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.
