I am going to school right now and my school's introduction to programming class introduces us to Visual Basic.net 2003. I have never dealt with programming before. I have only looked at html code and not played around with it. What is the best way to start read some dummies books, go to a beginning programming class in my local community? I am leaning more of going to my library and borrowing some books. Or are there free tutorials on the Internet that I could use? Any help would be appreciated.
