginner, you need to start from C Programming language. There are man websites where you can learn C programming free of cost.

    I merged your threads here. Please do not start multiple threads on the same topic.

    Find a beginner's class.

    I would disagree with Devendra, C is a very difficult language to get your head around and usually a poor choice of first language.

    Which is the best starting language will always be the subject of heated debate. I know that a number of computer science courses start by teaching their student's Python, which apparently strikes a good balance between being accessible and helping you to learn good programming practices.

    The best approach for you would depend on why you want to learn it and what resources you have, but in general your best approach is to find a course on it, and failing that to work through a book. Note, however, that programming is not something you can learn by reading about, you have to build up your experience actually doing it.

    Exactly,

    I personally recommend VB.NET if you are learning on Windows. Or even the new Basic.NET (I don't personally like the lack of required type declarations).

    I recommend VB.Net for 2 reasons.
    1) Fairly easy to learn with its English like syntax (dim myVariable as string, if something happens then do something)...
    2) .Net is a HUGE part of Windows. Learning how .Net works will teach you a good deal about various Windows issues too.

    I started with QBasic, and even then the copyright on the interpreter I was using expired 2 years before I was born!

    Ramesh, if you mean the programs you need to try programming in C or VB.NET search the web for "C Compiler" or "VB.NET Compiler." I don't have any recent experience so can't be any more specific, but probably others can. Or if you mean you want to start learning search for "C tutorial" or VB.NET tutorial."

    If you're going to start with VB.net, download Visual Studio.
    You can get the express version for free (whereas the professional versions cost quite a lot), and it has more than enough power for a beginner.

    Also, if you happen to be a student at a university, you can probably register at Dreamspark to get a free copy of Pro, as well as certain versions of Windows (Usually just server)

    I started with BASIC... was a good times :)

    I think the first is to know there is various ways to programming (programming paradigm).

    You can start playing this game Robomind and learn some coding.
    Also if you want to lean OOP (Object-Oriented Programming), you can try Greenfoot.

    Programming is fun, so I hope this resources help you.

    Thanks for reading.
