Coding total noob

Post by tidumarco »

Hello everyone, tomorrow I will put my hands on a Atari 1040 ste and I'm really excited about that... The point is that I've never programmed something in my life so I want to start and I'm really interested in that. No PC programming, everything only on the Atari.
Could you please giving some advices on:

- Software?
- Languages to use?
- Books to read for programming?

I'm a quick learner and lover of informatic stuff.

Thanks to all!

Marco
