You can read some tutorials, but the most effective way to learn is:
1. Find a simple problem to solve.
2. Write a simple program to solve that problem.

You will learn more advanced concepts along the way.

An example:
1. Write a text program that asks the user for a number. Print the number.

2. Write a text program that asks the user for 2 numbers. Print the numbers.

3. Write a text program that asks the user for 2 numbers and an operation to perform (one of +, -, *, /). Print the result of the two numbers operated upon (added, subtracted, multiplied, divided), etc.

4. Fix the program, so that it doesn't allow division by zero.

5. Make the program work with arbitrary numbers (integers, decimals, etc.).

You may start with a simple programming language, e.g. python, or javascript.

Along the way you will learn about data types. And data types will shed the light about concept of binary, memory, etc.

Start with a simple concept.
