ray welcome to codingforums! The first thing you need to decide is web programming, application programming, game programming, or all of the above.
You are new so I will point out a few things you may not know.
Pretty much every forum and sub form on CF has stickies at the top of the forum listing all kinds of great references and general posting rules. I highly recommend you read these first before posting as sometimes you end up asking for information that is sitting out in plain view and you may get some negative responses from people.
