Okay so I am a single dad, juggling two jobs and I want to get into programming on my spare time.

I don't have time to take classes so my only option is learning online/books.

I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion on what would be a good language to start with, and if they know any good books I could look into.

Thanks in advance.

Pascal is a good language to learn, it was made to teach people how to program, not very useful to make real programs, but still a good start.. most good Computer Science courses that I know use it to teach the basics of programming..

If you want something more pratical, you could try Javascript, Flash (Actionscript) or Python.. those are cool to just "have fun"

Python is easy just to play around with, and once you get a better understanding how everything works, try your hand at C/++
