TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
A book will not tell you how programming works, it will only help you with a language. Moreover you will not be able to get started if you do not learn how to debug. And believe me, a stupid bug that will take an experience programmer 2 seconds to solve, could take you days. The language you learn has minimal importance, the logic behing the code is what counts. Take a basic programming class, then an object oriented programming class. I suggest java or C++ as they are the most widely used.
It will not make you a programmer, but it will enable you to read code and understand what is going on.
