    If you're talking about developing for Windows 10 then...

    I recently took an interest in developing for Windows 10 as well. From what I found, you first need to know the basics of the c# programming language.

    You can learn this with the free videos provided by Microsoft and bob tabor from Microsoft virtual academy. "C# for absolute beginners" is the name of the course

    On MVA there is also a 80 video beginners guide to developing UWP apps.

    Hope this help.

    ps. the program used will be visual studio 2015. it's free.

    Also to note there are two sets of videos from bob tabor. in the older one he uses vs 2013 but in the newer one he uses vs 2015.

    Edit:

    Here is the link. https://mva.microsoft.com/en-US/trai...RIC_1306218949

    You're welcome :)

    I'm still trying to wrap my head around c# before I head to UWP. I have absolute NO programming background. lol

    You can create apps in RemObjects Oxygene language if you don't like C#. I like it a lot better. It is Pascal based and has a lot of nice features and isn't horribly expensive.

    Haven't had to time do it myself yet, but I've also heard great things about the guide ttsoldier linked.

    If you've never coded before, or at least not in C#, you'll want to go through their guide for that (which ttsoldier mentioned, but here's the link): https://channel9.msdn.com/Series/C-F...lute-Beginners

    It even has a lesson on installing Visual Studio, which is what you'll be using for development :) Best of luck!

    I know this is an old thread, but I'll give my 2 cents as it may help someone out.

    For beginners, who want to try and wrap their mind around programming, I usually recommend python. It's simple, basic, free, and used a lot still. There are libraries to make anything really. NASA, just as an example, uses python quite a bit. Google's spiders are made with python.

    If you're wanting to do UWP and Windows-based apps C# is the way to go. Its simple and does a lot of the difficult stuff, like managing memory, for you.

    If you're looking for a language to work with the lower-levels of hardware, you may want to look at C or C++. If you're looking for universal, Java is pretty universal.

    Now as for resources where you can learn some of these languages:
    Python - https://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/
    C# - https://www.tutorialspoint.com/csharp/
    C++/Java/C/Anything else - I would probably recommend a book and a lot of Googling.
