This is such an open ended question. In order to answer this question with any degree of accuracy the person answering the question would need to know what exactly are you trying to accomplish with the knowledge.
Writing for the web requires a different set of skills and languages than you would need to write mobile apps, writing a gaming application for a PC or a specific gaming hardware platform would also require a different set of languages and tools than writing a dynamic web application.
Even writing a static web application as compared to a dynamic web application requires different skill sets.
You need to be more specific as to what you are trying to accomplish with the knowledge.

I have read through your question a couple times now and still have not figured out, by the question, what you are trying to accomplish. In order to accurately answer your question, I need to know that.
Programming has many different areas of focus. If you can give me an idea what you are wanting to do with the programming you learn I may be able to point you in the right direction.
Try to think of visiting Japan. It would do you know go to learn Hindi or Dutch and visit Japan. Programming is know different. If you want to develop web sites, that requires different programming skills, then writing stand-alone mobile apps, which in turn would be different than writing for game development on a PC.
Many of the languages have commonalities in how they are structured but they are different skill sets.

It does not only help you to build your custom sites but you can build or developing sites from popular platforms as Wordpress, Joomla or Drupal.

If you have no background in web development, PHP is not the place to start.
If you are wanting to learn web development, stay away from frameworks, like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. They are great for building rapid site development but DO NOT follow "Best Practices". They are difficult to maintain proper SEO techniques and because of their popularity are constant targets for hackers with many security issues.

If you want to start learning programming concepts right away, I recommend Python. After you understand basic concepts such as a boolean, perhaps you can stop learning Python and learn a more powerful language like Java. Python is easy for a lot of people to learn quickly because the syntax looks like basic English. It's also still widely used today.

Well python is a good place to start, I think python is geared toward video game making, Scratch is a good place to start for kids, even making mods for Minecraft is a good place to start, you may not learn much coding, but it helps to put your mind into the general process of how coding works.

in the begining you should learn html and css really well cause they are the base of programming after that its depend you will find a lots of language so you should draw your path and know really what you want a back end developper or a front end developper and then continue with learning

In terms of learning how to code and get a very high skills in coding i would recommend the codeschool.com its a school online that you can learn how to code or program learning online has many advantage you can learn when you just want its not like an ordinary school its like a home schooling that youre the one who will decide when or where you want to learn so its very nice to give it try and learn there im assuring that you can learn fast but it depends on you always.

I guess you need to start with the basics, like C, HTML or Java. I think these will be helpful if your goal is to earn through coding. After mastering those, then you can proceed with advanced languages, which are pretty related with the basics.
But then, the decision will be yours, if you want python, then be it. Try if for yourself, and good luck.

As you said Your background is visual basic. So, I can assume who have some prior knowledge of coding and you are eager to develop your coding skills. Then Python is the best start for your goals to achieve. If even you do not have any prior knowledge of coding PYTHON is very easy to learn and have a huge scope in the IT sector. Learn python from the best Python training Institute in Noida for 2 to 3 months and become expert of programming languages.
Hope this information will help you!!
