  1.   I can't seem to find any book for teaching programming language and stuffs from the national bookstore which is the biggest supplier here in the philippines. I can find eBooks but I won't be getting a bank account till I'm 18.
  2.  I'm going to try your tutorials but to the next viewers do you have any idea on how make it more fun and do you know where can I download and print references for programming languages, scripting languages and markups (specially HTML5)
  3.       I started having interest in bunch of stuffs when I became 13 years old, back then all I do was play games and study when we don't have internet connections ( yet I still get good grades and stays in the top 5 for our grade ). When I became 13 years old I had interest in doing stuffs like: *Speedcubing   solving rubicks cubes and other type of cubes is fun once you know how to solve it so I try to beat my record of solving a cube. *Drawing    I still need alot of pratice since I can't draw without reference *Magic Tricks    It's amazing seeing other trying to figure out how you do stuffs. *Singing with auto tune    I have a pretty rough voice, well they told me it's going to be smoother after some time which came true *Pen Spinning   Spent months... Only learned 3-4 tricks considering I didn't really focus on this one. Which I can say I became pretty good, I even learned how to do hand stands  .   Now that I'm 14 I am now interested in programming, I know HTML, and basics of flash and java. Since I wanted to start doing websites first before studying game programming I decided to go back to web programming and study JavaScript and JQuery. But the problem is that since I have too much hobby, I get distracted all the times whenever I see youtube recommending tutorials on my other hobbies and ended up improving them than studying programming. I get less distraction when I read written tutorials but It doesn't give me the same impact when I'm watching video tutorials. Another problem is that after 15-20 mins of watching video tutorials I get sleepy and ends up watching BuzzFeed videos. I can say that as my understanding in programming goes deeper, It makes it more boring. Doing script while watching video tutorials removes that boredom but It makes stuff longer. Longer then it will take more time whereas I don't have much time since I have school.   What should I do to avoid distractions and become more excited with learning it (avoid getting sleepy)?
  4. What language should I know before tackling C, C# and C++? Java, Flash or Python? Can you please recommend any book to me to get started, well I already know html and the basics of Java and Flash?  What method do you think will make it easier to learn programming languages?   I'm basically looking for a book who explains stuffs not like this online tutorials where I needed to use Google just to understand what are does those tags and terms really means. By the way, I'm just a high schooler who wants to be a game programmer.
  5. Additional Questions: I learned HTML already but I still need references to make it work, I know the basics of Java and Flash but I found out that Python is much more simple and these articles says that you should learn Python before C, C# or C++. If I want to tackle C badly so should I continue with Java and Flash or Focus more on Python? Can you recommend any books to help me work with learning programming languages? Internet Tutorials are not really working good enough for me because they don't explain stuffs well and I always go and use google to know what they really mean. What is the best way or best method to memorize tags and stuffs? (Should I like make something while learning or just learn all of them first and try using them later?) Do they teach math and stuffs in Computer Science course?
  6. 4. You should get a Computer Science degree.     With those said does that mean that there are no courses that will teach you about game developing? While I'm still in high school can you recommend books for me to learn other programming language that I will need to know? If I study programming language early will it lessen my struggle when I go to college?   Thanks for all of the advice.
  7.        Hello, I want to introduce myself first. I'm a 14 year old (pretty young) guy who wants to do what I want and earn a living for doing it. I'm unfortunately born in a poor country which is the Philippines.       I started having interest in games when I was 4 years old. No one in our family likes gaming as much as I do. I discovered gaming after getting my first console. My mom didn't bought me something like a PC, XBOX , or a PlayStation. My first console is a NES where I first played Super Mario, Bomberman, and obviously Duck Hunt. As years pass by I can consider myself a casual gamer. I once got too much addiction on gaming and ends up playing 2-3 days straight. After playing that long I felt really bad and got myself a restriction to gaming whereas I'm only allowed to play games for 5 hours in a day. I lose interest in playing MMORPG because of that but I never lost my hate to FPS because I suck init.     When I reached high school I became more aware of my health and felt like doing something productive so I studied taekwondo (martial arts), practiced drawing alot I even got myself a junk Genius Graphic Tablet which is the worst so I end up drawing on papers and now I'm learning html. I feel alot better now I still practice drawing but I quited taekwondo. One day I felt like html is fun and decided that I should just continue more and try to know how C++ works. I started learning html to improve my site which is http://leogamingblogs.blogspot.com. Now I know a little bit about Java and Flash but I want to reach a whole new level and do this to earn my living when I grow up.    So this are my questions:     *Can I work on other country where I can received good salary as a game programmer even If I will go to college in the Philippines?    - I think Philippine Education is nothing if you compare it to other University on more developed countries. I feel like the fact that I came and studied in the Philippines will have an impact on the way companies will think of my skills.     *Should I just give up and find something new?    *What college course do I need to take? ( What if I just try and learn from books and tutorials.)    *Why does games from our country doesn't go well?     -Is it because of our Education, Our ideas are not that great, or We just don't have the skill. I'm aware that most of us doesn't want to pay for our games so games that only us can relate to doesn't go as successful as the other games.

P.S I titled it "A Question" because I didn't really plan on asking more than 1 question.
