i have been interested in programing web-based games for a long time now, ive tried programs and the like, and i want to know if there is any solid literature where i can begin learning about the basics of programming and beyond. i already have a C++ for dummies book (lol), but im pretty sure thats pretty advanced for somebody at my level. i have heard that programming involves math skills, well im in the 10th grade, so it shouldnt be a problem. if anyone knows or any good books that explains basic programming skills for absolute beginners that doesnt include "for dummies" titles? also, on a side note, what language do you recommend for beginners?
