    Hi Neil,

    Welcome to Certforums :biggrin

    I guess the first question would be what sort of programmes do you want to develop? Web based applications, applications to run on windows/linux, Computer games??

    If you give us a bit more info about what you're interested in we can point you in the right direction. 8)

    Hi Welcome

    As stoney says there a various different applications you could develop for using various different languages.

    C++ is a common language you could maybe get some learning aids on it and start using that, or visual Basic. There are many languages but as I said C++ is a popular one amongst programmers.

    Greetings & Welcome to CF

    As for the question you asked I have to agree with Stoney & GBL there, unless you do a little soul searching then you could be wasting your time. You really need to know what you want to get out of it before putting something into it!:biggrin
