I am just starting in programming

Hey all
I'm new to this forum and programming as well.

I'm pretty interested in programming and a few months ago, I tried to learn some C++. I've bought C++ for dummies and the sams teach yourself C++ book. I slowly stopped with the book because of school and problems between friends and those were what bothered me the most at that time. Now that I want to return to learn these, I thought that it'd be good to find a site like this first so I can ask for help on my progress.

Is there any recommendation on how I should start learning?
I would finish the books when I have time starting from these days but I don't think thats anything, like its just really basics isn't it? I wanted to take classes at school but the school seem to go really slow on teaching. I browsed a lot of tafe courses that offers certificate in IT and stuffs, but I'm not sure whether self learning is faster and more worth it or not. I'm only 15 atm, turning 16 this year.

My main goal was to focus on network security but I just thought that I probably need to learn some programming languages first because I though that being able to write programs is necessary in network security? Please do correct me if I'm wrong, that was just my guess. if I wanted to learn network security, should I be learning C++ first? Or maybe learn languages like javascript, HTML first?

Thanks all

HTML is usually the best language to start with, it's simple, and easy to pick up. Once you have that down, I would suggest JS. Once you get basic web languages down, I'd move on to more advanced web languages like php/basic programming like batch and C++.

html is not a programming language...
I myself recommend python (relatively) easy to learn easy and fun to use :)

I would look into python. It is relatively easy.
What is python
how to learn python
(and I don't mean those to be mean)
