    Idk, can you get "Hello, world" working?

    Then I'd start messing around with arrays.

    Then I'd learn how to link a list which also teaches you pointers.

    If you google "hello world in C" you should have a complete example.

    Otherwise, I'd just google "beginner C programming assignments".

    Welcome to the forum, Venus!

    Near the top (center) of this web page, you'll see a link to the excellent C Tutorial. By all means, study it - it's one of the best I've seen on the net.

    There is also a C++ Tutorial link up at the top of the page. Plenty of good stuff there, as well.

    And don't forget to Google for more tutorials on whichever language you want to work with - there are many around. None are as good as the C one, imo.

    Welcome Venus!

    Not to scare you away, but read this: Teach Yourself Programming in Ten Years. You don't have to spend 10 years becoming an expert, but it will take time and dedication. The author has a lot of great general advice about becoming a good programmer, the most important IMO (especially for beginners) is to program. Do as many problems as you can. Make sure they challenge you, if they are too easy you wont learn much. Also, don't just do some programming exercises, make a study of them. How well did your design work to solve the problem? What parts were good and why? What parts were not so good and why? What could you have done better? Also, this forum is here to help, so use it. If you are stuck, and you can't find the answer in your books or tutorials, then ask us.

    A solid basic mathematical logical way of thinking is critical, if you have any issue with it Khan Academy is awesome. I am a new programer as well and I just started learning C after Visual Basic. Visual Basic is really easy to learn and teaches a lot about programing. After all VB it is written in C++ which I found interesting. As others have said, it takes time and dedication and you have to feel eager to solve bugs yourself without someone giving you the answer. This site is amazing and many people here will point you in the right direction.

    Good luck!!!
