Newbie Programming Resources

Here are some useful resources for folk new to programming

Tonight I asked the internet for recommendations on newbie friendly programming books and resources, and the internet obliged me with some excellent suggestions :-)

I just wanted to record these here for later review.

If you would like to contribute, I am essentially looking for books that assume no prior knowledge and could teach a person the basics of programming. I am rubbish at recommending this type of stuff because the books I have read recently all assume some level of knowledge at some point. Please comment or hit me up on Twitter!
