    Reading materiel for beginners?

    Hello all!

    I'm completely new to computer programming besides watching some short demos online. Can anyone suggest some beginner books or websites that I can start with? Maybe a point in the right direction? Thank you.

    Programming

    In My actual point of view if you are beginners in programming field then you can read book of wrox and balaguruswamy for basic knowledge of Programming.

    Depends how specific you want to get...for video tutorials I like thenewboston (on YouTube)...as far as books, I can really only offer my input as far as C#.

    On my bookshelf:

    Beginning Object Oriented Programming with C# (Wiley/Jack Purdum, 2012)
    C# 4.0 The Complete Reference (McGraw-Hill/Schildt, 2010)
    WPF 4.0 Unleashed (Sams/Nathan, 2010)

    I started with the first when I was just getting into programming, and the second/third are now my go-to quick references along with MSDN. I'm not a huge fan of the Head First/Dummies/24-hour books, but everyone learns different so you should still take a look at them to see if they suit your learning style.

    Note: If you are just looking for a sort of introduction to programming approach, check out half.com as they usually have some intro to CompSci/intro to programming books that should at least get your feet wet.
