I thought I'd start this thread about useful sites programmers could go to if they needed general help or information about programming.

This forum gets a lot of, "What programming language should I start off with?" or "How do I get started on PHP?" type questions.

Great places to start are always:

Programmers Heaven

The Fellowship of Hobbyist Programmers

For those looking for free tutorials and guides online:

Researchers demonstrate ultra low-field nuclear magnetic resonance using Earth's magnetic field

Saint, here are some resources for DirectX programming:

The Open Source Alternative to DirectX is SDL and can be found here:

SDL provides native 2d support and uses OpenGl for 3d support.

With both of these packages be prepared to know serious c++. You must understand things like callback functions and be aware of object oriented programming.

Technology will come and go. Complexity itself, algorithms, programming languages will stay with us. There is no substitute for practice. These are my favourite programming sites:

Stick with what is important. The rest will be easy.

The following link contains free computer programming e-books by Bruce Eckel on C++ and Java, books that shouldn't be missed.
