Free Programming Help
If you want to learn how to program but are getting overwhelmed by the number of options as well as the various wordings in programming language, there is a free program called StencylWorks (http://www.stencyl.com/) that simplifies the coding language by using blocks to visually show the coding instead of the standard typed languages.
A friend of mine has really taken to StencylWorks and is working on a set of tutorials for it. She also offers free help for using StencylWorks through her livestream.
If you want to learn how to program, this is a great place to start. You can branch off from Stencyl into Actionscript 3 (the current major programming language for flash) and from there can tackle the basics in most languages.
