Where to start? Complete beginner

Dear all, 

You have something great going on here, congratulations! 

I am an investor, and have recently realized the great potential of programming in the world of trading, not only to automate trades, but for backtesting flexibility. 

I want to get into it, hence my question, where would you start? Which language is the easier to learn from the complete beguinning? (Thinking python). Any recommendation, learning resource, book ? 

Thousands of thanks for your time!

Also, I've been doing the tutorials on QuantConnect:

Thanks Ton and good luck!
