I'm looking to build a four legged robot (I'm new to this, aside from the Internet ) that follows a light, and auto-adjusts for its balance (the centre part, with the board).
I would like to learn C++ for this, but I need to learn it first.
I found a website, www.cprogramming.com, but when I tried to compile it, it didn't work, so I would like to find a tutorial that another person who has tried it and had success.
Also, once this issue is resolved, I would like to find the code that would be necassary to include an 8 axis speedometer [...]
[...] how to develop the code necessary to use LEDs to detect light.

What You probably want to learn is C. Other reasonable choices might be: ASM and C# (.NET). Currently, C is very popular, widely adopted, plus, You can find many cheap microcontrollers that come with C compiler.

What You're looking for is photocell, or photo-diode; take a look at the robot tutorial I linked You to.
