Hope admins will not delete my post) the advice is really helpful.
My friends have created an online interactive programming course - http://codeasy.net. There you learn just by reading an adventure story about fighting machines in the future. While reading, you meet challenges that require real coding to solve. Course is designed for complete beginners and is one of the best ways to taste programming if you have never done this before
It is completely free. We will be grateful for your feedbacks on the service.
