    you might look up some sites on HTML= Hyper Text Markup Language--the code that websites and programs are based on. Just type it into your search bar or go to your local library.

    There are a lot of good ones, I would browse through Microsoft.com because they are the leaders. As stated above my post they offer a lot of free development tools on their site as well as help. Once you get going and get more comfortable with coding, if it seems to be right for you, remember to come back to Microsoft and look again for links to coding sections, you might get to join some of the groups and who knows may become the next coder for a future Windows, or Word program.

    To learn more and for more links to some of the books you might need, I would start in the learning area of Microsoft. Find the kind of coding you are going to be doing. ie: C++, or VB and look for training links also.

    I would start here: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/default.mspx

    And I would be patient and search through the links to see what you can use, also save pages to you favorites so you can go back quickly. Hope this helped.

    Go to a bookstore or online and read up on JAVA or C or Basic languages. Java being free you can just download it and use it. There are plenty of help available online. Once you write and compile one then you will get more idea which one is better. Java is really hot one at this point and so is .NET.
