I will have to agree with both Wes and Alan, they provide great
resources. However, the issue you will face is three-fold. You need

1. Write lots of good code.
2. Write lots more good code.
3. Show a whole lot of good code you've written.

If you want to program professionally I suggest getting a job in
computers that is near where you want to be. Develop your programming
skills and your work reputation at the same time. Your porfolio of
lots of good code will require more than one language, software
lifecycle and version control, specification writing,

To write good code you need books, experience, and lots of critical
review. Otherwise you'll be writing lots of bad code that won't get
you anywhere. Feedback is critical to growth.
