Ok..I just started working at Barnes and Noble which gives me a 30% discount on anything in the store. I plan on spending a good chunk of change on some computer programming, A+ and some other computer-related books. I'm doing this because I love computers and I need to start thinking about a career that involves them. Can anyone recommend any good books and/or classes to take that would get me somewhat prepared for this?
My interests are as follows....
-Networking(I have no experience with this yet)
...I'd like to learn how to program....but I don't know where to start. I'm a complete n00b and I have no idea which programming language does what...so any help on that would be greatly appreciated. Like I said, I get paid every week and each time I plan on buying a different book, and I plan on starting this next Friday.
I'm a really fast learner and I'm pretty smart but because my Highschool didn't offer anything of this nature, I'm having to go this route. Any help is much appreciated.....thanks!
