Starting from Scratch

I guess we all have to start somewhere, when there is something we want to do but we have to learn it first. I'd like to learn how to program browser games one day, but that will require me to, first, learn how to program at all. So, first things first I signed myself up on the website www.gamedev.net to be able to receive help and tips from people who are already into game design and hopefully hear from others who are just as new as I am.

It went really well and a few people have already noticed me on there. My first recommendations for learning programming languages were C#. I already know this language a little and decided to download the Microsoft Visual C# & C++ 2008 Express editions (they are free as you might know). The C# because it was recommended and the C++ because I will be taught the C++ language when I attend the university again after my summer break. Looking forward to learning these two programming language and hopefully getting to know how to make really basic games.

I've also ordered my first training book for C#, a book from Microsoft also called Visual C#.NET 2008 Step by Step. Hopefully this will help me get started with my self studies. University will give some pointers as too what good books about C++ I will need to I will wait a bith with those books.
