Like way new. I used to play around with Qbasic years ago, but my job took me in a direction that didn't allow me much time for that. Can you recommend a book for someone who would like to begin with programming? I'd like to learn something new- my job has been just HTML, etc. for the last few years. I'd like to be able to write programs or begin to learn the basics. I've found a "For Dummies" book and a "Learn C++ in 24 hours" book, but I'm not sure what's most appropriate for a complete noviciate.
