How should I start my programming career?
Alright so my dream job would to be a game programmer. Although I'd go for any kind of programming. My question is what language should I learn first. I am in high school so I have already taken some HTML but that's definitely not enough! :) Is there any recommended language I should learn like Java, Microsoft C++, etc. If so, is there any good tutorial books on that language and I don't mean like basic how to do stuff but some in depth programming in a sense where it'll teach me from start to finish. Basically the whole thing. If so, please state title and author. Thanks! :D
