You'll have to put in some sort of effort. I can offer to teach, since I know C, Java, and a few others. But, I won't let you get away with just basics if you learn from me ;) 

Id like to get into coding as well as I’m 99% sure that’s whats gonna be involved in my future occupation but I don’t really know where to start and college is quite far away :P

There's no fast/easy way to learn it, and it depends on how you learn.

Programming takes a lot of time to 'learn'. I've been learning Java for 2-3 years and still have a ton to learn.
Your best bet is to take a class to get you going in the right direction, or use something like http://codecademy.com/. I don't personally like codecademy, though I know that's not true for everyone.

 

Different languages are good for different things. If there's something specific you want to be able to do, please share.

Barnacules Nerdgasm offers a C# series he calls Codegasm. I used it to get my feet wet in C#.

 

As for networking. Do you learn better from books or playing with the hardware? I'm not lucky enough to learn much from sitting in a classroom for 2&1/2 hours listening to chapter material and reading class books. The only way I learn anything and retain it is by getting my hands in it.

Being able to keep yourself motivated to repeatedly study and practice. Once you understand some key concept, try incorporating it into a simple project with a small scope. Even if it is boring at first, it will help you ensure you actually understand what you're reading/listening to.

I have bought a few books, I watch YouTube videos and I have a few podcasts. I keep a note taking app handy so I can quickly write down when at work. It is slow, but every bit of progress is gratifying.

If you're goal is to learn fast and be great, you'll probably fail. Keep in mind you're asking to how to learn a programming language. You didn't instantly learn English. It was gradual and most builds upon previous knowledge. Start small, keep it consistent.

C++ is quite difficult to learn, it's like trying to learn to drive heavy haul trucks, when you should start by learning to drive regular cars and go from there.

 

I would suggest starting with a more "relaxed" programming language like PHP, or maybe Python, maybe even C#  - for all you should be able to easily find some books in the "for beginners" category, not quite like the "for dummies" series but something a bit higher quality than that.

If you're serious you learn the basic concepts, like variables, data types, functions, and programming notions like if then else  or while some condition is met then do something, repeat this stuff until something happens

Once you have a grasp on these, then you can advance to some stricter programming languages, or more difficult languages like C++

 

Programming is not something you can learn by watching a few hours of Youtube, you'd probably be better off reading books and actually TRYING the examples (and messing around with the examples) after each lesson by yourself even if you think you understood the lesson

You can learn the basics of software development through coding over a weekend if you get a book or go to a website that has tutorials. Though this will just get you the basics and the programs you'll be making are very simple and not very useful

 

If you want to learn anything beyond that, you're going to have to put a lot more effort into it.  And it could take months before you're ready for something more complex.

Here's a tip

 

See

 

1. Amazon com > books > programming languages

2. Amazon.com > books > programming

 

pick your programming language, pick the difficulty (for beginners, for beginner-advanced etc), look at what has best reviews considering the target audience of the book

 

Then buy the book or LOAN it from library or RENT it  (and make paper copies if you want and return it)  or search for it (torrents, dc++, newsgroups)

 

See for example http://gen.lib.rus.ec/ - search engine for books, enter there for example python and see how many results you get
