not really looking for web development. Looking to learn Pseudo code C C++ C# LISP Python etc. But I want to learn the fundamentals of programming before I dive right into learning a language if that makes sense. Whats a good way to learn programming on the internet?

Computer information systems generally deals with the web development side of programming. However if you want to get started programming I think C++ or Java would be a good start. These give a good foundation for OOP.

As for books, I've been using this book (http://www.amazon.com/Starting-Out-Java-Control-Structures/dp/0321421027/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1364011863&sr=8-4&keywords=starting+out+with+java) in the classroom, it's about three semesters long of material and can get you pretty deep into Java. There is a book by the same author and very similar to material for C++ as well. Hardly anything changes each edition so don't waste your money on the newer versions.

this (http://www.tizag.com/perlT/) should give you basic undestanding of perl.
it's not a dificult language and in most cases you'll be able to do everything you'll need using it.

just to give you an example how easy it is: some time ago i was experimenting with google's speach recognition. i wanted my ubuntu server to react on voice commands.
so i wrote a script in perl to establish connection with remote server, listen, encode audio, send it to google, get back text, and do what i tell it to do. everything making sure connection is always open to save time on negotiation.
it took me maybe 3 hours and that was my first contact with perl.

also perl's syntax is similar to C so it should be easy for you to make a transition to some "more serious" language when you'll need to.
java i wouldn't recommend. read this: http://www.jwz.org/doc/java.html ;)

As per my idea, Simply if you can easily learn php language so, you can join classis of programming or developing and if you want to work hard so, you can learn more own by google search engine.

If you are new for programing then, there are so many source available on Internet. I think w3school.com (http://www.w3schools.com/) is one of the best site to learn all about programming for different types of languages.

Hello..
I am recommend you these sites to learn programming language.
w3schools[dot]com
Cramster[dot]com

There are also video tutorial available on Internet. First you have to decide which programming language you want to learn then search for that particular language. But C Language is basic pro. language so if you start from C then it will better for you.

Learn from online tutorial, after learning practice is must be necessary. I suggest you "w3schools" sites for learn any programing language with practical example.

Java is the foundation for virtually every type of networked application and is the global standard for developing and delivering enterprise software, web-based content, games and mobile applications. Java enjoys a large and mature ecosystem with strong tools support. Java delivers application portability and robust performance across many computing environments.
