For about 2 years or so I have been looking for a good path to follow to get into programming; however,I can't really find a good path, program, or tutorial to fit my needs. People have told me that having a good understanding of languages like C,C#, or C++ would really benefit me. Currently I am watching this tutorial, but I feel like there has to be a better path, so I wanted to ask Jim and any other programmer here if they had any suggestions :D

Depends what you want to program for (web, desktop, etc...), tell us that and we'll give you a better answer.

I would think desktop applications would relate more towards my goals. Professionally, having an understanding of how programming looks like and works would help me work, but personally making a cheat or something like that would help me spend my time doing something useful.

C++. I started with VB.NET but it sucks for anything else than simple gui programs.

Starting with anything other than C++ will just make you lazy and you will likely pick up bad habits (I started with C#, which has spoiled me far too much)

People generally tell me the same thing, but no one has a good resource for me to start with. I need a book or some kind of free course because I just don't know what I should do to learn C++. Any good books, video series, or other resources are what I am really interested in.

I just started copy+pasting and then actually figuring out step by step what things does, that's how i got started and i learn every day.
The most important part is actually having motivation for learning, and that's what gives me the motivation.

That isn't true man, "People generally tell me the same thing, but no one has a good resource for me to start with.

If you put your mind to it you can do it, you don't need expensive books or school just stick to the basics then advance on slowly. Look at Steve Jobs, although he was a dropout he followed his passion and made Apple <3. Steve Jobs was living that welfare life too XD.

I wasn't talking about the types of books in college that go into huge detail, but for me I need some kind of start to get me going. I usually prefer guides made informally because they usually get to the point.
