You could try taking a look at the tutorials provided to you by Dream.In.Code, and if you cannot find what you are looking for there, there are plenty of tutorials out there regarding the coding of 2D games. Try a search engine.

Do you have any programming experience? If you don't you might want to start with some of the basics in console apps before moving on to graphics

OK, if you have some experience, it'll probably be easier to pick it up, the main part if programming fundamentals and theory :)

The only thing I would say is that you have experience in mostly software languages (VB and C#), so you might want to consider spending a few days learning the basics of C++ program structure, then try and build a couple of text based games. There's more to creating a game that just C++ too - you would need (and this is massively important) to look into some different graphics libraries and decide which is best for you. The two main industry-standard graphics libraries are:
DirectX
OpenGL

Personally, I'd recommend OpenGL, it's just a lot easier.

I hope this answers your question :)
