Just started programming on Mac

Well the title says it all, I am a very curious person and I am thirsty for knowledge. I downloaded Xcode earlier today and I have no idea which program to use, I saw something with C++ and Cocoa and I started one just to check out the interface.
I have tried to download multiple coding programs and Xcode is the only one I could get to work so if you will have any suggestions on books, websites, please let it be in the program I downloaded, not anything else! I am quick to learn and tutorials on what is in there would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have any previous programming experience? What are your goals? What is your budget (time, money, motivation)?

I've been in this place. You need a goal - it's easy to get lost in the number of options. You need to look around and decide the kind of programming/development you want to do.

If you've never programmed in anything before I'd take a look at some C beginner tutorials - they'll give you a good grounding.
