I know there are so many forums out there with the exact same question, but none of them have answered the question for me.
As someone who has never learned anything about programming, I'm just wondering where to start. I've seen people saying you should learn programming logic and such before learning an actual language, but I just have no idea what they're talking about. Can I just start with Visual Basic or something similar without any prior knowledge in programming? And how long would it take to move onto something more advanced like C++?
I'd like to have some kind of knowledge of C++ level programming in the next couple of years and eventually aim to use it for game development (I plan to take a course in game programming in 2 years), but when I start to look at these Visual Basic tutorials such as this one: (http://howtostartprogramming.com/vb-net/) they just seem to go nowhere. Can anyone just point me in the right direction here?
