Hey there.

I'm not being sarcastic or derogatory here but one of the best book sets for learning to code I have found is the 'For Dummies' range. If you can look past the title of the book itself (one is never going to be necessarily attracted to a book entitled "C++ for dummies" are they?) they honestly are a great resource for someone starting on the coding learning curve. While I can only vouch for the VB and C++ versions of this range I found them both informative and helpful ( and they would be especially so for anyone who literally is starting from nothing [may not be true in your case but it is for others.] )

Hope someone finds this useful.

I'd personally say go with C++ first, but that may be biased as it's what I did :)
Here's an outline of how you may learn C++; Program the following:
1. Hello World! - Learn the basic setup of all your programs.
2. A program that takes input, a string, and prints it out to the cmd prompt - Learn how to use a variable and cin>>/cout<<.
3. Calculator - More variables, arithmetic, cin>>/cout<<...
4. Calculator2 - Be able to calculate powers and use a new library/class to make it easy.
5. Palindrome Checker - For example radar is a palindrome (spelled the same <- and ->). Be able to verify it pragmatically. Incorporate arrays, and then modify it to work with vectors.
6. Standard Deviation Calculator - Incorporate arrays/vectors. Fill the arrays/vectors with like 1000 random numbers and calculate.
7. Mortgage Calc - Because you'll program 1.2 million variations of the good ole' mortgage calculator in college.
8. Mortgage Calc - Now use classes in your code! Yay!
9. Learn polymorphism...
10. Learn Java, C#, Python - once you learn one, it's easy to pick up another by the way.

All of these programs are NOT graphical! They are going to all be using the CMD. Once you learn Java or C#, it's easy to incorporate a GUI.

Sorry for any mistakes in my writing! Laters!
