Hi Bustin!

 

You could start choosing a easy programming language (dont hesitate much about this) and looking for some good tutorials.

 

Personally I recommend you read the following article: http://www.gamefromscratch.com/post/2011/08/04/I-want-to-be-a-game-developer.aspx. Contains very useful links to start on the programming language that you want.

 

I hope I have been helpful. Greetings!

Choose a programming language and buy a good book for beginners.  The book will start you off assuming you know nothing.  By the time you finish the book you should be pretty competent in that language.

I like Codecademy for a quick intro into programming.

This. Don't just buy a "gold standard" comprehensive book if you are starting from scratch, because you won't understand any of it and will get discouraged. Beginner books exist for a reason - use them (check reviews first, though, and this forum has hundreds of similar threads with very good recommendations for almost any language you can think of).


“If I understand the standard right it is legal and safe to do this but the resulting value could be anything.”

I suppose you get a book that teaches you about the programming language and the phylosophy, like object-oriented programming at the same time. I recommend the book Java How to program, 6th edition by H. M. Deitel. Knowing a programming language is a good thing, but knowing how to program properly is a huge step to take, and it'll be way easier for you at early stage :)
