    New Programmers Start Here

    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:

    O'Reilly Resources

    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.
